All devices on Sprint Nextel's mobile network to be provisioned and managed using mFormation technology

EDISON, N.J. -- Sprint Nextel, North America's most innovative leading telecommunications company, is to use technology from mFormation[R] Technologies Inc., the market leader in mobile device management (MDM) software, to provide seamless device management capabilities to all of Sprint Nextel's mobile subscribers.

Sprint Nextel will use the technology to remotely provision, configure, diagnose and manage feature phones and smart devices throughout all phases of their life.
