Default NEXTEL Blackberry Service

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know when the NEXTEL portion of Sprint will stop working? Some where I saw some time in 2010 as that's when the radio licenses expire. Currently Sprint and NEXTEL Service is separate except for a few phone that use the Direct Connect.

I just switched over to 100% Sprint over a month ago and it sucks so bad. I want to go back to the NEXTEL Network as I never had any issues!! The service is so erratic it's not even funny any more on Sprints Network. I have the "Simply Everything Plan" for the 99.99 a month. So I can talk, SMS, MMS and surf until the cows come home for the 100 bucks. With other carriers it's going to cost me upwards of 150.00 for the same services. I had the same plan on my NEXTEL Blackberry. With my new Sprint Blackberry the calls just drop, no warning, garble, nothing. My brother made a commit the other day after several phone calls of being disconnected that with my new Sprint device that Sprint may have the ability to kill the call when they detect too much usage? As silly as it sounds I'm beginning to think that's the issue. I don't use the browser much at all, just the BIS and phone portion. I use about 1500 minutes a month, which I don't consider an abundant amount of time. When I make the calls I have 3 bars on the meter, which I know is not dead on. But when I make the call, the meter starts to drop to lost signal. I'm head to the Sprint store today to see if they can locate the problem. Any suggestions most helpful.
