how many of you have the "R-Link" option on your phone?? if so....do any of you have it activated?? what are your thoughts?? how does it compare to Nextel's "walkie-talkie" feature?? thanks for any info.

I'd say, don't do it. My phone, Sanyo RL4920, has the option but I think it's a waste of money. You can get unlimited Sprint->Sprint for $5 of unlimited RL->RL for $15 a month. Hmmm both do the same thing, communicate to Sprint users for no more minutes out of your plan. One's incredibly rude, I think, where the other is like any other use of the phone. Mainly seen as a waste of money to me.

I don't have sprint, but I can comment on Nextel's direct connect feature. While a lot of people think that Direct connect is incredibly rude, it's the user who's being rude. All of Nextel's phones have a button that turns the speaker for direct connect off, and you can talk on it like a regular phone (just have to hit the DC button)

EXACTLY. I use mine like that all the time. I was in a restaurant yesterday where some ass was having a conversation on his Nextel with the speaker turned way up. Idiot.

I didn't even know that Sprint had that. I wish they were all compatible (Sprint, Verizon, Nextel, AT&T, etc.).

That would be nice. Have you tried checking on some cell phone discussion forums? I'll see if I can dig some up.

fuck dude.....depending on where you are...services vary...and in MY opinion...they ALL suck in one way or another...you have the choice of the lesser of several evils as far as i'm concerned......but..yet AGAIN lets try to stay on topic......i'm wondering about the R-link....thanks.

Amen brother!


Extra options & features?!? With Sprint!?! Are you F-ing kidding me!?!

I'd be happy if the damn thing simply worked as a phone and didn't drop every damn call.

All I can add is that I love my Nextel! I wouldn't trade DirectConnect for anything. If this phone will do the samething, I say get it.
