I was in Windsor Canada yesterday in the city with a good signal and the service would drop out for about 2 min. And then come back up I was sitting still for about 2 hours and it never quit doing that. Has anyone else had that problem.? It would do that about every 7 minutes. I have a Nextel 7520.

In downtown Windsor and Detroit NEXTEL/TELUS sometimes fight for signal. When I come out of the tunnel sometimes it takes a few minutes to get a signal. Usually its never a pronblem, but when I go to Grosse Point ,on the US side, I connect to the TELUS towen in Windsor and not the NEXTEL. Go figure...

The MiKE iDEN service offered by Telus roam on NEXTEL for voice, not sure about data? Telus CDMA phone most likely roam on US CDMA carrier networks eg. Verizon, Alltel etc.

According to the coverage map it should have decent coverage depending on where you are buildings, tunnels, etc.
