    I believe it can only be sold to Nextel and Boost customers.

    Or you can unlock the phone and then you can target anyone. There are usually codes online to unlock your phone or you can take it to one of the cell phone stalls in the mall and they can unlock it for a small fee.

    Unlocked cellphone could be used with any provider. If it's said that it's a phone Nextel phone w/o contract, this means you could only use it with other Nextel service contract

    Correct!!
    Nextel is iden technology, there for it should work with Boost (iden technology),Tellus (iden technology)South America Nextel (iden technology).

    An unlocked GSM phone can be used with other GSM carriers, cingular,T-mobile,at%t, mexicos telcel, and more..

    a CDMA unlocked phone can be used with other CDMA carriers, Sprint,Verizon,Cricket,Alltel,and other cdma prepaid phones.
