Nextell Informative - Nextell coverage - cell phones coverage

Review by mr.e on 2007-03-27
I was informed that sprint which always had bad coverage in the washington d.c. area now merged with nextell and the nextell coverage is just as bad as sprint? i talked to a nextell rep. and told him to check my phone records any call that he see's that i had made at least 3 to 4 times within a 2 min. period is a dropped call that i had to remake. remind u for ever time u make a hook up it cost u 1 minuite of time which is deducted from your service time. so a call that should have taken maby 3 min. of my peak time to compleate took approx. 5 to 6 min. i wonder why they cant get the service right but let me be over my bill by as much as 1 to 2 days and they sure know how to cut your service off... i have had nextell for over 6 yrs and know since the merger with sprint they suck just a bad. oh the good thing is the rep. did say that sprint has put billions into the service know so they make a hybird phone which is sprint phone and nextell walkie talkie that they will let u try free for 30 days, then LOCK YOU INTO ANOTHER 2 YEAR CONTRACT because it's so much better now. I asked them if it's so much better then just change the phone to the new one and forget about the NEW 2 YEAR CONTRACT since we are haveing so much trouble with nextell since the merger with sprint.

The business I work with has 10 Sprint lines and two Nextel lines. We work in the entire DC area. There's never been a coverage problem except in a very few places. I also looked at the new hybrid phone and decided it wasn't worth it. It will walkie-talkie with Nextel but not Sprint phones.

very good but remember that spint took over nextell. i had sprint serveral years ago and service was extremely poor. i love to fish, you cant get coverage on the chesapeake bay pass a 1/4 mile off shore nextell and verison u could. take your sprint phone to the N.E. or S.E. side of washington d.c. or to most places in Prince Georges County and then tell me how your service holds up. please dont get into trouble if you go fishing on the bay.
