    There is a reason why I'm considering a Nextel Phone for myself--to
    simply give certain supervisors more flexibility in contacting me if
    they need to "chastise" me for any reason or I can contact them if I
    have any issues that I need to bring up without having to use my
    company's Old School i1100 Candybar Nextel Phones. Now I would like
    your opinions on the following phones:

    i90c
    * Flip-Phone
    * No Color Screen
    * J2ME Compliant
    * External Caller ID
    * "Silent Connect" option

    i95cl
    * GIF 89a-quality Color Screen
    * Flip-Phone
    * J2ME Compliant
    * External Caller ID
    * "Silent Connect" Option
    * Bulky compared to the i90c and the i730

    i730
    * 16-Bit Color
    * Flip-Phone
    * J2ME Compliant
    * External Caller ID
    * "Silent Connect" Option
    * GPS Enabled
    * GPS might require Third-Party Monthly Service

    Any thoughts on what Nextel iDEN Phone I should deploy? Should I go for
    a "Candy-Bar" Nextel Phone if by all means possible or should I go for a
    Clamshell Nextel Phone instead?

    "Candy-Bar" Phone--A Nextel Phone that does not "flip", it resembles a
    Landline Phone and/or an old-school radio.

    "Clamshell" Phone is classified as a Nextel Phone that CAN flip, and
    it's pricier than Candy-Bar Phones.

    P.S. If any of you have any GPS-Enabled Nextel iDEN Phones (It's
    worthless for me to contact an Office Worker at Nextel because time is
    NOT on my side here) with GPS-Capability, is there a monthly and/or
    one-time flat charge for GPS "things"? Also, if there is a cost, how
    much does this "GPS Thing" cost? What is GPS actually used for? Reason
    why I'm concerned is because I have Mapping Software on my PDA and I
    want to know if it's worth it for me to get a GPS-enabled Nextel iDEN
    Phone or not while I have Rand McNally StreetFinder for my Handheld.....

    Oh, I forgot the i60...basically a clone of the i90c Clamshell Phone,
    BUT with NO External Caller ID--big minus.

    Perhaps if I'm gonna "Go Nextel", maybe I should start with an i730?

    Other than being a clamshell, the i60 is nothing like the i90. Even the
    displays are different.

    Having owned a few of these phones over the last few years (i1000+,
    i700+, i55sr, i85s, i90c, i730) -- It all depends on what you want, but
    if you like expensive toys, get the i730.

    If not, then get the i90c if you prefer a flip or the i55sr if you
    prefer a non-flip, or if you're clumsy with the phone.

    I have no experience with the new i730, though the case seems somewhat
    flimsy to me. I have a lot of experience with both the i90 and the
    i95 and I can tell you that the i90 is superior. It is smaller, more
    durable, and is void of all the games and other garbage that clutter
    up the menu screens

    It's priced for the lower end consumer market.
