iDEN to CDMA conversion

by gloopey1    Jul 7, 2012, 10:30 PM

Sprint is currently in the process of transitioning its IDEN network over to 800 Mhz CDMA. Just like Verizon and at&t did, they are experiencing "growing pains."

I mention this for two reasons: 1. I do so as an FYI to fellow users on the forum. 2. I also want to squash any credibility that some of the clueless morons may have gained via trolling this forum.

Once the towers are all changed over, the enhanced coverage and reception will be phenomenal. 800 ESMR CDMA is about as good as it gets in terms of structure penetration and square mile coverage.

Anyone who was lucky enough to use Nextel about 10 years ago remembers that, where it worked, it was unbeatable. Now, it's going to work in a lot more places and be fully unleashed as in its glory days. Since CDMA can operate on frequencies that won't interfere with emergency equipment, you'll get all the good without any of the bad.

Unfortunately, living through the upgrade is similar to living through an extreme home makeover. In other words, your house is in shambles for weeks at a time until the work is completed.

Imagine if the neighbors complained about your home improvement project. How dumb would it be for them not to realize that the mess is only temporary and the end result is their home value increases as well.

This is the mindset of the s--- for brains numbskulls who post their mindless, uninformed blather--bashing Sprint for trying to upgrade its own network.

I for one plan on seeing this thing through to its completion.
