My problems with nextel did not stop when I canceled my service. I will get to the problems with the service. When I went to get a new phone a day before my contract expired, I of course wanted to keep my number. So as I went to get my Cingular phone (highly recommended), I had the old number switched to my new number. Today, I get in the mail my nextel statement for the month with a $200 early termination even though I had not canceled my service, but had simply got a new phone and switched my number over. This was on icing on the cake after 2 years of absolutely amazingy bad service from nextel. In my town, not a small town by any means, there are very few places that have any service. In the largest subdivision, you cannot get service anywhere. I constantly get comments from people trying to reach me that get the classic nextel line...Please hold while the nextel subscriber you are trying to reach is located. Most of the time I would not even recieve incoming calls, calls would go straight to my voice mail. Not only would I not get the calls, but often I would not even get the voice mails until days or even weeks later. When I did actually take calls (and call out), I cannot count the number of times I've had my call dropped. I recieved so many different error messages sometimes I wonder if they just spend all their time at nextel thinking of different error messages to program into their phones. That brings me to the selling point of nextel, the famed and well-loved direct connect feature. This is an absolute joke. Direct connect only works MAYBE half the time I tried to use it. Even then, in the middle of the conversation I would be greeted by the loud beep of my phone telling me I wont be talking to that person anymore. Of course, I would expect nothing less from the nextel network. Text messaging with nextel is next to impossible. If it did not take hours to send or recieve a message, it took days, or maybe didn't even come at all. The internet access was fine, it the rare instance that it worked. Of course, when you don't have service, you don't get the internet access either. I was constantly getting the message "network not available". Calling and trying to complain to nextel is futile. Trying to get through to customer service takes forever and once you get through they do nothing. My experience with nextel has been nothing short of a disaster and I write this trying to warn anyone considering nextel. Stick with Verizon or Cingular and you will be much happier in the end. Don't make the same mistake I did. Less

Great color phone for Nextel users

I've been a Nextel customer for years for both business and personal use. I've used almost all lines of phones. The i95cl was my favorite until i830 came along.

I've been a Nextel customer for years for both business and personal use. I've used almost all lines of phones. The i95cl was my favorite until i830 came along. The i95 is good for casual and especially heavy business users. The color LCD screen is huge compared to i730 and i830. Apparently Nextel had to reduce screen size in order to reduce phone size. That is one thing I miss in i830. I never had a problem with i95 size since it weighs about 5 oz. Great phone and I could not believe Nextel would discontinue it. *Note: I have an extra i95 for sale. It was my personal phone and in very good condition with some scratches. It is fully operational, travel charger and holster, shipping in USA included for flat $120.00. I will accept paypal only. Please email me if interested at leel1@netscape.com. Less

Amazing.

I had this phone for a little over a year and it's been my fave so far... Good navigation, convenient volume and speakerphone... it is a tank but really durable! Uses a SIM card so you can switch from one phone to another with lots of ease.

Great phone alot better then sprint! Setting it up with the 800 # Well let's say pack a LUNCH! It took me 4 hours on the phone, and six different people to get connected! They need alot of work on that! After all said and done great phone, great coverage, walkie talkie feature breaks up now and then, but is really quick talking back and forth.No alarm clock? would be nice! if had to activate again would take it to a nextel dealer to do it instead of calling it in! nice pic on colored screen, games look nice.thinking of an upgrade to the i730, GPS but no alarm clock? a full feature phone with GPS to take you anywhere but NO alarm clock to wake you up when your there? I go camping and 4 wheeling where the GPS would come in handy and so would the ALARM CLOCK! think they might get the message and make it a downloadable feature! HOPE THIS HELPS! Less

first, this phone feels huge. I carry it in my pocket every day, but I wish it was half as thick. That said, I've had the phone for a little more than a year and it works perfectly. I've dropped it several times, left it in a hot car, etc and never had a problem. I did buy a second battery when I purchased the phone, and one of the two batteries died after about a year. I just charge it every 36 hours or so and I've usually got plenty of power. I use the Java apps, I use their browser, mostly to check movies, and I use it with a short cable to connect to my iPaq. Everything works great. But it still feels like a brick -- I heard a comedian say that cell phones are the only thing men will brag about theirs being smaller... Less

I have owned several phones with many wireless service providers. Nextel is a million miles ahead of the rest. The Direct Connect feature is easy to use and instant, there are NO ROAMING charges at all, prices are very reasonable, phones are rugged, wireless web and email functions are easy to use and fast, battery holds charge for 2 or more days on this COLOR phone (that is some kind of miracle as other color phone I have had have to be charged at least once a day), and it is comfortable to hold and use. The blue lighted buttons are cool and easy to use in the dark and the full color display is just excellent with many downloadable wallpapers, ring tones, and java applications. The speaker phone is crystal clear as is the push to talk fuctionality. The customer service department is fast, polite and effective. I have never had a phone or service that is so pleasing and easy to use overall. I also looked at bringing several of my family member's cell numbers to Nextel, and found out they had the lowest by far of any cell phone companies complaints about transferring phone numbers! Definitely a keeper and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ANYONE! Less

I have this phone for about 10 months. The calls are clear in many places where I can't get my other service to work. I have dropped it numerous times on our concrete driveway and never had a problem other than a few scratches from the impact. A few weeks ago I even dropped it in our pool. As it stopped working, I called a local authorized repair shop and they told me it could not be repaired. To save the $200 they wanted to charge me for a new phone and sign up to a new contract, I open it up and dried it well and a couple of days later it was working as before. This is the best phone I ever had! Less
