    Anybody have any idea how DC between countries is billed? Any
    additional charges, or is it similar to DCing someone in another
    province?

    DC charges between countries

    We as agents have been told that the charges would be .20 per minute - and for people who know about using the dc nationwide if you dont have the 10.00 flat fee added, its .10 per minute per parcipant

    We were told we can NOT D/C with Telus, just with Nextel (and Nextel
    Partners) phones that are on (roaming of sorts) on that network.

    Who is we?

    I'm in Canada on TELUS, and I was able to DC to one of my coworkers in
    Nextel.

    Nextel US phones can DC with Telus and Nextel International phones in
    Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, and Argentina directly, also with Mexico
    later this summer. Roamning in all countries works, as well as emial and web
    access. DC between Nextel International and Telus directly is not up, maybe
    later.

    Read the press release on the Nextel web site.

    Press release:
    =================

    Nextel Announces Another Industry First for Walkie-Talkie
    Technology
    RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 4, 2004--Nextel
    Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXTL):

    a.. Nextel Launches World's Largest Multinational
    Walkie-Talkie Service through Partnership with NII Holdings and TELUS
    Mobility

    b.. Push To Talk(SM) and Data Services Are Now Available to
    Nextel Customers between the United States, Brazil, Argentina and Peru as
    well as between the United States and Canada

    c.. Mexico Availability Slated for Summer
    Nextel Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTL), in partnership with
    NII Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: NIHD) and TELUS Mobility, a subsidiary of TELUS
    Corporation (TSX: T, T.A; NYSE: TU), today announced the availability of
    International Direct Connect(SM) walkie-talkie service. This service
    provides under-a-second digital walkie-talkie connections between the United
    States, Brazil, Argentina and Peru as well as between the United States and
    Canada. Nextel U.S. subscribers traveling in these countries can now also
    benefit from data services, including BlackBerry(R) and mobile e-mail,
    two-way messaging and wireless Web access. Nextel and NII Holdings also plan
    to launch International Direct Connect service in Mexico this summer.

    "Nextel is taking instant walkie-talkie service beyond
    international borders with ranges of 7,000 miles. International Direct
    Connect is nothing short of a wireless industry milestone," said Tom Kelly,
    executive vice president and COO, Nextel. "International Direct Connect
    walkie-talkie service is especially appealing to our customers who conduct
    cross-border business in critical regions such as Canada, which is the
    United States' largest trading partner, in industries such as
    transportation, financial services and manufacturing. It is also of
    particular interest to our Spanish-speaking subscribers with ties to Latin
    America."

    International Direct Connect walkie-talkie service provides the
    same exceptional performance as Nextel's Nationwide Direct Connect( SM)
    walkie-talkie service with connection speeds under one second. It is an
    expansion of Nextel's current coverage in northern Baja California, Mexico,
    which launched with NII Holdings in September 2003, making Nextel the only
    cellular provider in the United States to offer cross-border walkie-talkie
    service. In 1992, Nextel was the first cellular service provider in the
    United States to offer digital walkie-talkie service.

    With International Direct Connect walkie-talkie service, Nextel
    subscribers can seamlessly send and receive walkie-talkie calls:

    a.. in the United States, Brazil, Argentina and Peru -
    wherever Nextel or NII Holdings has coverage - with Nextel or NII Holdings
    subscribers, or

    b.. in the United States or Canada - wherever Nextel or TELUS
    Mobility has coverage - with Nextel or TELUS Mobility subscribers.
    Nextel subscribers can now also use select data services:

    a.. in the United States, Brazil, Argentina and Peru -
    wherever Nextel or NII Holdings has coverage - with other Nextel
    subscribers, or

    b.. in the United States or Canada - wherever Nextel or TELUS
    Mobility has coverage - with Nextel or TELUS Mobility subscribers.
    For example, a Nextel subscriber working remotely in Brazil can
    now have a walkie-talkie conversation with a Nextel subscriber visiting an
    office in Argentina. Or a Nextel subscriber living in the United States can
    send and receive messages on their Nextel BlackBerry while visiting Canada.

    Additionally, NII Holdings subscribers can now send and receive
    walkie-talkie calls with NII Holdings or Nextel subscribers in NII coverage
    areas in Brazil, Argentina and Peru or in Nextel coverage areas. TELUS
    Mobility subscribers can send and receive walkie-talkie calls and select
    data services with TELUS Mobility or Nextel subscribers anywhere in TELUS
    Mobility or Nextel coverage areas. Subscribers of Nextel, NII Holdings and
    TELUS Mobility can already send and receive regular cellular calls in each
    other's coverage areas (international calling activation may apply).

    More than 90 percent of Nextel customers have enabled Nationwide
    Direct Connect walkie-talkie service on their accounts. Nationwide Direct
    Connect, which has been available in all markets served by Nextel and Nextel
    Partners for almost a year, allows users to connect coast-to-coast in under
    one second.

    Nextel, NII Holdings and TELUS Mobility operate on Motorola's
    iDEN (integrated Digital Enhanced Network) technology, which provides
    superior digital voice quality, security, reception and reliability.

    So they claim. However, that didn't stop me from having a conversation
    with some coworkers in Texas who use Nextel. I'm a TELUS user myself.

    If anyone really wants, drop me an email and I'll DC you and see if it
    works. I suspect that this functionality is being rolled out and may or
    may not be available in all areas yet.

    I don't think you quite understood what I said.

    A Telus user who is located in Canada cannot yet DC an NII customer located
    in one of the NII countries: Brazil, Argentina, Peru, or Mexico. An NII
    customer located in one of the four NII countries mentioned cannot DC a
    Telus customer located in Canada.

    NII is the separate company part owned by Nextel US (NCI) that covers south
    of the US border.

    If you are a Telus customer you can certainly DC either US customers located
    in the US or Canada, OR Telus customers located in Canada or the US. That
    has nothing to do with NII customers.
