NEXTEL service?

Postby DINO » Wed Aug 24, 2005 11:10 am

Hey! I'm heading out for some R&R (AKA drinking) this weekend. Being a PIB virgin, I need to know if Nextel service is available on the island just in case I need to call my surgeon with a heads up to schedule a liver transplant. Thanks for the insight.

Hi Dino,

Most of my friends that have been on past trips have Nextel. The service was not very good. We stay at Island Club and when we were around the house in certain spots the service worked great but if you moved you lost the call. If you've ever seen the cell commericals where everyone is piled on a bench b/c that's the service spot, that was us only with a chair in the driveway in the one spot the phone worked. LOL! :) Maybe others have had better luck.

Nextel sucks, but I am sure soemone will let you borrow their verizon on the island as most people ahve free nights and weekends.
