    There has been some talk about the possibly of a Sprint & Nextel merger on the news groups. I don't think it will happen. Anyone else?

    What!? Sprint and Nextel no way, they operate 2 totally different services with different technologies and even focus on a different customer base. I don't see this one happening at all.

    I hear ya. Some of the reasons given are that Nextel would eventually need to convert to CDMA and that Sprint will be running out of 1900 MHZ spectrum and would need 800 MHZ. Also Sprint will be implementing a direct connect type of feature similar to Nextel's. It's still a ridiculous rumor though.

    How did this rumor start anyway? I'm wondering where people heard this from. I'd like to see some actually evidence myself, although I doubt there is any.
