    just wondering what the general consensus is out there as far as Cingular vs. Nextel in the Northeast. Mainly Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York?

    Coverage wise Cingular beats Nextel.
    You go to Rural Areas you'll see and some Cities.
    But if you don't go to Rural Areas that's fine.
    I only use VZW and Cingular
    that's why I can only compare
    Cingular Coverage VS VZW.
    Cingular coverage in NY, CT,
    PA and NJ has Gone Big Time.

    Check Nextel Coverage Map.

    Have you thought about Sprint?Roaming is included in the fair and flexible plans and so is mobile to mobile and you can call all sprint and nextel customers except for nextel partner customer they are not included.If you try Sprint and your not happy you can switch to Nextel with no etf since it's the new Sprint.

    By the way MA Coverage map for Cingular shows it Fully Covered.
    Changes are always for the Good or Better.
    Quality Strong Signal at Home,
    Work and Friends Places should be Great.
    I would select the Carrier with the Strongest Signal
    in those Places.
    You don't want the Weakest Link Carrier.

    The reason I'm switching is because in the event I make it through testing for a local Police Officer position I know all the guys have Nextel on the force. Having the luxury of direct connect is nice.

    I guess DC would be the "only" real reason to switch to Nextel. If you don't know a lot of peop,e with Nextel service why bother. I have to say their phones are way better than Cingular's. That is if you like flip phones. The i850 looks real nice. :D :D

    DC would be nice in your case. Just ask some of the guys in the force then how their coverage is and go ahead and try Nextel out.

    Was going to do that, but you never know who's in here and what information they have so that's why I always check here first. Then I go from there! :biggrin:

    Oh, no, don't get me wrong. It's a great idea to check here first... :D
    Then go from there since you never know...

    That really depends on personal taste. I personally don't like any of the Nextel phones. To me they are all too big, bulky, ancient-looking, and ugly.
