Urban Identifiers (more commonly Urban IDs) are the regionally-assigned initial digits of a DirectConnect number (technically an iDEN Universal Fleet Member Identifier). Identifiers assigned by Nextel in the United States and Mike in Canada begin with three digits, while numbers assigned by NII (formerly Nextel International) begin with two digits. Urban Identifiers generally cover fairly broad geographic areas.

Exceptions

Today, subscribers to Mike iDEN service in Canada and Sprint CDMA-based QChat phones are assigned, by default, DirectConnect numbers which match their PTN (personal telephone number). This, therefore, means that any area code in the United States or Canada may also currently be in use as a pseudo-Urban Identifier. Additionally, Mike uses the numbers 403 and 905 as Urban Identifiers, which match NANPA area codes assigned in Alberta and Ontario, for Mike subscribers who need to be assigned to public or private fleets or who do not wish to use their PTN number as their PTT number.

In most cases,Sprint phones offer the Single Number feature which provides the option of using your mobile phone number as your Direct Connect® (DC) number.

Note: If the last 4 digits of your mobile phone number start with a 0, you may not be eligible for aSingle Number.

Dialing to a Single Number

If you use the Single Number option, any user with a capable Sprint phone would just dial your mobile number and push the Direct Connect button to make aDirect Connect call. Any Nextel or PowerSource™ user would dial the 10-digit number with stars (*) where the dashes usually go. For example, 999*555*1212.

DC Call Forwarding

If you choose to use a Single Number and had a separate DC number, calls to your original DC number will automatically be forwarded to your new DC number. When you make aDirect Connect call to a Nextel or PowerSource phone, your original DC number will display on the recipient's phone. Even if the recipient has your Single Number in his directory, your name will not be displayed; only your original DC number will be displayed. If you prefer to have your Single Number displayed, please call Customer Care and ask that the automatic Call Forward feature be turned off.

Note: This feature is available on Sprint phones only.
