I have three nextel phones at the present. They are handy as pocket on a shirt. THe problem is they are double the price when it comes to monthly fees. My brother works for a cell phone company ( AT&T wireless). He tells me that he can set me up with phones for little to nothing. I have had all the major players when it comes to cell phones. All about the same. In service and coverage. I was just wondering what the other guys are doing about this....????
