    Geez, Bomb, you need to get out more. There aren't any "buildings"
    like you city boys are used to out in Montana. That's why they call
    it "Big Sky Country". Iridium works in fiberglass boats and wooden
    houses....

    3600 planes with transponders are burning 8-10 million
    gallons of kerosene per hour over the USA. R-12 car air
    conditioners are responsible for the ozone hole, right?

    LOL, so all of the buildings in "big sky country" are fiberglass or
    wood? What about your favorite wal-mart... but maybe SPCS would pick
    up there LOL...

    LOL Give me a fucking break. Nextel has too much of a following.
    Verizon only has one stinking phone for PTT and hardly anyone has the
    service anyway. Who the fuck are you going to talk to, yourself?

    Nextel has many corporations already using the service and they're
    most likely going to stay with them. Unless Verizon gets their shit
    together and start offering a better phone selection, better pricing
    and offer true PTT not Push, then wait to talk.

    Sorry but Nextel will be around a lot longer than most of you think.

    Look at the Nextel maps posted on www.nextel.com. There is in fact coverage
    in SD, and ND for that matter.
    1. Go to www.nextel.com.
    2. Click on "coverage."
    3. Look at the center of the map. That's where SD is.
    4. Click on "Sioux Falls"
    5. See that purple and orange? Those are the covered areas.

    Thats like as FAR east in North and South Dakota as you can get. Go to
    Verizon's website and enter 58201 as your zip code and you see how much
    better Verizon's coverage is than Nextels in the Dakotas'. hell Nextel
    doesn't even have service in Bismarck.

    With Nextel you go a slight bit west of Sioux Falls and you get nothing.
