Rich enough to own a Nextel?

I owned the Nextel 1500 for a while and then the Nextel i95c. After two years, I left the service with mixed reviews. First the pros. Custumer Service: Nextel is a great company, with superior customer service and a very courteous, knowledgable staff. They are responsive to their customer's needs. Phone Quality: Overall, this is great. Many of the 1500's are very problematic. There's been bugs in their system that they did not account for, so many of these phones are dysfunctional. However, their most updated phones are great, filled with a fast network, reliable connection, good internet connection, speakerphone and other great features like voice dialing, colored screen. If you can afford to spend $500 on a cell phone, then this is the best way to waste your money. Reception: wonderful. Very rarely does the phone experience bad problems with their connections. Even in tunnels and indoor places, their reception has always been great. Direct Connect Feature. No other cell phones provide the convenience of both cellular communication and walkie talkie. Its great to talk to people without having to dial them. First, this was limited to the other pair of cell that you bought it with. Later it was extended to all Nextel users. Speakerphone- the speakerphone is great for driving, or while waiting for a customer service representative, or while taking in dictation.


Expensive: First, for such a great phone, thier phone plans are very expensive. I think they are geared more for fancy people who can afford their ridiculous rates--sometimes soaring to $99 per month, and .35/min extra. Many ugly phones- While their cell phones are pretty, they made a few that are just bad looking. The later editions are cool, but the older versions are huge, bulky and not very pleasing to look at. For the most pamore ''special'' phones, accessible only to the rich and famous members of the community, who are both lucky enough to live by a Bloomingdales, and are fortunate enough to throw their money on a limited edition. Purchasing accessories for this phone is a bit hard too, since many stores do not carry Nextel items and their accessories are not compatible with other phones. Verdict-- Unless you're rich enough, probably not worth it.
