  1. You miss the whole concept of comparison. Why would you want to add
    them together? It's a comparison between the two carriers and their
    covered population. Basic common sense would tell you this.

    Nope. That just represents the number of people that COULD use the carrier,
    not the number that actually do. Nationwide, VZW has less than 40 million
    subscribers.

    Nationwide EVERY wireless carrier has less than 40million subscribers,
    what is your point?

    Here- let me try to explain (and I'll go really slow). THe figures
    mentioned above are the population totals for the coverage areas of each
    provider. In other words, Nextel covers an area of the country where 243
    million people could take advantage of the coverage- verizon Nextel covers
    an area of the country where 237 million people could take advantage of the
    coverage. It is NOT their subscriber numbers. Are you really this stupid
    in real life?

    Who taught you that you should ASSUME everything in life?

    I know its 'potential' customers, you made it sound like there is some
    almighty Wireless carrier with hundreds of millions of subscribers.
    when NOT A SINGLE ONE has more than 40million. Nextel barely has near
    to 15 million.

    I have used Verizon heavily in Florida. Its well covered...not to
    mention numerous amounts of people i know travel to and from Michigan to
    Florida and they always exclaim how good their Verizon service is down
    there.

    Show me where I said that (this last post was the first time I've mentioned
    any of this). And what did I assume? Try Hooked On Phonics- it might help

    So, what you're really saying is that it was good where you visited (by the
    way, Snow White wants her dress back), but maybe not where you didn't
    visit.

    And I beg to differ with you about the Boston coverage. Go check with
    Perini, Modern Continental and the other major contractors about Nextel
    coverage in Boston. Check with National Lumber, they have several
    hundred Nextels in use too. Again, do your homework before you make such
    a foolish statement. Do you recall the Big Dig? Thousands of Nextels in
    use. I realize you like Verizon, and so do I, but when it comes to PTT
    in MA, it's no contest, Nextel is king. Maybe you work for Verizon and
    that's why you sound like such a fanboy on the various forums.

    It's a good thing you didn't mention Cingular, AT&T, Sprint and TMobile.
    He'd think you meant that the US population was over a billion people!

    You can't go by the coverage charts. I find Verizons charts to be
    flawed and the coverage in Florida does suck...my wife had it and was
    not able to make any calls from most of the buildings she frequented.
    Her phone would never ring and she would roam to Cingular 40% of the
    time even in the car. I'm not convinced.

    She is now on NEXTEL with me and is able to complete calls and only has
    problems in one Target by her folks house, other than that its perfect.

  16. Here is a hint David. Start a new thread about actual subscribers.
    We're talking about covered population here. If you don't know what
    that is then don't ask/make stupid comments.

  17. Acutally Verizon is limited in Florida with their native network.

    Wow- it seems that others would disagree.

    anywhere.

    I haven't seen anyone claim that (including myself). What was the point of
    the statement?
