I am so looking forward to the day the final nail is placed in the Nextel iDEN network's coffin and that spectrum is converted over to CDMA. Cool

Why didn't anyone bother to mention that
the IDEN spectrum isn't gonna be used for CDMA?

Actually they're going to put both on 800MHz

CDMA 1x-Advanced only requires 1.25MHz per channel so they have plenty of room to throw a couple voice channels along with a nice 5x5 LTE config.

The 800MHz CDMA channels will provide much better indoor service than PCS thus saving on roaming costs.. They'd be dumb not to use 800MHz for voice as well

All of these posters high-fiving because the Nextel 800/850 MHz spectrum is being converted to Sprint CDMA & LTE just prove that Sprint needed Nextel way more than Nextel needed Sprint Shocked

Not to mention the additional 1900 MHz that Nextel owned before the merger, and the huge amount of nationwide 2.5 GHz spectrum that Nextel brought to the party and Sprint literally gave away to Clearwire,

Sprint CDMA and eventually LTE customers will benefit a huge amount from all the Nextel resources. A reasonable person would think that those legacy Sprint customers would show at least a small amount of gratitude toward the dying Nextel. Not unlike the native Americans of generations past who always give thanks for the buffalo they killed to survi...
