I think they will. > 95% of sprint direct connect customers are business accounts, some with hundreds of devices limited to company only direct connect contacts. They can also be set up to transit up to 500 at one time for conference.
I wonder if Elon Musk has this so he can chew out hundreds of engineers and managers semi publicly and simultaneously at the push of a button
Sprint business accounts can also have these direct connect phones at low cost with the phone portion disabled. $15 mo per direct connect service only devices, but you have to have a minimal phone account that costs a lot for the actual telephone part.
I am looking at the Keyocerya dura force smartphone, mil spec, water immersion to 6.5 meters? pretty rugged on impact too. Brother has the Verizon version of it. ( no direct connect)
And a keyosera flip phone for mom. Lots of the sprint flip phone w/ direct connect cheap on E bay.
Sprint still has a Frankenstein blackberry style phone with keyboard available. Some crackberry addicts just cant let go . RIM doesn't manufacturer it.
Mom with a smart phone isn't going to happen. Pushing a button for instant contact with her kids is about the only way she will communicate these days. It seems to be a chore for her to even dial a landline phone.
