Cellular Phone said:
The other companies' native networks pretty much cover the same areas as Nextel. Only AT&T and Verizon have a larger native network than Nextel, but AT&T's native network doesn't cover the western states as much as Nextel.

T-Mobile's native network is tiny, and Sprint's CDMA network is slightly smaller than it's iDEN network.

So if you are like most people and live in a region serviced by all the major carriers, Nextel is just as good as its competition in terms of coverage.

I agree. A backup phone was something I used maybe less than 1% of the time. Still, some folks worry about that 1%.
