Boost Mobile to phase out CDMA products – USA

According to FierceWireless, Boost Mobile, an MVNO division of Sprint Nextel, has started phasing out its CDMA-based products. Instead, the company has now shifted its focus towards the iDEN network.

Commenting on the development, Tatum Hawkins, a spokesperson from Boost Mobile, said: “Boost Mobile will still operate, support and service its CDMA-related products, but it will no longer promote them. If customers wish to sign up for CDMA-based services, they may still do so. However, Boost will no longer create new CDMA products and/or services, nor will it add new CDMA phones to its roster of devices.”
