Nextel has lousy coverage in NE DC. Very problematic along Rhode Island Ave, Home Depot, Brookland areas as well as driving on the Baltimore Washington Parkway. I am dropping Nextel for Verizon.

I have had sprint,verizon,voicestream,t-mobile and AT&T tdma and gsm phones and by far the at&t's gsm phones are far more reilable when you are talking in the reception catagory in most places that I hav been on the east coast I have had great service with the AT&T network and to be honest I really would have liked it better if AT&T would have bought cingular, becaue Cingular on the other hand has a more (non) customer service here is one example AT&T customer service deparment never closed but not of the merger cingulars customer service department closes at 9p.m. est

Average reception for SprintPCS in my area. No reception in Metro Tunnels and Stations, which is annoying. Would switch to Verizon in a heartbeat, but they don't support the Treo or any other real data oriented phones.

I dont think Nextel is of any use in DC unless you just want to use it for that direct calls or walkee takee thing. If u live or work in DC, just look for another company.

No reception in or around my house. Have to go outside and down the street for the bars to come on! That's sad.

My reception in my area is perfect all throughout the area, my home, and in my basement. I have no complaints, and I don't remember the last time I had a dropped call. I did have a problem once, where it was late at night and I went from a full signal to one bar, and it stayed like that for hours. They were probably doing repairs on the tower or something, but that is my only problem.
