Nextel Ringtones

Sprint Nextel Corporation NYSE: S, headquartered in Reston, Virginia, is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the United States. It operates the third largest wireless network in the U.S. with nearly 44 million subscribers, under the Sprint PCS and Nextel brands--behind Cingular and Verizon Wireless. It also operates landline and long distance business, as well as several units that provide businesses and governments with communications services. The company, formerly known as Sprint Corporation, was created from the purchase of NEXTEL Communications by Sprint, though the deal was billed as a merger of equals.

The company maintains an operational headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas.

Nextel is the former wireless brand of NEXTEL Communications, and it operates on Motorola's iDEN protocol that uses time division multiple access (TDMA) technology. Unlike other cellular operators, Nextel utilizes the specialized mobile radio band (SMR) and was one of the first operators in the United States to offer a national digital cellular coverage footprint.

Some of Nextel's special features include its push to talk feature, which simulates the half-duplex operation of a two-way radio. A downside of this sole-source (Motorola) and proprietary standard has been a lack of innovation in handset size and weight, compared to mobile telephony industry trends, though this too is changing.

The Nextel brand has over 16.1 million U.S. subscribers, particularly popular in the south.

Initially, speculation that current Nextel subscribers would be required to replace their existing handsets due to incompatibility between Nextel technology and Sprint technology was put forth. However, Sprint Nextel has assured its customers that both the current iDEN and CDMA technologies will continue to be supported and that dual-band phones are being researched to work on both networks simultaneously.

The push-to-talk feature with which Nextel has gained its fame is also expected to be released on the CDMA network in 2006 when Sprint deploys their successor to the first phase of their high speed wireless network EV-DO. The new push to talk platform will be based on Qualcomm's Qchat product, which has been under development between Nextel and Qualcomm since January 2002. Currenty Sprint PCS has a push-to-talk service called ReadyLink which is based on the SIP VoIP protocol but cannot make or receive calls with the iDen based PTT system.

By 2010, Sprint Nextel plans to absorb the Nextel brand into the Sprint PCS brand.
