Re: Deja Vu?

QChat worked well...hopefully they bring it back. Should do great when CDMA hits former MIRS bands.

QChat worked so great that's why they abandoned it?

Sprint is posturing to sell the iDEN network, plain and simple. Hesse has been trying to for over a year and now he's forcing the issue. Motorola didn't keep their iDEN business unit just to watch its biggest customer shut it down in 2 years. You can't just put wideband CDMA or LTE on the ESMR iDEN spectrum, in many cases the Nextel spectrum isn't even contiguous.

Sprint is posturing for a sale. That's going to help raise the cash for all all this other stuff.

What does the MIRS bandplan look like?

By which I mean, if there's 1.25MHz of contiguous spectrum, that's enough to make CDMA coverage on Sprint MUCH better...

Will they even be able to do anything in the South where Southern Linc iDEN operates since they have a lot of the SMR band down here?

Nextel oesn't share spectrum with SouthernLINC AFAIK so yes.
