Default NEXTEL--CELLPHONE?

HAS ANYONE GOT A NEXTEL PHONE? HOW FAR OUT TO SEA WERE YOU ABLE TO USE IT? THEY MUST HAVE A SIGNAL ON NASSAU ISLAND. AS TO MARKING THE LUGGUGE FOR ID. I FOUND SOME CAUTION TAPE IN THE GARAGE. I MAY USE THAT WITH CLEAR OVER IT. THINK THAT'S TOO BOLD.? IF THAT DOESN'T WORKOUT I'LL PUT SOME KIND OF HARLEY BANDANA'S ON THE HANDLE'S. NICE TO SEE EVERYONE GIVING SUGGESTIONS. I LIKED THE ONE SUGGESTING A CLEAR LICENSE HOLDER AROUND THE NECK WITH THE STRAP. WE USE THOSE WHEN WE GO TO THE DAYTONA NASCAR RACE'S. HAPPY SAILING, 12 DAYS TO GO.

Nextel depends on real cell towers to use the direct connect feature, and ours were worthless after about 4 hours past sailing.

Yeah we didnt have much luck with ours outside of Miami. The inlaws had Verizon I think and they had service in some places/ports.

I have been out deep sea fishing and we have had Nextel service out to just over 12 miles. Depends on where you are going check with Nextel and their coverage area.
