I have a company and I have a life. I have both Nextel and Verizon for one simple reason; Nextel is very great with the DIRECT CONNECT and ok with the cellular service but Verizon is way better than Nextel when it comes to receiving and placing a cellular call. With Verizons Dig. @ Anlg service,you can go almost anywhere in the U.S. and receive service with Verizon but with Nextel its very limited. Nextel phones are way better in quality but Verizon cellular service is better than Nextel. I never miss an incoming call with Verizon and with Nextel I miss around 30% of the calls and thats with the antenna up and I live in the Chicagoland area where Nextel is suppose to be strong.

well nextel is trying to expand their footprint and capacity.
tim spoke yesterday that he isnt affraid to have his network be like verizon's... they are going to build a lot of cell sites over the next 3 years.

i know nextel is doing its very best for their network becuase last year the network quality is number 2 behind verizon wireless. thats pretty good becuase you said thye lack coverage sometimes. now if nextel continues to deploy 2200 plus cell sites per year plus that 1300 tower deal with clear channel coverage and capacity will improve drasticly. the 6:1 would come into play also..
