Direct Connect on Sprint

by gloopey1    Oct 3, 2011, 12:34 PM

Other than the fact that the new Sprint DC phones utilize the 800 ESMR band, what essentially is different between this QChat and the one of 2008?

Looking at the map, the coverage from 2008 compared to now is the same, the way the system works is the same (VOIP), the features are the same, etc. The only two things that have changed are the branding (Sprint DC rather than Nextel DC) and the 800 band. Is this bandwidth even available anywhere for these phones? Basically, it looks like the phone has a radio in it that it cannot currently utilize anywhere. If that isthe case, the phone will be obsolete before it has a connection to the lower frequency.
