maybe you should consider a different company all together because you are still going to get alot of dropped call and static.

Nextel has no cool phones. You will want to stay gsm to get the good ones (aside from Sprint). I'd get an unlocked one of ebay. I'd also vote for any of the new v series. mp3 ringtones, flip, built in vga camera, it seem like the perfect phone to me. Hopefully it won't have any of the motorola problems.

Nextel has no cool phones? i730, or the Phat Farm i733? Cool enough for Russel Simmons, it's cool enough for me. Also Sprint does not offer any GSM handsets. They are CDMA.

You don't get static on the Nextel network. Static is found on analog service. Nextel is 100% digital, packet data network. If you in a fringe area your voice will sound like a robot to the caller on the other end. As far as dropped calls go, Nextel in well under 2% unlike Verizon which runs closer to 5%.

I could definitely be wrong but my friend is a manager at radioshack and he said nextel isn't doing that good because their patent on the two-way is up. And there isn't going to be a nextel for that much longer.

You are wrong. The technmology that Nextel uses is proprietory Motorola iDEN. No other carrier uses iDEN except Nextel. The technology that Sprint and Verizon are using is a VOIP application from I believe Winphoria. Verizons push to talk(or better, push to wait) service has serious latency issues. 8-10 seconds is normal. With nextel call setup is sub-second. I do like the v60p that Verizon uses with there service.

thanx mmdstech 2 for all your feedback. and i have been a nextel fan for a while, i thik trhe only reason that people dislike it and say it has ****ty service and dropped calls is because they live in the boondocks or sumthin! and yes the i730 is WAY COOL! they took the i95 off of the market so maybe they are planning on a new phone soon, or at least i hope.

and all the motorola "v" phones are nice, just too dull and plain for me.

thanx,everyone still post though to tell me your thoughts

I have used both, and would go with the i730. It is smaller and has more features. Also, the sim from the condor series phone (ie: i90, i95) does not work in the new falcon series iDEN handsets ( i205,i305,i530,i730) Hope this helps!
