Direct Connect DOES utilize packet data for transmission.
Straight from Motorola.com:
"In addition, iDEN technology uses packet data, allowing for faster transmission of information, maximizing channel capacity and maintaining a constant Internet connection. For users, this translates to high voice quality, lower latency, dependable communications and literally instant access."
Additionally, as was mentioned before, QChat is the system that will replace both Direct Connect and ReadyLink. After that system comes online, you will begin to see the iDEN system get turned off.
