Angry Nextel data in DC has been down for almost a month

Please Login to Remove!

in zip code 20036.
We have not had a data signal in over a month in our building. Signal stregth is good, just no data.
Anyone else have this problem?
Nextel acknoweldges there is a problem, but is not providing an ETA on the fix.

That is one of the reasons i left them and went to Cingular. I loved the voice but the blackberry was nightmare with those kinds of things happening a lot all over the country. I can think of 8 times of the top of my head that I had outage for a week or less while I was with them. That is over a one and a half year period

Problems with Nextel seem to be a common thread....

I wouldn't be surprised if Sprint is trying to force people to switch over from Nextel similiar to what Cingular did when they bought AT&T Wireless. Its coming back to bite Cingular in the a$$, a lawsuit has been filed.

Remember, please try searching first!

Yea I really dislike nextels. They are deffinatly sturdy as hell but I HATE those walkie talkies. Especially on the train! Oh my god! "HEY JUDY! I'M GETTING DINER WITH DAVE TONIGHT, OKAY!?" "WHAT?" "IM GETTING DINER WITH DAVE!" "OK!!!"

They are way to loud!
