i live in nj. my father and sister have nextel, my mother and i have t-mobile. unless you're going to be doing A LOT of direct connecting, nextel is just not worth it. horrible reception in the tri-state area, expensive plans + phones, phones are bulky, etc

stick with t-mobile, or if you really want to try something new, all my friends w/cingular love it and have great reception!
