The whole thing is blowing up in Sprint's face again. Surprise, surprise. Back before the Nextel merger, many Sprint branded stores were actually affiliates. Most of them forced Sprint to buy them out at inflated prices in order for that merger to go through. It was a horrible idea for the two entities to merge in the first place, but the one benefit was the 2.5 MzH spectrum Nextel gained from Public Safety. That spectrum went towards Wi-Max and now one more affiliate is standing in the way. I hope Sprint has the dollars to purchase iPCS.

As to iPCS' claims...they are quite valid. Forget the dual mode CDMA/WiMax phones to come. iPCS sells Sprint Broadband Connect cards. How are they going to feel about competing directly with WiMax service? Not good at all and they should not have to.
