    There is a coverage map on the nextel site:

    http://nextel.com/services/coverage/index.shtml

    It doesn't have a lot of pretty colors on it, and you have to actually
    dig into it, but it provides pretty detailed maps of their network coverage.

    Re: Why is Nextel the only national carrier to not have a national

    I appreciate the help... but I would need to know the zip codes of every
    area I plan to travel to. And, well... I don't. I don't know if I'm a
    below average consumer, but I'm not all that excited about having to
    research 20+ zip codes so I can check whether or not Nextel provides
    service there when it would appear that all the other carriers show
    their coverage in the form of a national coverage map. It somewhat
    limits the amount I can research them as a carrier in comparison to
    their competition. For me, that was enough to dissuade me from looking
    further into their service. I'd rather not have to do more work than I
    need to.

    "I'd rather not have to do more work than I need to."

    I guess following directions fits under this too as the site says:

    Select a city below OR enter your ZIP Code:

    Some of the places I visit are not cities. Nor do they show near the
    areas I would think they would be near.
