So, I was looking at OLAM today and noticed that both of my Nextel lines are eligible for upgrades (they shouldn't be, but I'm not complaining).
I noticed that the Sprint website is still offering iDEN handsets. I imagine the early upgrade is to get me to convert to SDC, but I wonder what would happen if I simply bought another iDEN handset. Or used that line's upgrade for another line? Would I be offered another early 'upgrade' down the road?
“Right now, I’m glad we have the iDEN network,” Hesse said. “I wouldn’t have said that 18 months ago, but I am now ... from a financial perspective.”
NEXTEL. Done. I guess that's "Life at SprintSpeed"

I stopped in to a Sprint Corporate store today and here's the scoop . . .
My iDEN lines are Ok to upgrade, but not to another iDEN phone. However, they are beginning to sweeten the pot a bit. They offered me the Admiral or the EVO 3D for 99 cents and also the Epic 4g Touch for $50.
The guy actually talked me out of upgrading now and said there will be even better offers to sway me away from iDEN. It was strange that they didn't offer a discount on the rest of the SDC phones.
If you want direct connect get the Admiral. If you are in a good Sprint PCS area, the SDC works just as well as iDEN for the most part.
They probably will allow you to upgrade to the new Evo 4G LTE or Nexus though so hold off if DC isn't that important
mod edited: your rant that I've removed has it's own thread, and had absolutely nothing to do with answering the question being asked in this thread. Please refrain from posting the same thing numerous times over, as it is against the rules. Oh, and leave out anything that could be considered a personal attack too.
