    Rookie needs advice-------------->

    Advertisement



    Well, I have been reading for a little while...and love the forum. I have a real rookie question. Im currently use nextel service with a i830 phone. So...Im dead set on a 7100i. Im going to buy one. My question is...am I stuck with having to use a 7100i or can I use any other 7100 series. I know each carrier uses different frequencies, but are there any others that would work with nextel other than the "i" series?

    Thanks in advance,

    D

    You can only use the 7100i with nextel. They are not GSM like most BB carriers.

    Dang it. GSM? So there is NO way? No even if I get the carrier to release the IMEI and PIN?

    Thanks

    No Nextel uses IDEN. Totally different technology.

    Dang dang dang! Now I have to find a 7100i for as cheap as the other 7100's.

    Thanks again,
