I have to ask, "WTF, Sprint?" Why have you not done ANYTHING with Nextel since picking up the network?
If Nextel was still independent, they would have developed their own 3G/4G network by now. Sprint, on the other hand, has done absolutely nothing with Nextel. They seem embarrassed by it.
The 3G/iDEN "hybrid" phones did work, BTW. My ic902 has been a great phone and it works better than any other Sprint phone out there. I just wish they would list the complaints that people had with the technology.
In short, if the phone is not at least 3G, then Sprint might as well NOT RELEASE it. Keep your junk, and offer us something that works, Sprint!!!
