This would be a plausible and workable theory.
Nextel push to talk on IDEN networks, which is already working a+ but move
all voice and phone calls and data to GSM networks. The end result even more
capacity for PTT, larger footprint, and more cellular business. And a
combined GSM & IDEN phone would quite easy to bring to market.

The hardest part would be migrating everyone, but this would not have to be
done right away.
