Is there something i’m not getting here?
Nextel seems to advertise a lot their “walkie-talkie” feature of their phones. What makes this a benefit?
It seems we have come a long way from the “walki-talkie” days and advanced to actual cellular phones where people can talk directly back and forth simultaneously.
I know they have “direct-connect” where you can immediately beep another person but is speed-dial on a normal phone that inconvenient?
Sure, you don’t use “minutes” when direct-connecting with someone but for the price of a Nextel plan you can get over 1000 minutes with other carriers.
So what am I missing here?
