I started out with Sprint back in 99' then I got this wild hair and decided to goto Nextell as my in-laws live in Tijuana, Mx. and the PTT gave us a great way to communicate without the long distance phone bill. Well, for a little while. I put my father in-law on my plan then I started getting these outragious bills for international PTT usage and for regular phone usage. Nextell and Sprint sell themselves as being one and the same on TV, but there not. they have different charging rates. We went to El Paso, Tx., where my wife used her Sprint phone without any problems and I had a H time getting a signal, then when I did on the U.S. side of the border, I got later got charged for international rates. I gave up on Nextell and went back to Sprint. Total loss was about and additional 160.00 per month for 4 months. My long distance bills were cheaper.
But now that they got this hybrid phone, I was wondering if any one out there lives near a national border and is getting charged for using either the PTT (Direct Connect) or the regular phone.
If the billing is still the same or their fine print on the contract is still there then I'll stick with my M1 IT ROCKS!!!!!
