    NExtel has a Sim Card? Wow, I thought only Tmobile & AT&T had SimCards

    (In the USA anyway)

    I guarantee it would NOT work. Nextel is a totally different network, called IDEN, that's similar to CDMA (though closest to the aging TDMA), and iPhone only supports GSM. The only reason Nextel uses SIM cards is to identify the customers, much like on GSM, but they are NOT GSM compatible.
