    Whatever....I got the point across dingaling. If you read the whole
    post, posting all the freqs. weren't necessarry.

    Why don't you try to be constructive in your posting for a change.

    I do not post here often, but do try to follow along with what
    others are posting. Im using a v60p and i have always liked verizon they
    just work better in my area then some of the other competition, And yes
    there ptt is not so great i keep telling myself that maybe it will
    improve it has only been 2 weeks. and some days there is really only a
    1-2 sec delay and other days i have a 5-10 sec delay and even no
    service!!!
    You know what ccc1 im man enough to say hey Nextel has a far superior
    ptt service than Vz does and maybe than they ever will... but who
    cares?? i noticed in all your posts all you really say is vz sucks
    Nextel rocks!!! When ever someone gets there panties in a bunch after
    reading one of your posts you acuse them of being afraid of Nextel.. I
    think your posts are funny most of the time because like i said i could
    really care less who anybody else uses i know what works best for me and
    only me...my question is though why are you afraid of VZ???I ask this
    because you did not show up in this group and start talkin shit until
    right before vz was going to release ptt From that point till
    today....just my observation.. so you can call me a vealot and other
    names if you want, but i dont worship verizon or anybody else my wife
    uses nextel for work ,and i have vz as personl phone..

    I should know better than to get inthis discussion, but: Nextel is
    available in the area I work in, but their coverage doesn't reach
    where I live--always though I wanted the PTT thing, and was really
    watching for Verizon ( one of my cell phone carriers) to get it--but
    after I thought about it, the mobile to mobile deal, and N&W thing works
    perfectly and is cheaper, and can't see a big lot of advantage in my
    particular situation, but as others have posted, with the current
    coverage what good is a nextel phone going to do you when you are away
    from a metro area--I have suffered the spider web coverage area in the
    early sprint days, but Sprint has improved especially with the new F&C
    America--Nextel has some big blank spots, you would need an additional
    phone with nextel. There is no doubt that for what nextel does, at
    present, is the best, but its sort of like solar powered devices, if you
    are in the right place its great, but for those of us not in that place,
    at present, verizon usually has adequate cell service and at least a
    rudimentary PTP system..and has others have noted, including myself, I
    have had the (cell one, gte, and now verizon) for years, in my area,
    their coverage,their c/s, straight forwardness, and inovative services
    (here they were the first with N&W, all state coverage, digital, and
    others) were usually, ahead of their competition. They didn't get as
    big as they are by being worse--but I admit they are not perfect, and
    the PTT is the Best current example..but hasn't most every aspect of
    cell service (s) by all carriers improved dramatically over just the
    last few years--I frankly hope that both verzon and nextel and whoever
    else gets so much better that I can't tell who the best is--and I'll bet
    it will.

    Life & cell phones require some compromise

    Since this really has nothing to do with what eiter one of the two
    posters were talking about, it really has little or no accuarcy of
    it's own. And if you thought you were replying to me, that would
    lower the accuracy even more.

    Oh sorry, I forgot, you know it all. You hold the key to everything.
    You must be a master engineer or something. Let me make sure that all
    cellular companies should call you with questions. There, I can sleep
    better now!

    Yes I am a wireless engineer...no, I don't know it all and never claimed
    to, but what were talking about here is elementary and basic, so yes I
    do know what I'm talking about.

    Hope you slept good last night and if you have any further questions or
    have any problems sleeping in the future, be sure to pick up a copy of
    Part 22 or Part 90 of the FCC rules. Makes for great bedtime reading
    and cures insomnia. :-D
