Yeah. The thing is, I would be using it through Nextel and I'm not sure if I can do that? I was looking at a Nextel phone but can't spend $250+, so this is a perfect time you list this, ha. Would you know whether or not it's only Cingular or? I'll have to call Nextel tomorrow maybe

No idea? My current nextel is an old, still non color screen. No ports for a sim card.. ha. I live in Sycamore, about 60 miles west of chicago, neighbor to DeKalb which is home of NIU, don't know if you know any of this. That would be good though if I end up buying it

Just wondering, because I know an old Kyocera phone I had, had "Verizon" on the phone itself, so I'm guess I could only use that for Verizon.

Tomorrow I'll get a hold of Nextel, and get back to you

If the phone will work with Nextel, there's a 96% chance I'll be buying it

Uh-oh, on the 7290's page, on the right it shows Available Service Providers:
Available Service Providers


!

I'll still have to call them tomorrow though, you never know



And, can you text message on it? Seems like a stupid question but I've only been reading about email, web browsing and such. Or is "SMS" text messaging?

sms is texting and im 99.9% positive you wont be able to use it on nextel because t-mobile and cingular are the only companies that use sim cards. but you never know.

no nextel uses IDEN, and cingular uses GSM, so i dont think so, but maybe...
