Aren't they going to use their spectrum that was used for NEXTEL as well?
Yes, in my previous post, the "800" in "tri band LTE 800/1900/2500-2600" does refer to Nextel's re banded SMR 800 MHz spectrum that is currently used for iDEN 800.
As iDEN winds down over the next two years, Sprint may first deploy a few CDMA1x 800 carrier channels. Most Sprint devices (not including the iPhone 4/4S) released over the past year quietly include CDMA1x 800 (i.e. CDMA band class 10) capability. Then, once iDEN is gone for good, Sprint can roll out LTE 800 in that spectrum.
