    Re: Is Nextel *trying* to annoy their customers?

    Well then I agree. I have been with them since 94 and the service has gone
    to Sh*t Fast. I could care less about PTT I just need a phone that works...

    I doubt that the Nextel network is being brought down. They have
    committed to support iDen until quite a few years out. I was a little
    dissapointed when they announced that, since it would seem that the
    Sprint/Nextel merger could have resulted in better service by changing
    to one technology.

    At one point during the summer of 2005 service got bad in Connecticut.
    I was in the service center and they were saying that there was work
    going on to add Sprint PCS to the area Nextel towers that didn't have
    that, so there were some sites that were down. I don't know if there
    was any truth to it or not. Service has gotten back to normal since
    then, maybe even slightly better.

    I personally wonder if some of this is caused by some of their crappy
    phones that trade good transmitter/receivers for smaller packages
    in the process of luring in new customers that want smaller phones..
    I've got an i90c that I get fairly good reception with (not perfect by
    any means), but my sister-in-law's phone (i860 IIRC? -- much smaller
    than my i90c) sitting right next to mine won't get a signal at all
    (or perhaps spotty one-bar) on our front porch where mine can get two+
    bars of signal strength. This leaves me wondering if bigger is actually
    better than slimmer, etc.. Comments?
