    That's not Sprint PCS, that's an affiliate.

    This whole Sprint affiliate battle is going to be interesting. It could
    either make or break Sprint. If the courts rule in Sprints favor, they
    could bail out their busted affiliates and end up owning more of their
    own network at pennies on the dollar. However if courts rule against
    Sprint, it could be the final straw in their already financially
    troubled situation.

    I'm just speculating here, but i'm thinking if things get bad for Sprint
    that would make them ripe for an obvious takover. Not by Verizon, but
    by the rich step-child hiding in the corner.

    Nextel.....

    Could take years to settle however, and by then economics may have
    changed one way or the other.

    Analgous case going on now with Marriott and some of their afilliates.

    Not Nextel. Sprint PCS has already bailed them out with their paten
    renewal last year (or the year ago?) and Nextel would have nothing to
    gain.

    Verizon would be the #1 suspect for a takeover, but I doubt the FCC
    would allow it, it would make them too big and powerful.

    I can see Sprint PCS merginv with some of the better off affiliates, I'm
    pretty sure the FCC would allow that and would help out all parties
    involved.

    You are certainly right about that. A year ago this time i would have
    bet good money we would have already seen a major merger by now, but as
    of yet no merger and the rumors seem to have died down about impending
    mergers.

    bankrupcy.

    Nextel's IDEN digital network is completely and technically
    not compatible with Sprint's, nor anyone elses CDMA, GSM,
    or TDMA network.
    For them to acquire Sprint or anyone else, for that matter,
    would entail billions of dollars for network conversions.

    Nextel isn't THAT rich. ---John

    But they have made some deals that might make this all a reality.
    Remember the deal with Qualcomm that gave Nextel exclusive rights to
    Qualcomm's CDMA Push-To-Talk technology? Mighty strange thing for a
    company to do if they weren't thinking of a platform switch.

    Very simple really. You just keep running Sprint as separate entity for
    a couple of yeras, meanwhile get Motorola to make you a dual mode phone
    - IDEN-CDMA; in the same way that AT&T is now deploying dual mode
    TDMA-GSM phones.

    Since no one else has a 1900MHz CDMA Network, any one that wants to buy
    SprintPCS would have to use that sort of strategy.

    Nextels going to have to switch their network no matter what they do.
    They will either go the CDMA route or the GSM route. It's not a
    question of "if" it's a question on "when".

    I think you're on track Phil...But just to clarify, a couple of pretty
    big chunks of Verizons network is 1900, and thats why they have gone to
    the Tri-Mode handsets in the past few years.
