Nextel Partner's Question for Jess (and others)


Jan 6, 2006, 3:02 PM
I was looking into Boost service, and after some research found that I live in a Nextel Partner's market (Upstate NY) where people have told me that I would not be able to make outgoing calls. Is this still the case or does Boost now allow outgoing roaming on Partner's towers? Are there any locations that Boost does NOT fully serve on Nextel's network?

I was also told that for those Partner's makets where Boost has debuted, the billing was according to the central time zone, and hence would cause my off peak hours to be from 10pm-8am as opposed to the advertised 9pm-7am. Any truth to that?

Nextel Partners is indeed a sore spot with us at Boost....If you have good covereage with Partners were you are at and in the area you frequent than you will have service....Two-Way will work great and the Cellular may fade in and out, this has been my experience....
The answer to your second question is Yes Nextel partners operates off the Central Time Zone, and this causes us in the Boost Premium a major pain in the ---, Nights and weekends are an hour off ! At this time we do not have control over this...I believe there is some progress being made on the purchase of Partners to Sprint/Nextel but I don't have a time frame on correction of these issues...I would suggest you give the local Nextel Legacy store a call and ask about...
