Verizon and ATT need to just quit with their week ass wanna be MILL spec PTT phones! If you want this phone for while at the beach, then fine..if you need a real Mill spec PTT phone get Nextel!

Don' waste your money on these inferior products!

I can't wait for the Motorola i576 now that's a real phone baby!

Why would you think there's a difference between 810F phones? They are all rated the same...

Have you held this phone Jake? I have, and it's nice. Used to work for Sprint, and it feels the same as an IDEN handset.

Does not matter what the phone feels like, I highly doubt if feels like a true Nextel hand set..but that is not my point ATT PTT platform is inferior.

You may be a Nextel fan but Sprint is not. Sprint is trying to dump the Nextel network for a fraction of what they bought it for. Sprint recently sold their cell towers to a third party as well.

AT&T happens to have the largest PTT network in the country and has faster PTT response times as well. The fact that they have a true Milspec phone late does not mean it is inferior. I have used this phone and I can say it is very solidly built and has great call quality which is what really matters.

buddy you are retarded.....uumm sprint sold them and is now leasing their towers.... and att DOES NOT have the largest ptt network 🤨 and it is not faster ny anymeans...also GSM call quality sucks. if you have not red, sprint and vzw won all the call quality awards in the nation( and they have CDMA)...att and tmobile were dead last 🤣

sprint is NOT dumping nextel either 🤨

nextel has been around for 15 years....att only has 3 year off ptt experience under their belt...pretty easy to choose who is better....

get you facts straight....

He's actually correct in the May 6th 2008 article of Information Week, it was reported that Sprint was trying to sell off the lame duck Nextel (see link)

Personally, Sprint would do good by getting rid of Nextel, Nextel is a sitting duck carrier; Out of date technology and a misguided way of business. Let's look at the fact (see quote) when I say misguided here's what I mean. The Nextel Buzz was a hybrid CDMA/iDen phone, CDMA used for voice/data while iden was used for PTT, this seemsed like an awesome way to go, as your using the faster (and more reliable CDMA network)for calls and data, now Sprint has turned the direction again and using only...

I am quite sure of my facts as they come from industry news, press releases and people in the industry.

You'll have to forgive me for not taking my information from a belligerent post and from someone who cannot spell and can barely construct a sentence.

Good day,
