Latley I have been looking into Nextel for business phones. I am looking at getting 3 or 4 phones to start with and having a shared plan. I would like to hear what plans people are using and how much money they are spending per month. It seems that people are stuck on nextel because they like the walkie talkie feature. I am not convinced that the walkie talkie is anything more then a gimmick. I looked at the plans and I cannot see how a shared plan is any cheaper then getting individual cell phone plans with any similar competitor. Has anyone actually found that they are saving money because they got shared plans through nextel? The only way I see it being beneficial is if you have numerous crew with memebers without cell phones and you give them a nextel to soley walkie talkie. Otherwise it doesnt seeem like much of a deal at all.
