If Nextel were to be sold off, my vote would be for SouthernLinc to purchase it. I don't, however, see this happening at all.

Sprint was misinformed within its own ranks with regard to the iDEN defections. No one ever stopped to consider why Legacy subscribers started leaving in droves. Network problems and the rise of texting were the assumed reasons behind it.

You and I both know the real reason that the Nextel folks left was because of Mother Sprint and her poor marketing decisions. Not to mention the threatened network shutoff nobody wanted, along with Nextel and DC branding that were being deemphasized.

I believe Sprint finally does have a team and plan in place that will work. The question, as you pointed out, is: is it too late? Hopefully not.
