Report: Sprint In Talks to Sell iDEN Network
What a bunch of cellular fluzies..........
I work for the Sprint only side, it's not that I hate Nextel, just give it to someone that can focus on iDEN. Because the only good thing Nextel has going for it right now is a sronger phone.
Well, the thing is, these customers should have been migrated over to Sprint immediately. Just like with any other merger, the customers should have been forced off that network and onto the Sprint network. The Nextel network should have been shut down a long time ago because of the age of the iDEN technology. TDMA-based technologies are dead. They suck in general. You don't get good call quality and you get lots of dropped calls. And with Nextel, I'm sick and tired of hearing people's loud, entire conversations in Wal-Mart while going down the aisle, or checking out. Thank god people in my family are smart enough not to have it.
Such a migration would not have been possible nor even nec...
as I was a dedicated nextel customer, I was always impressed on the ptt technology nextel had. ATT came close with the infamous "chirp" but the latency of connect was not a selling feature by any means. Verizons is so bad that even some of my family members that work for them said it is a joke. sprints ready link sucked as well. I merely stated that nextel is becoming the past. everyone agrees that sprint got themselves into some trouble with the merge, but I think what they did is take the candy and now they are throwing the wrapper away. I feel that Sprints new Qchat has taken the ptt to the next level. side by side, I have virtually seen no huge differences between the two and now they have the high speed
Sprint, my advice is forget about QChat and selling off iDEN, and make more, better Powersource handsets.
I also agree with CDMA being the better network. technically GSM is the older technology although many would argue that. many had speculated that CDMA would be the world standard because of its ability to manage info better. but for some reason GSM became the standard. but either way, you are right. it does not matter what carrier or technology you have. there are going to be dropped...
I absolutely agree with iden being the best. as I said I was a dedicated nextel customer and a big fan. unfortunately, everything is shifting to communicating through a data process and the good thing is that the ptt technology will follow into that advancement. but nextel will not be able to progress to that advancement. it is though at this point the leader.

second: is there a large enough population in the area between those two cities to support the need for deployment of powervision?
third: is clearwire offered in your area?
fourth: do Att and Verizon have it where you live.
Money is very tight for Sprint right now. so an answer to all these questions can better my response.
Wimax is not a crock. it is not only going to happen, it already has. it takes time to rollout this stuff and won't happen overnight. If Sprint were to tackle this on their own, it might have been a crock. but the mere fact that they have finacial backing from major companies, Sprint is in a position to use those funds towards WiMax which would stall rolling out anymore powervision. but ...
Not that it's PTT related, but I have always appreciated that Nextel gives the user genuine, usable GPS in the phone. Most of the other carriers are YEARS behind the true GPS capabilities of Nextel.
Motorola also has additional capability developed a few years ago for iDEN that includes PTT Smart Messages, which allows you to PTT canned text messages that come with the phone, as well as allowing the user to compose their own short messages. Now THAT would be ...
