    no, but I think they can tell if you put your sim card in a blackberry and try to use it.

    By use of the SIM, probably not. However, I had heard a rumor some time
    back that they were exploring some kind of IMEI identification to help
    detect theft and fraud.

    they can do an IMEI search of the phone and find out which account the sim
    card is registered to.

    my phone was recovered by nextel following a theft by that method; the thief
    put his sim in my phone.

    i think the ultimate answer to the question is that unless you have a stolen phone, there should be nothing to prompt Nextel to find out what type of phone you have.

    Not sure if I agree with that. If you are having phone problems and you call tech support. They would need to know the phone model, software version, etc. If you buy a new phone and you have insurance, there should be some sort of record with nextel of when you bought the phone.

    what i was trying to say is that in my experience unless the phone was stolen, they do not care what phone you have and if you did call and their records indicated you had a different phone than what you were using they would just update their system to show your new phone.
