    Something that no one has seemed to mention, is that Nextel doesn't
    share thier network with anyone else. Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, Cingular,
    T-mobile they all share towers with like systems. Sprint and Verizon
    both have CDMA networks, AT&T, T-mobile work on the GSM for thier
    current digital network. Take that into account when you're comparing
    network size. Nextel and Verizon are rated the same for customer
    service, but my experience has been better with Nextel than with
    Verizon.

    The same way industry magazines offer objective content... even though
    they rely upon the companies within the industry to feed their
    advertising revenue. Such as Car & Driver... PC Magazine, etc...

    Even though VZW is a customer of Telephia's, so are the other carriers,
    too.

    ALL major carriers are their customers. Level playing field and all

    3600 planes with transponders are burning 8-10 million
    gallons of kerosene per hour over the USA. R-12 car air

    Verizon has superior walkie-talkie service? Does Verizon have any sense =

    This helps prove my theory that most cell companies (and most companies =

    Your case would carry more weight if you didn't do stupid things like
    saying "Hay everyone." You might as well say "Straw everyone." Either way,
    you're an imbecile.
