    Ok, I've just come back from two weeks in Israel, and it works.

    Before you leave, you must have customer service activate your phone
    for international service (ie: roaming), but presuming you have an "i"
    phone listed on the Nextel site, it works fine.

    My handset showed the service provider as NIDS, which appears to be
    the roaming portion of the IDEN provider there.

    People calling your domestic U.S. number will ring through to your
    handset in Israel. Outbound calls are Israel-local (as if you were
    dialling from a landline there), and U.S. domestic calls can be made
    by adding the + (hold down 0 for 1 second) and dialling as usual. I
    did not try international dialling to third countries.

    Dispatch and packet data services were restricted. One-way text
    messages were delivered. Voicemail notification was delivered.

    If there are any other questions, please post a followup.

    Were you able to try DC?

    Direct Connect (DC), aka dispatch, was restricted when I came up on
    the network, so I was not able to use it (not locally, nor back to the
    States).
