Sprint has been making announcements lately about Open Networking. Due to a class-action lawsuit Sprint PCS customers will get the unlock code for Sprint - not Nextel - phones. That means Sprint customers can take thier phone to Alltel or VZW.
The part I like is that by settling, Sprint has opened the door. With T-Mobile and ATT also facing class-action lawsuits about locked phones, we may see some more unlocking.
Sprint also made mention that XOHM will be open access. We'll see what that means as it rolls out next quarter.
