    Well, I got so sick of Cingular and their shitty ass reception/service that I made the switch over to Nextel. I was planning on doing this for quite sometime. To my surprise the company I work for gets sweet hookups on Nextel (I didnt know this until the sales dood told me)

    So basically what I got was:

    Picked it up for $119.99

    Also got a sweet deal on the rate plan:


    400 Anytime Minutes
    Free Incoming Calls
    Unlimited Nighttime/Weekend
    Unlimited Direct Connects
    Unlimited Text Messages
    Free Internet
    All reg features, CID, Voicemail ETC.

    Plus I am using my old Phone number
    Got this plan for $48.99/mo including Insurance...My company rocks ;)

    Downside: I have to wait for the phone to come in...when NExtel gives out discounts you have to have it shipped directly from the warehouse...should be here tomorrow or Monday...no biggie.

    Anyways, just wanted to gloat. Got a kick ass deal which was unexpected...

    Done. ;)

    eh, the only way I'd get a nextel is if all my friends had them. then I could use the walkie talkie feature.

    NExtel has the best coverage area in Ct.

    It gets very frustrating getting lost signal when you are trying to have a convo...

    I have verizon for my own celly but at work I use Nextel..... I HATE NEXTEL
    1 outta 3 times you call someone you get "trying to locate the nextel user..... then you go right to the voice mail! later on they bitch to me about how I never called them
    then when you go to 2 way someone you get a BRRRRRRRRRRRRRBEEEEEEEEEP "user not available"

    F-in EH! I hate nextel

    to top it all off I was looking into nextels when I first got a cell phone and they wanted 49.99 for their BASIC plan that had almost NO options Im sure its cheaper now but F-in eh for 1/3rd the cost Verizon offered double the options and MUCH MUHC MUCH better phones

    I hate the size of nextels all of them are ugly the one SteveSI just got looks nice but its still BIG!


    p.s I pay 39.99 a month I get 400 anytime mins and unlimited nights and weekends as with NO roaming or LD charges in the US plus Im on the best network in the MD/DC/VA area!

    my cell phone works 98% of the time onlytime it sometimes cuts out is if Im in a underground basement even then when I have friends around my phone is almost always the only one that works

    that's cuz you live in the woods jeff. hell, your driveway isn't even paved. so don't go there. :D

    all of us (sisteve's "crew") have gone to nextel already, so its about time steve. bleep me your DC # :)

    the i730 is nice, but i found its menu system confusing as hell. so, i kept my i90c that i ran over with a gokart :)
    maybe that new one that trinity is talking about will be my next.

    the i730 is pretty thin actually... its half the size of the i95, and like 75% the size of the i90

    clayton- get a nextel. NYC metro to boston coverage = nextel. all the rest are second rate.
    had cingular, so did steve, so did bill, so did eric, and look- we all now have nextel's. See a pattern?

    I live in the woods? ha DC, Annapolis, Waldorf, Baltimore are all within 30 mins of my house so don't go there with me living in the woods =) I happen to think its a great area very country like right around my house but if you go outside that you can hit any major MD city

    BTW our house is the ONLY FRIGGIN HOUSE with a rock driveway within like 5 miles lol..... It pisses me off soooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    my dad wants to do it right like as in laying brick or something like that so in 30 years when he gets around to it...... yeah F it

    I wash my car and within a few mins its dirty again =`(
