    Thanks for the informative link, MarkF. That was a very interesting =
    video clip, which should shut some people up. I say "some" because some =
    people are too dumb to keep their mouths shut.

    Re: NEXTEL vs Verizon PTT

    why would anyone jump to a new PTT provider, when 99% of the people with PTT
    are using nextel? Plus do you think PTT will work cross network in the
    future?

    Re: NEXTEL vs Verizon PTT

    The only reason to jump to a new provider for DC is if one doesn't
    require the need for a push to talk business use or just needs to use
    it intra-business wise or for family use. Also Sprint, I believe has a
    better footprint than nextel....in fact i believe just about every
    carrier has a better footprint than nextel. Nextel needs serious
    competition to open their eyes so that they will be more competitive.

    Re: NEXTEL vs Verizon PTT

    There is a fine print between Nextel, Sprint, and Verizon.

    Verizon runs under a CDMA Network--it chews up your Cell Minutes while
    you are browsing through the web, according to the video, you have to
    wait about 12 seconds before you even communicate through PTT....Very
    questionable reason why Solo CDMA is slow.... Also keep in mind that
    Verizon is a Tri-Mode Provider as well, so for the best results, you
    will need a Tri-Mode Phone that supports AMPS, CDMA, and PCS.

    Sprint runs under an all-digital PCS System but is just as fast as
    Nextel (rumored). The only thing you should keep in mind is that with
    Sprint's Web Services, it will also chew up your Voice Minutes, so you
    have to choose your options carefully. I am unsure how Sprint's
    Walkie-Talkie features work, though. Sprint's two band frequencies are
    CDMA and PCS, primarily PCS.

    The guy that he was testing Nextel's Direct Connect Goodies is with the
    Clamshell i730 and the Candy-Bar i205. It's pretty instant, especially
    when you need to alert someone of a missing homework or something. Keep
    in mind that Verizon, Sprint, and Nextel runs under different protocols,
    meaning that the speed and the quality of Cellular and Push-To-Talk will
    vary. Sprint runs under Dual-Band, All-Digital PCS, Verizon runs under
    a Tri-Mode, Dual-Band CDMA and AMPS, and Nextel runs under Motorola
    iDEN, which is a foundation of many Cellular Telephone Protocols, and
    Mobile Web Protocols in one provider.

    So Protocol Awareness should be a buying factor IMO, but you have to be
    aware that you if you want Push-To-Talk, you will need to look inside
    each of the service protocols (Verizon's three-mode, two-band
    CDMA/AMPS/PCS Network, Sprint's All-Digital, Dual-Band CDMA/PCS, and
    Nextel's iDEN, a blend of 5-6 cellular protocols in one) before you make
    a final decision. For urgency issues, you definitely should consider
    getting a Nextel Phone, since iDEN was made for urgency and productivity.

    These adverse factors affect a buying decision:

    * Price
    * Push-To-Talk Instancy
    * Features
    * Selection of Phones
    * Fancy "Doo-Dads"

    I don't know what the order of what affects your buying decision is, but
    feel free to debate. Many college students at DeVry just simply
    overlook (especially myself in the past) the usefulness of a Nextel
    Phone, and it's pretty much a handy tool so that instructors can
    actually tell you via DirectConnect what you have missed out on, etc.

    With homework urgency in mind, what do you guys think should college
    students get assuming that a professor has a Nextel Phone "armed"?
