I assume you mean GSM. No, it's not.
The 7100i is iDEN.

GSM is a wireless technology used by about 80% of the world.
In the US, AT&T and T-Mobile are the largest GSM-based carriers.

Verizon and Sprint have CDMA networks.

Nextel uses iDEN.

oh yeah thats what I meant ok thanks just saved me from buying a phone that I would not have been able to use.... I was planning on buying the CECT P168 Cell Phone but if its not compatiable with the one I have than its not worth it. I wanted to change it back to a regular Nextel but I was told I needed another sim card for that because it would not take a blackberry sim card. Now is that all of Nextel sim cards are not GSM?? Thanks for the help...
