    I have 4 cell phones listed on ebay for sale.

    Search Motorola i730 to find
    1-Motorola i 730 w/ chargers and case Nextel

    2-Motorola i305 w/ chargers and case Nextel

    Search Motorola t720 to find
    1-Motorola T 720 w/charger Cingular

    All 4 at this point are under 100 dollars for all.

    Why don't you post a link to your auction? No one is going to sort through 10,000+ listings to find yours. There is way to much stuff that comes up with that search criteria. Just an idea.

    Its to my understanding that once you buy a Nextel phone, Its your for ever! You can't activate a used nextel phone. Rules may have chanced sinse I called nextel. But thats what i was told!

    Someone told you a lie. Especially SIM card phones. Just pop the card in & your in business!

    nextel buyback

    If you have a nextel acct you can sell them back to nextel for 75 bucks. THey will credit your acct. THat is for the nextel phones only.

    Its the complete opposite, Nextel phones don't have locking software like some other companys do, I have several Nextels that i just change the sim card from phone to phone and they don't have a problem with this, the sim is under the battery and holds the phone numbers and account software, problem with this is the newer i730 type phones use 64 bit sim cards and the older phones use 32 bit so using a lesser bit sim in a newer 64 bit phone won't allow you to use all of the features so you need to do the home work before buying a Nextel with hopes of just changing out your sim,

    Depending on the phone model you can get two to three times that selling them on Ebay as the market for phones with out a contract is pretty good, look and see for your self
