what help we could be to each other if we were all connected? What a brain trust! I think we could fix anything with all of the knowledge present here. Something to think about.........?

    check this out

    They're available with GPS locators (keep track of where all the phones are at any given time) and with a credit card swipe so you can simply charge the customer on the spot!

    That would be cool!!!!!

    However, since I live in God's country....Nextel knows that there isn't enough souls here to make the venture worth while, so we get to get screwed by AT&T and Verizon....ATT&T won't even give me a nation wide plan!!!

    Love these mountains, most of the time...hate these mountains, sometimes.....

    oh well...

    Hey, can you imagine when they get those celluar video phones???!!!!

    I love mine . It's the only phone I have . Why pay for something hanging on the wall that I won't use .

    The biggest drawback in this area , is that there are too many "dead spots" . Trying to contact the office, or anyone else for that matter in certain areas is like finding a needle in a haystack. Nextel says they're working on it , but for the money I pay for it, and to be in a "no service" area is a waste of TIME . Hopefully , they'll get it worked out because almost all of my suppliers and contractors are using it . Chris

    The credit card swipe is the main reason I'm switching. "churp churp"
