    Hey People ,

    I was looking at a Friends Sprint Phone the Other Day and
    Admiring The Built in Web Browser , He Brought up Pages that Was like
    looking at a Computer Screen , All The Graphics , Links Etc..... It
    was Great , Like a Mini Computer . Why is Nextel So Far Behind Still
    Useing Text Base Web Browsing ? . I called Nextels Web Services and a
    Rep Told me All i had to Do was Upgrade My Software on my I95 and My
    Browser would be a graphical interface like the sprint . Well i tried
    to upgrade the software and followed all the instructions but it just
    doesnt seem to work any way i try , It shows that i purchased for free
    the latest upgrade software But when i get to the last part where it
    shows me the newly purchased software to send to the phone , nothings
    listed Sheeesh ,Did This 3 Times While hooked to the Cable. What a
    nightmare working with Nextels Web Sight . Today i Talked to an
    Authorized dealer who said it wouldn't have mattered anyway , the Web
    Services guy doesn't know what hes talking about , The nextel phones
    cant go beyond the Text Interface . Does anyone know of anyway to
    update the Browser To a graphical interface ? , can it be done ? And
    Why the Hell is Nextels Own People so Stupid giving such mis-informed
    Information . Very Discouraging Paying Over 70 Bucks a month , Tied in
    for a 2 year Contract for a Phone that is Completely blown away by
    this Crappy little Sprint Phone , At least in the Web Browser Dept. ,
    Thanks For Any Help..............Pete

    I have the I95 too I just got it so I would like to know too. I do not have
    the web on it. My dealer said something if I get the web I do have to do
    some downloads but I did not ask about if it was still text.

    I Find it Funny He Sais Some Pictures Work Good LOL , NO Pictures Work
    on Web Sights with this Text Based Nextel Phone , The Guy Has No idea
    what he's talking about . I guess we're Outa Luck , If these Phones
    We're Capable of Graphics it would be Big News , My Dealer Knows what
    he's Talking About and i saw him Today . He Said Nextel specializes in
    the Radio so They Give no Attention to Web Interface , Oh Well , Maybe
    Next Model will change Things....Save Your Money LOL , Pete

    What you need to do is get packet streem gold for like $55 a month and you
    can download a HTTP Web Browser program to the phone and it'll run out of
    the java apps. I believe the websites will look the same as they do on a
    computer. You also connect at like 56k if you have a laptop or something you
    want to use. It's a fast internet connection wirelessly.

    If $55 is too much they have like a $10 and a $20 plan with a limited amount
    of bandwith. Look it up at the nextel website.

    Well Finally Found what we need for Anyone Who Wants It , Go To
    http://www.idenupdate.com/DRHM/servl...ascending=true

    And Grab Web Viewer , Everythings Explained in the Description , Not
    Bad For 20 Bucks but you do need a Total Connect Package as well , It
    Works Great , Brings Up Pages Just Like on Your Pc and I Can get
    Attachments sent to me on my Yahoo Mail Account . Unreal Though , This
    is right on Nextels Sight and There Own People in Wireless Services
    Are Clueless....Sheeeesh..........Enjoy.........Pete
