Hi, The story of Nextel is a long one. Ill try to make it breif. Nextel built its own cell network , called iDEN (different than both CDMA or GSM). Nextel created a pre paid division, Boost Mobile. Sprint acquired Nextel. (and boost) Sprint phases out Nextel, its devices, and begins to shut down the iDEN cell towers in favor of Sprints oqn CDMA network. Chrip is officially DEAD, never to return.
Side note: there are some, very rare PPT (push to talk) phones available on Sprint (and Verizon even) but you can only PPT people with the same carrier and they must also have a PPT phone.
Can yall please bring back the chirp phones.. I love them... Thats like the motorolla razor phone that everybody had now its Iphone's... Bring back the chirp jus different model an version please i bet ppl stop buying iPhones
