Default Blackberry 8830 and Nextel

Please Login to Remove!


I couldn't find an answer using the search function so I had to register. My job requires me to have the Push-to-talk direct connect functionality on my phone and the only Blackberry option I have is a 7100. I don't want to go get that one since it's dated and I've heard rumors of an 8830 model with direct connect.

Can anyone provide any information on this for me?

Thank you.

The 8830 is not an iDen device. It won't work with NexTel.
