There is good and bad about Nextel.
We've been with them for 3 years. We have a small bussines and have 6 phones. We can 2way eachother for free as part of our package, when ever we are in our home footprint. our home foorprint runs from Millwakee to Indy. We also can call anywhere in the foorprint as a local call and no roaming charges.
If you travel to another footprint your 2way won't work, but all your local calls there are free. I pay a fair long distance charge to calls back home then.
They use their own towers, so if there is no signal you are simply out of luck( no roaming).
I pay $79.00 per month for 1000 minutes air time, free 2way, internet, voice mail and something else I can't think of and probably don't use.
Free national long distance is availible.
