Exactly 1 minute ago, at 12:01 a.m. , Sprint decommissioned Nextel’s iDEN service.
It pulled the big plug. Flipped off the lights. Took its toys and went home.
No more beep-beep-beep. No more programming of weird handset codes to identify group users.
In fact, no more service if you have a Sprint iDEN boat anchor and didn’t switch over to Sprint or another carrier prior to 60 seconds ago.
Hey, Sprint warned you this was happening, so don’t act surprised. That said, if you woke up today and find your beep-beep-beep going annnnnn-annnnnn-annnnnn, well, good luck.
Goodbye Nextmai ®… goodbye Chirp®… goodbye Priority Connect®…goodbye all those other cute Nextel registered trademarks!
iDEN we hardly knew ya.
