Sprint's PTT is not superior to Verizon. And Most people would say that it doesn't come CLOSE to IDEN. It requires EVDO speed and that is not available everywhere. Statistics show that IDEN DC is more reliable than Sprint's PTT. No EVDO no PTT.
Rarely do you see and IDEN user have no DC service.
To push an Emergency Response Frequency that depends on PTT to a Sprint format would put people in rural areas in serious jeopardy.
If ANY carrier can find a way to EFFECTIVELY put a PPT system on CDMA AND IDEN it would be almost flawless... Please do not site the recent Sprint PPT to Nextel DC'ers to me. It doesn't work. My company was the first dealer of Nextel in Michigan. PTT is NOT DC. Sprint has driven DC into the ground and disappointed customers and forced companies that relied on DC into poor devices and have confused the rest who just give up and drop service.
Rebuild IDEN. Keep an frequence for JUST Local, State and National goverenment use.
IDEN used to work... but people that wanted it with data and 'cute' phones RUINED IT...
Again, my opinion is based on experience, personal and professional.
But show me a die hard Nextel DC user and they'll tell you... Sprint broke it...
