I am currently a Nextel subscriber.
I enjoy FREE incoming calls and early free nights and weekends (6 pm)

My current phone is the i930.

Im looking for a change. What do you guys recommend?

I'm leaning towards ATT and the iphone.

Any feedback will be welcomed.

i dont know how soon you are looking to get one but Musti was talkin about the Nokia i believe and the ability to listen to freestyle.fm on it. Dont know if you have to stick with nextell or not but just throwing it out there.

I actually have Verizon. They seem the most stable where I live, I actually had a contract with Nextel for my guys about two week into it I terminated the contract.

I love my phone. But I can't get Blue Tooth for it.
I can only get the Buck Toof! You know. With the string.

Does anyone know about the Verizon Voyager?

okay the voyager absolutely the most sought after phone by verizon wireless ever in the history of the company In my 7 years as a rep of verizon ive never seen a phone that remained back order four four months because of such high demand lets start off with the what should be obvious

no matter how cool the i phone looks on the commercial theres one basic fault you have to use ATand T it runs on a 3g network when you see how fast the pages turn when browsing the internet in the commercial they must have speeded up the camera because it dont go no where near that in real life!

voyager evdo email acess much faster more reception for your phone calls too!

look ma no battery! thats what you get with a 500 dollar phone from apple you cant change the battery in the i phone you have to send it out if you have an issue thats means youre without a phone for a week guess you could borrow your sisters in the meantime


insurance ... the average consumer assumes they can buy a cell at anytime for 30.00 that is until they sneeze while using the bathroom and thier 500 dollar phone goes in the bowl, watch the salesman face as you return to the store and explain "nobody told me about the insurance" at verizon we offer insurance on all phones you make the choice wheter to live on the edge (otherwise known as being frugal) or protect your investment

att and t and the i phone "sorry buddy we dont believe in protection for a 500 dollar phone you breaky you pay" no insurance offered


cool pics and videos on both but only the voyager can actually send to freinds and family


touch vibrate application on the voyager i phone no response at all

music downloads on the go right over the air!! voyager capable

i phone you have to wait till you get to a computer to tether

speaking of all that music you cant wait to store on your phone voyager dual stero speakers for playback!!

i phone ummmm no

texting made easy with built in keyboard on the voyager
i phone ummm no

voyager cost about 300 on agreement vs 400 for the i phone


bluetooth even 20 dollar phones with verizon offer bluetooth the i phone at 400 dollars no bluetooth keep your ear bud handy for calls and to lsten to music

i could continue but at that point it would just be bashing and im biased since i work for verizon but please feel free to research and follow up and find any correction from the above

One correction, AT&T does run on a 3g Network but if I remember correctly the iPhone does not. That and the lack of bluetooth is why I went with the Blackjack II

not directly on the device however there are software and websites which i cant really name outright in conflict with my job which convert your mp3 files to ringtone"clips" which you can then send to any phone to then save as your ringtone the majority of these sites are free and require no subscription

AT and T claims a "newer 3g network" for the i phone not exactly explaining whats so new, and how do you come out with a phone thats allegedly so cutting edge without bluetooth nor the ability to send pic messsaging nor something as basic as being able to acess and change your battery

at radio shack you can put insurance or warranty on a 20.00 electronic device but i phone decided "no insurance for you"!! like the soup nazi

either way no provider has the speed capacity of evdo used by verizon

lol, sure I'll take a $500.00 phone with no service plan. Yea right away. No thanks. The iPhone as with everything Apple is nice eye candy, but not worth the money. At least for not for my needs.

by the way EVDO means in laymens Evolution Data Only/Evolution Data Optimized its a faster way for wireless broadband acess on not only moblie but laptop devices The broadband-speed 1xEVDO is currently available in most metropolitan U.S. cities (Verizon and Sprint are both continually upgrading their service areas to Revision A - or REV A the newest development in EVDO that provides dramatically increased upload speeds averaging 300-400kbps).


we explain things we dont just label things "3g new and improved because we say so"

I don't know what a newer 3g network is, never of it and never see it mentioned in their advertising. But 3g is actually the name of the standard. So if it's improved it should be something else.

Reminds me of when wifi routers came out and a few years later Linksys was offering the "BOOST WiFi" that supposedly boosted the wireless signal, at an extra cost of course. But there was a catch, the Boost effect didn't work unless you got the Boost enhanced router and Boost enchanced NICs. Sounds like the only thing getting Boosted was the consumers!

Until they come up with a whole new standard its still the same old 3g crap with a different wrapper. Don't believe the hype.

Ah I see you edited your post while I was typing mine. 300-400kbps, Is that all?
AT&T are going 500 - 800kbps, at the time I didn't think that was shit, but I guess it is the shit compared to others. Thanks for the info!
