Exclamation Blackberry 8100

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if the Blackberry 8100 will be for Nextel? I see some of the pics on different website and it says Cingular on the screen shots. Anyone know any details?

Thanks,
Tyler

The most likely scenario is that there will never be another iDEN BlackBerry device for Sprint.

T-Mobile USA has an exclusive on the 8100 for 60-90 days, at which point it will be released by Cingular. The pictures you have seen are of a T-Mobile branded device that is unlocked and has a Cingular SIM card in it.

A CDMA variant of the 8100 for Sprint's CDMA network might be possible within a year of the release on the GSM networks.

He said not another iDEN BlackBerry. He is speculating that Sprint/Nextel will phase out the Nextel (iDEN) network and move over to the Sprint (CDMA) network.

They are phasing out iDEN from what I've heard.

For the moment,

Sprint/Nextel has no plans to release anymore blackberrys for the iDEN (Nextel) side.

Nope, totally false. Sprint/Nextel is spending 80billion in two years to revamp and work on the network. It should be an even split towards the CDMA/iDEN.

They won't and probably never will. We'll, now that PTT is standardize, who knows, but if they were, I'm sure it would be in the far far future. It would be madness, and extremely hard for them to try to switch everyone. Look now, Nextel (iDEN) is having the worst of luck trying to get people off (still) Non-GPS phones. They are trying everyone, but still millions are using non-gps phones on iDEN, phones that are well over 5 years, 10 years even. Know how many people out there are still using i95/i90/i60? Hell, there are still those that use i1000s. Lots of em.

My i90 and my i1000 still work great, have a little tape on the hinges, but work great!

You're wrong in saying that the iDEN network is not going away. It is.

We could argue about it until we're both blue in the face, but it would do no good.
