Sprint has reiterated that it plans to shutdown its iDEN network within the next 60 days. The carrier announced in May 2012 that it would phase out iDEN and switch to a network strategy that relies on 4G LTE and CDMA, and the shutdown is now imminent. Sprint has spent the past year notifying customers that they must switch to Direct Connect in order continue service. Beginning June 30, 2013, Sprint will begin an immediate shutdown of iDEN that disables all talk and data services, including 9-1-1 calls. Customers have until June 29 to migrate their accounts before their devices will be rendered obsolete.
