    Since Sprint has acquired Nextel, what technology is used by Nextel? Is it

    I wonder if Sprint will attempt to convert the NExtel purchase to CDMA?

    iDEN is an aging technology and Nextel is said to already have an iDEN to CDMA
    bridge and wants to migrate to CDMA (over time). It's one of the reasons the
    Sprint-Nextel merger is a good idea from the carriers' points of view.

    of course dual band?

    Never! That would enable customers to jump more easily from one carrier to
    another--like back in the analog days, when the A and B carriers used the
    same technology.
