    Well it has been about 2 1/2 weeks since Verizon implemented their PTT. How
    are the Verizon customers handling the delay?

    Re: NexTel vs Verizon

    My sister-in-law purchased 4 phones with PTT for her family (she was an
    existing verizon user). I am a nextel user and I tried to get her to change
    to nextel since it has proven good performance in eastern Massachusetts.
    She brought the v60p's over my house to show me the phones. She could not
    get the PTT to work with the phones in the same room. Once she was home in
    her house she still had trouble. She brought them all back the next day and
    reactivated her prior phones. She now plans to switch to Nextel in a week
    or two.

    My impression is that VZW's PTT works about as well as Nextel's regular
    phone service does most everywhere else (for the sarcasm impaired, that
    means not very well). But what's your point anyways? You could have just
    bought a cell with a speaker phone if you wanted to share your calls with
    (and annoy) everyone else around you, and it would have worked in a lot more
    places too.

    For many business situations, NexTel may very well make sense (I've used
    under those circumstances myself). But any consumer who buys it without a
    buiness need is an idiot in my book. "Oooh. It beeps every time I press the
    button! Then I just talk really loud!"

    now now Giambi vealot... this is America and we have choices here.
    Someone can purchase a Nextel phone if they feel like it, they dont have
    to answer to losers such as yourself who feel stipulations need to be
    made. They are not idiots, Get a life. Sorry vzn's ptt sucks and your
    feeling small, like the other vealots, but that is no reason to belittle
    another wireless company that can get calls and ptt right. There are
    leaders and saddly in vzn's case sorry fat cat followers. Seems the
    only "idiot" is you and your grandstanding.

    How did the blackout affect the people?

    Fact: Verizon towers overloaded almost immediately and had network
    congestion for 4 hours after the power went out. Switches and trunks
    were fine, as were about 95-98% of the towers throughout the whole
    ordeal. people were able to use their phones after the initial rush
    and in no sense was the network ever comprimised during the situation.
    This was reported on many boards and by some newspapers.

    Fact: Nextel PTT worked great during the first 5 minutes or so of the
    blackout and then subsequently started dropping as much as 95% of PTT
    calls soon thereafter. Towers started going offline as little as 4
    hours into the ordeal. People on the nextel forums on boards (hofo and
    wa) were reporting that Nextel PTT and service wasn't restored in some
    areas until 3 days after power was restored.


    I'm not advocating one over the other, but please get your facts
    straight

    The guy on TV is still talking to himself, with no answer. The
    only time my Nextel DC acts like that ad is when I'm WAY out in the
    woods at the edge of the Parish. Deep in the country where you start
    to hear banjo music playing in the background...
