Default Sprint & Nextel Merger

Please Login to Remove!

Well... Looks like the FCC has approved a merger between Sprint and Nextel. I sure hope I don't have to watch Sprint Cup Nascar races... Should be Winston.

The new 5mb Plan is Application Data only....

the 3mb plan was up to 5mb...same price

As far as Nextel iDEN phone they will be there for a long time 2010.

There are specials that have changed lots of little things on plans $5.00 buy-up all mobile to mobile free (iDEN(Nextel), CDMA(Sprint) both are included and the mobile to mobile buy-up is available on all plans)

Default Signal?

At my home, i used to have full bars as a signal, just yesterday i noticed that I'm barely getting a signal. Did anyone run into a problem like I did? The reason I switched from sprint to nextel was that i get better reception where I live using nextel. Is nextel using sprints towers?

well I just saved myself 10 dollars a month and got all sorts of new features. guys you all need to call nextel and have them go over your accounts with you. I called them today and I did away with three services that i was paying for upfraded my account to one of the new sprint plans and got all the stuff I was paying for for just renewing my contract with them plus now I can talk nationwide on the dc for free and get to talk for free after 6pm so i will say the nextel merger has been a positive for me so far

I have split billing, so I'm afraid to even touch anything on my account. I originally left Sprint b/c of 6 months of unresolved billing issues. I don't want to go back to that. :(

So that would mean you moved to a Free Incoming Plan there Dawg, and now having 6p you will never be using any minutes, plus M2M.

yes I had a 500 minute free incoming and was paying for M2M and nationwide direct connect. So all I did was went to a new sprint 500 free incoming plan and I get nationwide free and I am still paying for the M2M but i saved the 20 bucks a month so I was able to add the night and weekend plan and still come out 10 dollars cheaper
