Sprint PCS announced yesterday that its entire nationwide PCS network is now E911 Phase II compatible. Sprint is the first national carrier to reach this milestone. In order for E911 Phase II service to be operational in individual communities, upgrades still must be made by both local telephone companies and Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), and PSAPs must request a connection to Sprint's E911 system. Sprint is also exploring the possibility of offering opt-in location-based services. Sprint's E911 system is based on handset-based GPS technology. The company has sold over one million GPS-enabled handsets since it was the first carrier to offer one in October 2001.
