Wasn't the whole point of their shutting down Nextel, to convince Nextel corporate subscribers to switch to Android w/ the push to talk capabilities via a Sprint app?

I have PTT on my plan, but I don't know if that flies for people who liked the old PTT phones.

They were supposed to be going for LTE on that band, but I stopped following whether that got approved or not.

They are rolling out lte in the 800 band. They already have 800 voice coverage active already here in Chicago

Interesting! I thought that they wouldn't have 800 MHz LTE until after the June iDEN shutdown.

Nice.

That part is true but they have the band for basically 3g and voice coverage but not lte yet. But the 800 band helped fill holes sprint had

That's interesting since I thought no current device on Sprint has 800MHz compatibility yet. If I'm not mistaken, many (if not all) are bound to 1900MHz for the time being. iDEN hasn't been fully decommissioned yet.

EDIT: Looks like 800MHz devices are thought to roll out later this year. The only current device fully supporting is the iP5. SGS3 supports 1X/EVDO on 800MHz, but not LTE.
