Nextel (soon to be Sprint). Only because everyone else I work w/ has one (direct connect). Otherwise, I wouldn't. Signal sucks.

Nextel.

It's a little pricier than other plans, but for the direct connect (as most of the other guys have it), it's worth it for me.

I've had good luck with the signal...better than Voicestream/T-Mobile (which was HORRIBLE when I had it; the fact that the crappy Nokia phone didn't have an external antenna didn't help at all, either).

nextel and verizon. i am ditching verizon as soon as i can come up w/ the extra $200 EARLY CANCELLATION FEE. the wife and i are on a family plan w/ verizon, i think i get better clarity and signal w/ nextel down here in VA, me my wife and i can hardly hear each other about 40% of the damn time. but nextel's text messaging licks the sweat of a dead mans balls. but the gps and DC is great.

Sprint here on Family Plan with Wife. Get 23% business discount/month with unlimited web access/text messaging. Best part is that Sprint is the only company with signal in our town! Our contract is up in October and I expect to get an even better deal to sign on for another 2 years.

I've had Verizon for >5 years, no discounts, no rebates on phones, and no signal in town! Verizon also did something that I really didn't appreciate . . . they "rolled over" my contract each year automatically, thus always put us in an ETF mode if we wanted to drop the contract.

Similar with Cingular (very early on) and later AT&T.

........ the only thing that realy is annoying about NEXTEL for me is when someone alerts me first rather than chirping me I work nights people, when you alert me at 2, 3pm I'm sleeping!!!!! if I'm awake, I'll answer you when you chirp me.



Amen to that!!

Cingular/AT&T it's all about the coverage...Out here I get great coverage with Cingular/AT&T

I don't even think Nextel knows we exist.

What's worse than people alerting rather than chirping (bleeping as I call it) is when they start talking right away on the first bleep!!! DAMN that's annoying. I'll be at work, asleep, in the car, whatever, and I'll hear "yap yap yappity yap" and there's someone blabbing over my damn phone!! Stupid people, learn some Nextel etiquette!

Ditto on the Nextel. I only have it to DC everyone when using the radio would be less than proper, otherwise I'd chuck the the thing off a high building. As for people alerting before chirping, I put the alert volume to 0 and set it to de-alert after 1 minute. Eventually people realize that that won't work anymore.

I have Nextel, service isn't too bad down in VA the DC is great. However I am begining to re-consider this last drive back to MA I had no service for a decent portion of the trip. Makes it tough to drive 9 hours with a few other vehicles and no comms...

Verizon Wireless here. Also it's real helpful if you have more than one Verizon service as well for you can Clump the bills into one and you save some money.

Nextel for now. Besides the three-thirty in the afternoon wake-up alerts, what drives me nuts is when someone DCs you and then talks, and talks, and keeps talking. There's no way to interupt him, I can't change modes while he's talking and the only thing I can do is wait him out or turn off the phone... and its ALWAYS at the absolute worst moment he could beep me at. I used to have sprint back in the late 90's... like everyone else, I switched to use the direct connect feature.

yep, nothing like being at the parents house and the NEXTEL shouts out "Hey, you F'ing whore! What the hell are you doing?" :? Will probably go with Cingular soon.
