    Well I finally made the switch from Nextel to Verizon. Here is the
    deal......

    Verizon's initial connect time is approximately 2 Seconds then nearly
    instant after that. I can use it in my house. Big plus over Nextel as I
    would have no service displayed on the screen most of the time. Verizon PTT
    is by far HANDS DOWN Clearer than Nextel.

    2 THUMBS UP to Verizon. Great job. IMHO once Verizon advertises their PTT
    and people see that it is much improved over their first rollout I believe
    that Nextel will lose market share quickly. Go VERIZON!!!

    Good, maybe if a lot of people leave Nextel, then I will stop getting
    all the busy signals. You are the 1st person to like the Verizon PTT.
    People I have met say it is much slower than Nextel. I once talked to
    someone in Hawaii from Florida and the response was instant with Nextel.
    IMHO Nextel's problem is too many people are trying to use their service
    now. I have been with them for about 10 years and early on their service
    was superior to any other service in South East Florida. They have to
    either provide upgrade or have fewer subscribers. Thanks for helping us out.

    does Direct Connect work between a Verizon and a Nextel phone?

    Re: Swithched to Verizon PTT

    You consider 2 Seconds "MUCH SLOWER" I'll take a two second initial connect
    that is clear than an INSTANT GARBLED Message. I just talked from PA to CA
    with the Verizon PTT. Guess what. Completely Clear with no delay. CAN YOU
    HEAR ME NOW?

    Re: Swithched to Verizon PTT

    No, they are 2 different technologies. Nextel is a 2-way radio based
    system, where Verizon is VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol)

    Motorola is father to both systems. It originated the Iden system (Nextel)
    and purchased the VOIP software rights that Verizon is using.

    Re: Swithched to Verizon PTT

    One thing to remember with Nextel Vs. Verizon. Nextel Direct Connect works
    everywhere Nextel Cell works. The same cannot be said with Verizon. They
    still have analog sites around the country and their PTW requires a digital
    connection...

    But this doesn't have any meaning until you compare
    the Nextel coverage with VZW digital coverage.

    Re: Swithched to Verizon PTT

    I simply do not believe this. I tried verizon's PTT and it took 15
    seconds to connect.
    The only way it could take 2 seconds is if it was already connected.

    Try hitting end on both phones then try your Verizon PTT. I bet it
    takes much longer than 2 seconds.

    ****
    One thing that that readers should be aware of is that handset will
    beep as if the message is instantly sent, but the person RECEIVING the
    ptt message will hear it 15 seconds later. The immediate beep make the
    sender feel as if the PTT message is being immediately sent.

    So again - Put both phones next to each other and hit END to ensure the
    connection is closed. Push one PTT button and say hello. Count 15
    seconds then you'll hear it. After that it works pretty fast. But in
    my opinion, the 15 second delay is not a true PTT.

    If anyone is considering Verizon PTT, I suggest you try it in the
    store first. Be sure to hit end on both phones, then try the PTT with
    two adjacent phones.

    Re: Swithched to Verizon PTT

    OK, I tried your test. The longest time it took with both phones sitting
    side by side was 7 Seconds. Yep, 7 Seconds. That's all. No longer. And
    Guess what? You know that garbled transmission that you get quite frequently
    using the Nextel DC? I've been using the Verizon Push to Talk pretty
    heavily over the past two days and guess what? That's right! NO GARBLED
    TRANSMISSIONS!!! I will take a slight delay over a 45% of the time Nextel
    garbled transmission. Sorry Guys, Verizon is headed in the right direction.
    I'm sure the initial delay will only get shorter. And one other thing. The
    Verizon cell phone the VX4700 is spectacular. Very very clear when making
    cell calls. All I can say is, CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW!!!

    Ahh.....Let me tell you how WE tested it...from Northwoods Mall on the N
    side of Charleston SC to the Citadel Mall on the S side of Charleston....

    Have the sales personae call the other store's phone on landline where
    there isn't even any digital cellular delay they can excuse the delay with.
    Now that you have the remote store on the phone, Press the PTT on his group
    at your end and listen on the phone for HIS phone to beep. While listening
    to him talking on the landline with HIS PTT pushed down, time how long it
    takes to hear him on your PTT phone...

    While monitoring the landline so you can hear yourself and him talking back
    to you, keep the PTT moving back and forth and you'll have an actual
    realtime test of how well...or bad...it works.

    VoIP is never going to be a trunked radio system like iDen which was
    designed for it. The iDen hardware, if you have a signal which is another
    matter entirely, wins every time.

    Re: Swithched to Verizon PTT

    The fastest time for me was 15 seconds.

    All I can tell the users considering either Nextel or Verizon is to try
    before you buy.
    My experiences show that the verizon PTT was very poor.

    So you are saying you would rather have "No Service" from Nextel than to be
    able to make an analog call in remote areas on Verizon?

    Re: Swithched to Verizon PTT

    That is a good point. I have clearly stated in my previous posts that
    the verizon coverage is better than nextel.

    I am trying make it clear that Verizon's PTT is NOT nearly as good as
    Nextel's PTT. I should go to the store and video tape it so people can
    see what I mean.

    I have tried both. I use Nextel for my business line and Verizon for
    my personal usage.
