The network formerly known as Nextel has been shut down for quite a while now, I think 6-30-13 was their nationwide turn off date. I know many of the sites are still there. Some don't have power anymore and buildings are stripped but I think Sprint may have plans for some of them. I only know of one in my area where the antennas, lines, and shelter were completely removed. I read an article discussing Sprint using all those 800 MHz channels put together to make a CDMA or LTE channel. Not sure of any details.
