    Wireless Web on Nokia

    2 questions
    1) How is the Nextel service in NY and Pa?
    2) If you get wireless web for $10/month - it is unlimited - doesnt subtract from calling plan minutes...
    Is this worth it in an argument of Verizon vs. Nextel???

    I provide 'em all!
    I'm biased because I work with Cingular, but there is a store in South Philly (Car Phone Specialists Inc.) that sold both Nextel and Cingular, the owner's name is Nick, he's a good friend of mine. (look him up, give him a call)

    He's always told me that in the Philadelphia metro area, if you want a cell phone get Cingular, if you want a push to talk feature exclusively get Nextel. Basically Nextel is great for what they specialize in, but they don't specialize in cell PHONES.

    To answer 2 of your questions truthfully, i will have to put it this way. Yes, the NOL service does NOT take away from your minutes for $10 a month unlimited access. Where as with Verizon it may only be $7 a month but takes out of your minutes.

    I personally do not think the Wireless internet is worth it, even though i just got it. I do however see a need for it if you travel ALOT and can't be by a computer to check such things as e-mail, AIM, yellow pages, white pages, AOL mail, etc.

    P.S.-i am only sticking with NOL because up through June 30 or so, they are adding 100 bonus anytime minutes to your plan if you get the premium web service for $15 which includes unlimited 2-way messaging also, so the best way i can think of this is i'm paying $10 for 100 more minutes (like you would on every other carrier) and a measly $5 for the full internet deal with two way messaging.

    Just my 2 cents.
