    This seems like typical corporate bone-headedness. Why turn it off before you have something to replace it with? Hopefully, people will remeber this when considering whether to buy any Sprint/Nextel services in the future.

  2. I agree, with 3000 happy customers, they could not have gone wrong and well, what can you say about this!

  3. Did nextel own the spectrum on which the trial was running?

    If any one has some insight on this please post
