    Hello everyone,

    I recently purchased (2) i710's and I'm having the same problem(s) with
    both units. I will try to explain as best as I can.

    On several occasions I have tried to make phone calls and I get a
    rapid busy signal type sound. The signal strength bars are all showing
    and there are no error messages displayed. I then try to Direct Connect
    someone and I get that loud tone and a "unavailable" message. If I call
    my Nextel from a "land-line" I get the "Please hold while the Nextel
    subscriber you are trying to reach is located". I then shut the unit
    off and turn it back on and everything is fine. I've had these units
    checked at my local Nextel Service Center 3 times so far! The first
    time they did a 'software upgrade". That solved the problem for about 2
    hours and it happened again. The second time they did something that
    sounded like an "antenna patch"? That lasted a whole 24 hours and then
    they acted up again. The 3RD TIME the said they would "swap out" the
    units for 2 new ones. OK fine. Guess what... yep, same problems again.
    Each time the tech wizards (LOL) there said there are no problems
    reported in my area (South Suburbs of Chicago). Customer service has
    been pretty much useless with helping my problem. I've been a "valued"
    customer as they put it for almost 4 years and spend close to $175
    bucks a month with these guys and all they can say is "We apologize for
    the problems you are having". UUUGGGHHH!!!!!

    Has anyone else had similar problems with these units? Please let me
    know. And Thanks for allowing me to blow off a little steam here.

    Re: i710 Problems

    I doubt this is a phone problem. Sounds more like network congestion to me.

    Actually I have and I called my local nextel store and they said they
    would swap it out for me. My 710 start squeeling like a modem then I
    have to power cycle it. I did have 730 but they were worse.

    Re: i710 Problems


    I've been having the same problems since I switched to I50sx from the
    old "indestructable bricks" (i500 which worked flawlessly.) They tried
    to troubleshoot but their final solution was to try a new phone. The
    company I work for purchased the i710 and I was okay for a few months
    and then the problems came up again. The amazing thing is the time at
    which the problem seems to occur. I would be talking to a co-worker
    via directconnect, let go of the button, not hear a reply for ten
    seconds, and VIOLA! I am dead in water! No phone or direct connect.
    A whole minute must be dedicated to resetting my phone. And here's the
    good part: the other Nextels in the building still work, just not mine.
    I gave up on the useless customer support and simply wait until I can
    drop Nextel. For right now...the company pays and it's free for me.
