    what did you do with your old phone number? Why didn't you just
    transfer your old number to your new phone?

    Would your local dealer be able to get the right area code for you?
    I don't understand why you didn't just get the new phone from your
    local rep instead of going to Nextels website?

    Why don't you take it to the Nextel dealer, and get THEM to
    handle it. You should have bought it from there anyway...

    I certainly don't think you will have less frustration if you get a phone
    from "shint"
