Personally, Sprint would do good by getting rid of Nextel, Nextel is a sitting duck carrier; Out of date technology and a misguided way of business. Let's look at the fact (see quote) when I say misguided here's what I mean. The Nextel Buzz was a hybrid CDMA/iDen phone, CDMA used for voice/data while iden was used for PTT, this seemsed like an awesome way to go, as your using the faster (and more reliable CDMA network)for calls and data, now Sprint has turned the direction again and using only iDen based both for voice and data and PTT. I had nextel personally, and I got signal maybe about 30% of the time (now of course this is also depending on where you live)
Also handing out Dear John letters to your customers asking them to find another carrier.. thats not the way you do business. With all these companies going into the future, it seems sprint is stuck with a dead bird on it's back (Nextel).
"Sprint has become a veritable hot potato as a wave of suitors, possible partners, and investors have been talking with the third largest U.S. cell phone provider, which has been in a relentless downward spiral ever since it acquired Nextel for about $35 billion in 2004".
