    Nextel Rocks
    Guest
    Can somebody PLEASE give me at least one good reason why I should switch
    from NexTel to Verizon? Will Verizon ever be able to compare to NexTel in
    sound quality with their PTT. And what gives with the expensive $59.95 per
    mo? They would draw more NexTel customers if their plans were more
    competitive in price. Get a GRIP VZW!

    Check these out. The first plan by VZW compares to the third plan by Nextel
    in the
    Nextel Instant Connect Plans

    Re: One Good Reason?

    If Nextel covers the area you need to use its phones in, there is no
    reason to move. INSIDE Nextel's service area, it's far superior to
    VZW's PTT which is a cluged up mess of data-over-cellular-network
    crap. Trunked radio systems will always work better for PTT.

    However, Nextel across the planet is confined to Nextel's tiny
    footprint, compared to the huge number of systems VZW has bought up
    from all kinds of carriers. VZW works in the country, where I have to
    work. Nextel has no presence there in my area, only cities and
    interstates. 2-3 miles off the interstate and service stops. VZW has
    AMPS analog celular service on a mature cellular system with a large
    footprint in the country IF, as I do, you have a powerful 3W AMPS
    phone to maximize its usefulness. Toy phones on CDMA with 200mw
    peanut whistle transmitters and tiny antennas only work about 2-3
    miles, tops, LESS IN THE TREES. Country towers are 10 miles apart,
    made for the old AMPS carphones.

    May I ask why, other than the walkie talkie novelty playing cop, you
    would want half-duplex, one-sided PTT....especially if UNLIMITED, full
    duplex, Mobile-to-Mobile with cellular privacy is available at less
    than half price?

    I alert this because in Charleston, SC, Alltel is offering a plan with
    700 anytime minutes in SC and NC to phones, UNLIMITED M2M between
    Alltel phones inside SC/NC service area, free nationwide long
    distance, 100 anytime minutes in all 50 states for traveling, all the
    usual 3way, call waiting, call forwarding, voicemail, no answer
    transfer, etc., for only $39.95/mo! That's a helluva deal if you use
    Alltel phones between your key people on M2M all day. Sure a better
    deal than PTT on Nextel which is very pricey in comparison!

    The stock market analysts are telling us to all hang onto our wallets
    UNTIL number portability causes them all to start cutting each others'
    throats in pricing and plans, trying to prevent the churning they all
    deserve. These analysts are warning the stockholders to expect a big
    revenue cut because of the promotions. I agree.....Sit tight until
    number portability starts the bidding wars sure to follow before
    deciding on any new purchases of service or equipment......

    3600 planes with transponders are burning 8-10 million
    gallons of kerosene per hour over the USA. R-12 car air
    conditioners are responsible for the ozone hole, right?
