I just joined Sprint on the Nextel side.

Got a rugged phone, the i365, need it since I am hard on phones. So far so good, Nextel has great coverage in my area and my number ported over quickly.

Plus, I found out I got a 22% discount with my employer, which is far better than that of AT&T.

So far I am amazed by the difference in call quality. I know Sprint Nextel gets a bad rap, but honestly, I get great service.

Congratulations on things going well for you so far, hope it continues.

Once you learn the inherent usefuleness of Nextel's fast PTT, you'll be even happier with how well it all works.

If you're looking for data and text-messaging, however, you chose the wrong carrier, because Nextel is weak on data and text-messaging.

You might want to look into the NextMail add-on feature, it's an incredibly handy tool, and the texting back from your friends/coworkers PC's to your phone is ultra-quick, not at all like the slow and erratic regular phone-to-phone texting on Nextel.

Yes, I came from AT&T to Nextel. Most people would laugh at that, but you know what, I want a solid phone with an external antenna that has superior call quality, I get that with my i365.

I use voice primarily plus the occasional text. I am learning how to use the DC feature with my other friends who have Boost, and it's a fun feature.

Plus, I have noticed that people around me all use AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile, which means their networks are overloaded in my area.

The only con is that we don't get roaming, but that's ok. I don't travel much across country, but when I do, I will pick up a cheap tracfone as a backup for when I am out of Nextel's coverage area.

Nextel phones are much better for texting than they once were. If you are just an occasional texter, you should be fine with what you have.
