It's a fact that Nextel/iDEN PTT is a genuine radio-dispatch system, very different than the emulators used by Verizon, ATT and Sprint. No other system has yet touched Nextel/iDEN for PTT performance.

What I did not know was how bad Verizon's PTT can be. Your post begs three questions:

1) Was your company's footprint in a rural area where Verizon failed to upgrade their network to properly handle their PTT emulator?

2) After your company chucked Verizon, what did you replace it with? Back to genuine Nextel, or Qchat?

3) When iDEN goes away starting in 2013, where do you think the remaining 7 million or so diehard Nextel customers will go?
