    You cannot use a Nextel phone on the GSM network.

    Nextel is iDEN and TMobile is GSM. Though both utilize a sim card much like CDMA in Korea.. The two are 100% completely incompatible with eachother. Nextel doesnt lock their phones because only Nextel and Telus Mobility Mike use that technology both of which have massive agreements with one another and sell the same phones. No need to lock them..cause one is canadian one american and you arent going to find another iDEN provider to use phone on. Nextel sucks in comparison to TMobile. Stick to what works. January launches new phones and push to talk like Nextel. Sit tight its worth it

    absoluetly not!
    because they're based on different protocol
    Nextel: IDEN
    T-Mobile: GSM
    can use SIM means nothing, even some CDMA phones start to use SIM as well

    I thought Southern Linc in the SouthEast of the US used iDen as well. Not just MIKE and NEXTSMELL!

    that's disgusting. any cuteness or elegance of a girl with that phone would be out the window at the first BEEP BEEP!

    i would never go out with a nextel girl. i'd sooner have a gf that smokes rather than PTT's!
