I see very little discussion about PCS here.

Personally I like Sprint's wireless service and signed up for it myself. Mycroft says the Nokia 6185 is selling like hotcakes and pretty much those sales must be via Sprint. Which implies (as if we didn't know) PCS is signing up customers hand over fist.

I saw Mycroft post that he had invested in VSTR, seeing compelling things that they are doing, and thinking that also they may be a buyout candidate (by who? GSM brethren Vodaphone/Airtouch? They are on the west coast already)

Basically I still need to research some numbers but was wondering why the lack of interest (on this board) of PCS? Is there something about them I should know? And Mycroft, I cannot locate your VSTR info anymore. Can you recall where you posted it? Or could you please summarize here?

Both VSTR and PCS are well into losing money at an astonishing rate; at least Qualcomm is making a profit! I can see why people like them along with Nokia; companies in a growing industry that have a proven profitable business model!
