Use of a cellphone or SMS for dispatch is a bad idea. Verizon now intends to remove the only functionality that makes SMS any different from a common carrier pager:
“We are eliminating the text messaging Delivery Acknowledgement notification service to our handsets to free up more of the network’s text messaging capacity. We consider the benefits to network capacity and
optimization outweigh the service’s continuation. By eliminating delivery acknowledgements, we are able to free up capacity on our network for more of our customers’ text messages, emails and voice calls.”

It was no good for primary dispatch even with that functionality.Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

Hahaha. I know. Just like the Motorola salesman told our ambulance they are required to go P25 digital by the end of 2008.Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
