Call Priority and Wireless Priority (WPS). Are they the same thing? I'm getting mixed answers from friends. Some say it's the same, others no. One side says Call priority is something on your phone that's added and the higher the # your phone is assigned (both at the company and on your phone), the more likely the call will go through (you will either bounce someone else off the system with lower priority than you or else the call will go through before anothers with lower). You're assigned a number from 1-6. This is always on your phone and always in effect. This service proper paperwork is given to Nextel (I'm told only nextel has it along with the walkie-talkie service priority) and they fix it. For WPS, http://wps.ncs.gov/ You need to punch *272 before each call (during an emergency) and the call will go through. This service proper paperwork is given into the WPS and they contact the cell provider to add it. I'm a paramedic and have Nextel both for personal and work. On each bill I pay three dollars more and it's listed at "Public Service Value Package L3." Howevere nobody at Nextel knows the difference or if they're both the same! Yet, they know how to hook it up!!! Ideas here?
