Re: HD voice is 1x advanced
said by elefante72:No, it will be on the 1900mhz PCS band as well. Per PRL design, the 800SMR band capable devices will scan the PCS channels for 1x(voice/text) connectivity first. If the phone is unable to acquire, it will scan the 800SMR band for 1x connectivity. That way only the phones that need the building penetration at the time will be on the 800SMR band. There's plenty of room on the PCS band for everyone, but not so much on the 800SMR band.
I was wrong. It look like they are going to put it in the 800Mhz spectrum, not the 1900. Makes sense for better building penetration.
You'd never get to use HD voice if both phones had to support it, both phones in a network vision completed area, and both phones in a place where their phone could not acquire a PCS signal from the tower. Definitely not the design.

Re: Woohoo, hold music
said by vpoko:Exactly, however, you will be able to get it cell to cell and it is also starting to be seen more in VoIP setups. So start rolling it out now and as the backend matures, then it will be available.
I don't think they ever will. POTS is sampled at 8 kHz, which means (per the Nyquist theorem) that signals above half that (4 Hz) will be aliased, reducing fidelity. Unless POTS is replaced by something else (in which case it won't be POTS), that will remain a limit.

people actually talk on the phone still?
said by en103:I do not even use it for email.
Same here - Text/SMS is a waste of time/money, IMHO. I'll use email with a data package, but not text.
Sprint has always had good audio quality - this appears to be keeping the standard.
