I used to be at Arial then to Voicestream and I swtiched to Cingular. I had too many problems being on a campus with 30,000 students and trying to use my phone so I went to T-Mobile, started having problems, so I came to Nextel.
Lots of people say Nextel sucks and it has spotty coverage but it depends on where you are. Since I got my BB 7520, I see probably a 200% better signal than my i830. Lots of my friends and I use Direct Connect a lot, which is a plus, and their customer service is top notch (which to me is as important as anything).
Some people don't get Nextel though, like when someone calls me and I'm not in service so it says, "please wait while we locate the nextel subscriber". I can't tell you how many times I've had to explain to someone that it's making sure I'm not somewhere else on the network/in another country.
That being said, if you live in a city with Nextel, ask around. One thing I've noticed is that if you have service, you have service. One/two bars works as well for me as all 5...And now with their prices being good (1000 Minutes, Free Nights/Weekends, Nationwide DC, etc for $49.99....and like $35-45 for the BB service), it's not too bad....
