    yes, hypr69 is correct. The unlocked Razr uses GSM technology but Nextel uses iDEN which is completely different and not compatible. Hope this helps!

    Here's something weird. Buddy of mine is using I930 with AT&T service. Right on his I930 screen, well at the corner of inside screen, it says at&t. I was curious about it so I asked him if I could use his phone & called my own cell. phone from his & it actually works.
    As far as 2 different net-work goes, doesn't "IDEN" stand for "Intergrated Digital Enhance Network"? I thought the idea of having a "intergrated" system, although locked, is that the phone in itself has the capability to work with other system... I looked up IDEN & bunch of stuff came up. One website actually lists which system it can work with...

    Yes, the i930 is both GSM and iDEN, LOOK HERE. BUT it does not have the 850mhz GSM band, so it wouldn't work very well in some parts of the USA. Not all areas in the states are on 1900mhz.
