Direct connect question

Okay, I'm looking to switching carriers after my VZW contract ends this november. It's got to be pretty bad when I work for these people and want to change. Anyway, direct connect minutes, how do they apply? the plans show 250 Direct Connect minutes, does that mean every time key the mike to talk to another Nextel person, it rounds up to a full minute, even if you talk like 5 seconds?

that's great! I want to a share plan with just me and another family member and the 250 DC minutes per phone would prob be sufficient per month for us. Now, are those minutes shared too? If one phone uses like 100 DC minutes and the other uses 300, would it be able to borrow DC minutes from the other phone?

No each phone would have 250 DC minutes, now the new line would not add on any talk minutes (you would have to share the minutes on the main line you bought) but every line you add on is designated it's own 250 DC minutes

So if you bought the 39.99 + 15.00 add on line team share line
400 minutes for the both of you, 250 DC minutes each. unlimited N&W for both phones.

Dyingunman is incorrect. You would share the DC minutes between the lines.

No his response was to your post on the share plan stating each phone receives 250 DC minutes. That is true, but the DC minutes are pooled, just like the cell minutes.

I was wondering, because I looked at the website again and it did lead me to believe the DC minutes were pooled.
