    I had heard months ago, that the plan was to be able to connect to other
    systems like NEXTEL and Verizon, but never seen anything on it. You
    would think that if it was going to happen, there would be a big pres
    release.

    As I said, when it's working, it's great, but at $35/ month for two
    phones, and the limited number of people that have it, it's not cost
    effective for me yet. If I could connect with NEXTEL, that would be a
    differant story.

    Anyone have any more info on this?

    The reason that Verizon couldn't connect with Nextel is because they are
    too slow. Their average connection time is about 10 to 15 seconds then
    the transmission time is about 8. Sprints is much faster. As far as a
    press release...Sprint didn't put out a press release on the Ready Link
    until it was already out on the market.
