    Ever since the commercials involving four celebrities using Nextel
    Phones, I should point out that Nextel is trying to spread awareness of
    their Direct Connect System throughout the Entertainment World. Feel
    free to share your thoughts and how celebrities use Direct Connect as
    props on Television Shows. Here are a few "things" that I know of
    regarding about Celebs using Nextel Phones as props:

    Celebrity Mole Hawaii: Stephen Baldwin and Kathy Griffin had to exchange
    their answers through use of Direct Connect. Stephen was inside the
    submarine while Kathy was in the graveyard. Both were using i90c's to
    exchange answers through Direct Connect.

    NYPD Blue: This is the most obvious show that has Dennis Franz utilizing
    a Nextel i90c as a prop. Being a believer of "Hard-Time", his character
    utilizes the i90c to the fullest extent to crack as many cases he can.

    Las Vegas: A relatively new show, we see a security guy looking at the
    monitors. When he spots a "rogue" customer, he then alerts one of his
    cohorts with his trusty i95cl.

    NASCAR: Let's not forget our redneck friends whom nextel is now the title
    sponcer of the former winston cup series and you see Michael Waltrip and
    D.W. using nextels on (then) Inside Winston Cup and also all the mentions
    of nextel even before the final winston cup race

    Amercian Chopper: Paul Sr. using a nextel to get business done (cheap nextel
    plug)

    and I'm sure that there are other shows and places that nextel phones are
    used It's almost turning into a contest like Zippo ran a few years back
    where if you found a movie or play or show with a zippo not on the list.
