Well I don't know about that part
I am becoming pretty disenchanted with Nextel. I am finishing up my third year with their Blackberry service and I have the unlimited plan as well. My web, e-mail, and instant messaging is unlimited but we don't have SMS capability at all. Well, correction, we can RECEIVE SMS but are unable to reply as an SMS. This requires that you look up the e-mail address for the sender and reply that way - IF you can figure out who sent the darned thing! This is a huge nuisance for me and I understand that some of the other carriers provide SMS for blackberry so I think I will ditch Nextel at the earliest opportunity.
As well, they called me and offered me a new "free phone" to add to my plan to "share minutes" and I seized the opportunity thinking I could use this phone for SMS, share the minutes on my existing voice plan, and pay an additional fee for unlimited SMS. I don't know what went wrong but my bill went from $106 to $285. I don't want to know what happened and I won't try to figure it out. I packaged their little crap phone back into the box and shipped it back pronto. Liars!
