My company purchased a Blackberry 7100 Nextel in the Seattle area. I've come to Winthrop for the weekend intending to get some work done at the same time, but no coverage! I'm embarassed to say I don't even know who my carrier is. Any ideas?

I would imagine your carrier is Nextel. Remove the battery from the device and then remove the SIM card. What carrier's logo/name is on the SIM?

Nextel is on the iDEN network. It is a dying technology. You're most likely in an area with no reception. There's nothing you're going to be able to do.

Thanks for your help. I went to Nextel's site, and you are correct.
