Default No More 7520

Please Login to Remove!

My company just called Nextel to get two 7520's and Nextel is no longer carrying them. The only phone Nextel has to offer right now is the 7100. I ask Nextel and they said there was NO NEW phone in the works.

Nextel never had the 7250(CDMA); they used the 7520(IDEN). 7520's should be easy to track down on eBay. Other than that, you're stuck with the 7100i till they stop carrying that too. Or switch to Sprint and lose the PTT or switch to another provider.

I'm with Telus in Canada and they're in the process of dropping both the 7520 and the 7250.

Apparently RIM can't be bothered with what they see as a dying technology.

If they are now with Sprint then I assume you can get a Sprint device.

Nope. Nextel only works with Nextel phones not Sprint.
