SDC is not an app, mr AT&T employee, how very uniformed you are. SDC is used via DC button just like older Nextel handsets, except over LTE, EVDO, and 1x via a different service than Qchat.

Call it Enhanced Qchat or Qchat 2.0 or whatever you want, but Qchat is not what is being used. The Torque is currently using EVDO and 1x, but will get a MR to work on LTE for SDC pretty shortly.

There is like 2 maybe 3 handsets that are regulated to an SDC app, as a cool bonus feature, but the Dura line from Kyocera, the Sonim and Moto's Admiral units all have a dedicated DC button, just like the Iden Handsets.

Plus, those Mexico Nextel users can be reached via SDC cross country, which keeps a big portion of users moving to SDC since it's still compatible for that like the NDC was.
