OK, let's assume for the sake of discussion your theory is correct, no one cares about PTT, all they want is smartphones.

Why then, if Sprint is so good, why wouldn't the Nextel customers who no longer care for PTT just stay with Sprint and trade in for a Sprint smartphone?

Why are so many leaving Sprint for VZ & ATT when they could more easily stick with Sprint and just "trade up" from their PTT handsets to CDMA or WiMax smartphones at Sprint?

Why is it that they all want is to get away from Sprint, and why is it that Sprint is effectively powerless to keep them?

My guess would be that folks who have had Nextel for years probably assume that Sprint's coverage is about the same. Since the average cellphone customer is not a tech junkie, they probably don't know that you can roam in areas where their Nextel phone simply said "no service". that being the case, who wants just a regular phone with little to no rural coverage? The perception is that at&t and Verizon have better coverage.
