Nextel Coverage Map (detailed)

Why doesn't Sprint tout International Coverage with their Waki-Talki services?

My dad is going to get the Android iDEN device this summer, switching over from AT&T.

Coverage is larger than Verizons!

Okay so they have some international iDEN PTT.

But come on, you can't beat Verizon for USA PTT coverage area!

Verizon PTT as of 4/1/2010:

Note: The darker green is EVDO REV A PTT. Notice, they do have HI too.

Forget about international, when Sprint/Nextel can't even cover hardly any of the USA!

Re: Nextel Coverage Map (detailed)

That Sprint map is missing a lot of coverage.  There are a lot of areas with CDMA PTT that aren't on that map.  Of course PTT on CDMA is pointless since you can't buy a phone from Sprint with that.  My V950 broke and they are going to try to get a replacement.  It is like those phones just disappeared when they discontinued them.  Like I told the Sprint rep once if Sprint doesn't come up with more rugged CDMA phones in the future I'm going to be forced to switch to Verizon.  Are you listening Sprint?  Get some more rugged CDMA phones.

You are correct thought that Sprint/Nextel can't compete with Verizon on PTT coverage.  The only thing that IDEN has going for it is reliability of PTT and setup times.

Looks like Sprint did not invest in expanding iDEN coverage since the marriage.  Glad to see my money from my over-priced service is going to good use.  Please note the sarcasm

But getting back to Delta's original post: "Why doesn't Sprint tout International Coverage with their Walkie-Talkie services?"

>>> Exactly what is Verizon's international PTT coverage? ATT's?
