Replying to: This changes everything... by altryan
This might even lead to manufacturers creating phones that are cross network compatable one set of radios for GSM, one set for CDMA, LTE, WiMAX, iDEN (until it dies). There would be a setting in the phone to enable the phone to search for one network type at a time, (as not to kill battery life). I would be all for this. Only our job gets harder. How resistant do you think people are going to be to the change! Their phone prices are going to start at more than $200. With the economy I am just not sure how feasable this type of a change will be, without killing the industry. On the other hand, carriers would be more liquid in terms of assets, as they don't have to tie up all the money in phone inventory.
It will be interesting either way to see how everything shakes out!
