I agree with this statement. The merger was completely mishandled from day one. I lay the blame on Forsee and the other incompetents running Sprint in 2005.

The loss of this inefficient, clunky, dated technology and business model will not be missed for the pain in the neck that it is and now was.

Here's where I disagree. Nextel was the most successful wireless business in the industry. Their "clunky" business model, as you put it, is being emulated by the two major carriers. At&t just released their version of PTT advanced to compete with Sprint. Verizon also upgraded their platform a few years ago.

The reason Hesse is successful is he has turned Sprint into the company Nextel once was. While I'll miss the Nextel name, I feel Sprint is finally on track.
