    Hey, any Nextel gurus or better out there have any info on what is up
    with the network lately? I don't know if it's getting oversold, or
    there is a retune/refreq project in the works or what, but both myself
    and the 4 other people (employees/friends) I gave or recommended
    Nextel to have been experiencing some serious call quality and drop
    call issues. My phone, location, etc. are not to blame here, nothing
    has changed and I've had my share of several years in the cell biz,
    but I seriously am noticing more coverage/call quality & busy channel
    issues lately in Tampa bay and my partners in Orlando are saying the
    same thing...

    Anyone have more solid info on anything regarding this?

    Thanks

    No info, just adding confirmation to your claim. Lately service here sucks.

    I hate to hear that sort of thing because I'm planning to move to Florida in
    another 6 months & switch to Nextel. Up to this point all I'm reading are
    good comments about Nextel in Fl. Does anyone know if there's coverage all
    the way across Alligator alley yet?

    Ditto here on the Orlando area..... in the last 6 months I have noticed a
    significant amount of dropped calls and no service on my phone.
    Additionally, it is not just my phone, it is also my wife and daughters
    phone so I know it is not an equipment issue on our end.

    The same thing is happening here in Northern California. I think they
    have oversold the service once again and existing customers are taking
    the brunt of overcrowding the system.

    I live about 80 miles of Tampa.

    In January I went to a local cellular store and had them bring a Nextel
    phone to my house. I wanted to be sure I had coverage from home. Inside
    the house the phone showed a strong signal.

    Then in May my phone kept showing "No Service". Then it would go in
    service. In and out for weeks. I finally called Nextel. They said Nextel
    was having system problems in Florida. After 2 more weeks, there was no
    improvement. So I called back.

    They opened a ticket and got my cross streets. They said they checked
    things out and according to their maps I am only guaranteed street coverage.
    They said the reason why my service is bad now is because of the spring
    foliage. I informed them that was nice but that doesn't help me.

    Nextel was good about it and allowed me to cancel my contract with paying
    for the terminiation fee.

    I say all this to state that I noticed a significant degradation of service
    in May. It was a significant change from January to May.

    Well, we've had service since 2 years ago Christmas... and about a
    year ago, we noticed that they filled in several long-standing
    coverage holes -- my house and my mom's both got new towers (or
    sectors), though my partner's apartment is still iffy -- he gets
    intermittent RF dropouts... but even when he's got 6 bars and so do
    I, we *still* have DC codec error-burst problems.

    I've been wondering if it's handset incompatibility or damage --
    we've both got i1kplus's, and they're both up to 28.04.04, but, you
    never know...

    I am about to go back on the "file a ticket once a day" plan,
    though.

    Cheers,
