Because first-hand information based on real-world experience is always good to have.

As one of the remaining Nextel customers who relies on iDEN PTT, the more info I can gather on how other folks are truly doing with VZW and ATT PTT using it out in the real world, the better I'll be able to choose a new carrier in 2013 when Sprint kills power to the Nextel iDEN base stations, or steals so much iDEN bandwidth that it'll be like the dark days of iDEN performance again back in 2006-2007.

Given the reduction in iDEN reliability & performance around southern CA over the past six months or so, I might have to abandon iDEN before 2013. The more real-world info I have before I'm forced to make a choice, the better off I'll be. It'll be on MY terms, not Danny Boy's terms.

I work for Procter & Gamble; we switched from Nextel to Verizon (sans the push-to-talk). The reception was terrible with Verizon. They never made any real attempt to boost the in-building signal like Nextel did many years ago (my plant is in a dead zone). We got rid of them and returned to Nextel. Like the other poster mentioned, Sprint put new repeaters and antennas up that were also capable of pulling in CDMA. They charged us nothing for the install and gave us a much cheaper price than Verizon offered.
