    I have a friend that has a Prepaid Boost Mobile with the Direct
    Connect walkie talkie feature. She states that it only costs her 1.50
    a day to use the direct connect and she can talk all day if she wants
    and only gets charged once. Is this true?

    Reading from another site it was my understanding that you got charged
    the 1.50 each time you made a direct connect and whoever it was that
    initiated the direct connect got charged. Could someone explain to me
    how your charged for the Direct connects?

    She has only had it a week, and says that she is really saving on
    prepaid minutes since she started using the direct connect. She is a
    Novice and has no idea about things like this usually, but she swears
    up and down that it's only 1.50 a day.

    My brother has a Nextel cellphone with Direct connect(monthly
    subscriber with contract)....not a boost mobile. He lives in Florida,
    and I am in Georgia. I was wondering If I got one of these boost
    mobiles would I be able to direct connect with him.

    Thanks for any and all advice you can give me.

    Yes it is only 1.50 a day no matter how many times you use it. And the
    Direct Connect works with Boost and Nextel.

    Though your voice minutes will have limited coverage if in a non-Nextel
    area, like Nextel partners.
    Me I liked the option for internet for only .20 cents a day. And free
    incoming messages.

    I never use Direct Connect but according to the Boost Mobile site your
    friend is right. And according to the FAQ, yes, you can DC your
    brother.
