Dude, did iDen hurt you as a child or something? Your hatred for an inanimate cellular network is stunning.
No! iDen has been a complete anchor to Sprint since the Merger, and the record proves it....because Sprint has had to take resources from CDMA and apply it to a dying dilapidated network over the years, where now seeing the effects of that with Slow Data, Late to the Game 4G....
I'm just happy to see Sprint finally get on the Ball to Put iDen where it finally belongs IN THE GROUND.
This is the same network that Sprint purchased in 2005 and paid 36 billion dollars for.I wouold suffice to say that Sprint got hosed.The jokes on Sprint thay wrote the check.
No argument here....See difference was it was the completely inept, Misguided vision from a Joke of a CEO named Gary Forsee...
Luckly we're in the last stages of abolishing all signs of his royal screw up's......I know Hesse can't wait to wipe the sweat from his forehead...from all of this miracle work of saving Sprint...Forsee left Sprint for dead almost never to recover, like a dead deer on side the road...
I'm in San Diego and I know of 2 areas where towers have been turned off (I-5 freeway from downtown San Diego to National City, and Chula Vista on Telegraph Canyon Rd.)
I called SERO (Employee) Customer Care, they confirmed this (they asked for the zip code and told me the towers were decommissioned) I used to get full bars on those areas and now every time I drive home there is no signal in those same spots.
They are moving faster to turn off the towers!
yeah, and not to mention about 25% of the calls end up no voice being heard from one side, as well, im a san diego native, born n raise and i agree iden nextel service has gotten worse, theres an area near 905, where san ysidro old DMV was located at theres absolutely no more Nextel iden service however, on my evo lte sprint only phone it has increased signal strength greatly but at the cost of losing iden service
