Qchat vs. iDEN
Again. Nextel is not getting rid of all of their 800 MHz. They are actually keeping a lot of It. just exchanging some for some to have a contiguous band.
lets just say sprint has 800-825, the government has 826-850 then sprint has 851-857, sprint is merely exchanging the 800-825 for the 826-850 spectrum so that it has a continous part of the spectrum rather than having it broken up by the governments part. this might have been explained b4 but i thought i would re-explain it just in case some may have missed it.

I read that Sprint is selling the 800MHz spectrum to the gov, so I dont know if Nextel will continue anyway. But still, what are your thoughts? Thank you in advance!
My recommendation would be to maybe consider a Powersource phone for now instead. As these guys have pointed out, QChat is still a new technology, and the bugs are still being worked out, along with coverage issues.
I do think once those issues are resolved that QChat will be a better product. Aside from having more versatility, QChat runs over, in my opinion, a better network w...
