    I currently am with Nextel and have an i90c. I also carry a Blackberry
    (957) unit. Lately I have been giving more thought about just getting to
    one device such as the Nextel Blackberry unit.

    My two main concerns are battery life and that frankly my current
    Blackberry coverage (I think that its on Cingular's network) is pretty
    awesome.

    If there are any Nextel Blackberry users out there who would be willing
    to share their experiences I would be grateful.

    Thanks, Scott

    Yeah, I kinda find this strange to. Let me explain. Awhile back I tried
    Cingular's phone service (2 weeks) and in my area they were using AT&T.
    The phone always showed "extended service" or "roaming" (don't recall)
    and the phone service was not great.

    This all said, when I first got a Blackberry it was through my cable
    provider, RCN. They used Cingular's network. When RCN got out of
    providing Blackberry service they referred me to Earthlink. Again, I
    could be wrong, but, I thought that they use Cingular's network as well.

    Is it possible that Cingular has a separate voice and data network? I
    honestly don't know. Then again, I am not 100% certain that I am on
    their network. That said, its pretty rare when I have a coverage issue.

    Re: Nextel Blackberry

    the external antenna on the nextel blackberry is also a whip relative
    to other carriers' models.

    i was in a nextel store yesterday and one of the employees, who seemed
    to have a very solid grasp on their product line, told me that they
    are due to have a new blackberry very soon, probably in january of
    2004.

    supposedly, it WILL have a speakerphone and WILL NOT have an external
    antenna.

    sitting here waiting patiently.
