Replying to: Direct Connect on Sprint by gloopey1
Re: Direct Connect on Sprint
I thought the new Sprint Direct Connect was in the 1900MHz as well, I didn't know SDC was just using the 850 MHz region. But looking at the CURRENT SDC coverage (dark orange) compared to current iDEN DC coverage, I can see your point:

PhoneScoop's initial review of the Duramax shows it is rated for 800/850/1900 MHz:
Anyhow, supposedly yesterday (Sunday, Oct 02) was the day they "throw the switch" to turn on the "new" Sprint Direct Connect. From Sprint's own Community website: "Sunday, Oct. 2, will be a key milestone in Sprint history â€“ the company is launching Sprint Direct Connect service!"

ANd here's the official Sprint News Release page:

Why would they pick a SUNDAY to initiate what is supposed to be the once-and-for-all replacement for iDEN?
Another typical failure-to-execute, for which Sprint is justifiably famous. How embarrasing...it's just a whimper...
