I have several contractor friends that find this equally exciting news even today.

For someone that advertises a CB shop, I would think you would be happy about the most quintessential form of 2 way radio making important news.

Working with guys in the construction field this is exciting news, they sure love their Nextel Direct connect. As an IT guy, I just don't get it.

I really liked the direct connect. But as we all know, sprints network is the smallest next to tmobile. Forget using your phone in rural America like I tried to do. I have drivin up to 250 miles with nextel and had no service.

It was great a few years ago. But when Sprint bought Nextel out is when the service went down hill. I remember when I had a Nextel phone they switched me to a hybrid phone.

RE: "They should've left Nextel alone Sprint killed them."
> Truer words have never been spoken.

But given their urge to merge, what they SHOULD have done was to let Nextel take over Sprint, and change Sprint to running the Nextel Way, not trashing Nextel by running it the Sprint way. If only they'd let Nextel rule the roost, today we'd have something to be happy about, a properly integrated communications system that truly magnified the best resources of both Nextel & Sprint. But noooooo!

Back to the topic of this news release, regarding the new Qualcom CDMA-based PTT they are rolling out next month, they keep saying "feature rich" but I can only see one feature that it will have that the current iDEN PTT doesn't, that is the so-cal...
