yes, 2-way across the country will be up and running in most areas by the end of 2002. Some of you that are having trouble don't forget about once a year you need to get a software upgrade. Other companies you need to about every 3 months.
If you have more than one phone get on www.nextel.com and order the cable for your type of phone and do the upgrades your self. Or you can get the cable through Motorola/iden and I think it is cheaper.
