As previously announced, Sprint is scheduled to shut down its Nextel iDEN network on June 30 — starting immediately at 12:01am. Voice (including 911), push-to-talk, and data services will cease functioning. The last full day of service for iDEN customers will be June 29. During these final days, Sprint is pushing hard to get all users migrated over to Sprint's Direct Connect service, which they say has ‘three times the push-to-talk coverage area compared to iDEN.'
