    The funny part about their PTT is that i went into a Verizon Store and
    asked them to demo the PTT function with two of their phones, they were
    un able to do this for some reason the phones would not connect to one
    another. Also many people report delays of 30-40 seconds with the PTT
    function for verizon. ALso how come in the comercieal during the can
    you hear me now thing no one replies? Just wondering Nextel has a 1
    second delay and i have never had any issues. Seems to me that you go
    with some one that had been doing it for a while and had worked all the
    kinks out.

    I went into an Nextel store and tried using one of their phones. No
    signal. It happens.


    >Also many people report delays of 30-40 seconds with the PTT
    >function for verizon.


    "Many" people? Who? First I've heard of this. A few second delay
    yes, but almost a minute? Come on..my leg is feeling a little
    stretched from all the pulling you're doing.


    > ALso how come in the comercieal during the can
    >you hear me now thing no one replies?


    ....hey..it's a *commercial*. People fly in commercials too. Get a
    clue...*it's not real*. DUH.

    ....On this I agree. Unless Verizon can prove to me that their PTT
    technology is equal or superior to Nextels, then I'll probably stick
    with Nextel. However, I ENCOURGE all the other cell phone companies
    to develop better and better PTT technology. It'll help keep Nextel
    competitive and drive prices, (especially PTT phones), down.

    One pet peeve I've got is that with the myriad of phone features, why
    can't they make a cost effective phone that:

    1. Has all the modern features of most phones.
    2. Has an excellent battery life.
    3. Has a built in camera.
    4. Is small.
    5. Is in color.
    6. Has a GPS
    7. *and* has PTT capability?

    Seems to me that the phones I've seen have some of the features above
    but not all of them.

    This isn't the first I've heard of it. I don't know how many places you
    read up on, but it's all over the internet.. HowardForums, etc. 30-40
    seconds to make the initial connection seems to be the norm for alot of
    people, while 8-10 seconds seems to be the norm for others. Obviously
    Verizon has a bunch of critters to work out of their system.

    It's just one of those things.. you know, how you can tell the person on the
    other side is saying "yes"... especially since the VZW guys next words are
    "good".

    Re: Verizon PTT





    I'll say this, despite the "delay" that is sooo heavily discussed here,
    the sound quality and dependability will outweigh these shortages.
    NEXTEL has been in the Direct Connect buisness for ohhh 10 years now
    correct? Verizon has been in the PTT business ohhh 14 days now? NEXTEL
    signal quality and dependability is awful. The garbled sound of a Direct
    Connect call and the frequently dropped cell phone calls made me switch.
    I have had the Verizon PTT for about 2 weeks, and I am more than
    pleased. Yes, they have some minor problems, but if you want to start a
    list, I bet my NEXTEL Problem list will be much longer. I have been
    calling customer service for Verizon due to a phone issue, and I even
    was able to talk to them on Sunday of a holiday weekend. Yes, I will pay
    a little more for Verizon, but knowing my money spent is going to a
    dependable network, will put me at ease. NEXTEL has it's place for now.
    Verizon PTT will bulldoze away their business in a couple of years when
    all these "contracts" are up. I can wait an extra couple of seconds to
    contact my other user knowing that my signal will get through. Everyone
    on this board that has one of these things knows the frustration of
    pressing the button, and waiting, and waiting and then the long
    beeeeppppppp... not available C0" . Let's all admit it, their is a bit
    of jealously against Verizon because they have something that's better
    than you have. So, take your batt and ball and go home...ask mommy to
    buy you a Verizon when your "sentence" is up and you are relesed from
    custody of your NEXTEL Contract !!!!!!

    Vealot lie - nextel is just as reliable and availablity has gotten better.
    No corelation between NWDC and reliability. More reliable now.

    Nextel works for me -

    Nextel works for me too. They do have times when the PTT quality is ****.
    Then they have times when I'm talking to someone 800 or 3000 miles away, and
    I'd swear they were in the same room.

    I mostly attribute the drop in service quality of late to overpopulation
    here in Tampa.

    Re: Verizon PTT

    Ok- we will all admit to one thing- Verizon has only been in the PTT
    business commercially for two weeks. Are you expecting me to believe
    that they bought and implemented the technology unseen, or were unable
    to uncover the very obvious problems that have occured since rollout?
    Or that they didn't have enough information available to them to train
    their salespeople properly on the biggest technological advance the
    COmpany has made in a lifetime? So what does this say about their R&D
    people, let alone the gods at Corporate? They rushed a product to
    market, that according to mutiple posts on this NG, other NG's and
    elswhere around the Net, DOES NOT WORK (or works poorly when it does),
    that there salespoeple are not trained to demo, and after the 'free
    trial perios' is over, will be more expensive than Nextel. Why would
    they do this- TO MAKE MONEY. If they gave two craps about their
    customers, they could have easily delayed rollout for a few months and
    deliverd a reliable, stable and usable product (if they are such a great
    Company, they shouldn't have to worry about churn if someone else comes
    out with the same thing in the mean time). Instead, they have fallen
    prey to the "Microsoft Syndrome- put out a product (no matter how
    crappy) and they will buy it because of our name. We'll get around to
    fixing it later, when the problems affect what's left of our
    credibility." And the fact that their crack R&D people apparently
    signed off on this rollout, and certainly the Corporate Gods signing off
    on this rollout, just proves that they are concerned about nothing other
    than putting more dollars in the coffers (to hell with quality).

    And I'm glad to hear that you are ok with waiting to make a connection
    because THE LATENCY ISSUE WILL NEVER GO AWAY. It is a by-product of the
    software, network and technology used in Verizon PTT. I defy anyone
    here to provide any documentation from Verizon stating that the latency
    will go away with time. You can't, because it does not exist. They
    won't say it, because the best they can promise is a reduction in the
    latency, not the elimination of it.

    And we will also all agree on another point you made- Nextel has been in
    the PTT busines for over 10 years. And instead of rushing products out,
    they have slowly tested products, and insured that the network was
    capable of supporting the product. Nationwide Direct Connect could have
    been available years ago- and years ago, it would have been a crappy
    product (just like Verizon PTT is now). It rolled out in stages, both
    to insure functionality and make sure the network could handle it. I
    realize that there a number of posts concerning problems since NWDC
    rolled out- it would seem that the product is a little more popular than
    expected, and call volumes are way up. Please try to tell me that this
    is the reason for the Verizon problems- I need a really good chuckle.

    And before I hear the line about Nextel needing to do something big to
    counter this marvel of Verizon technology, maybe their agreement over a
    year ago with Qualcomm for the exclusive U.S. rights to their CDMA PTT
    technology will dull the roar. Did I say over a year ago? Wow- that
    would be well in advance of Verizon rolling out their Push To Wait
    product. And did I say CDMA technology? That would mean that the day
    might come when I don't have to listen to the false sense of security
    people get when they bash the iDen network (What will you ***** about
    then?).

    The bottom line- bigger is not always better. I'll offer Microsoft up
    as the example again. Lukewarm, unreliable, buggy products that take
    great amounts of time to maintain. Anyone notice a similarity?

    Maybe it all depends on the market you're in, or the phone you have, who
    knows.. but I know my DC hasn't gotten any worse since the launch of NWDC.
    If anything, it's gotten better, but I can assure you it has not gotten
    worse.

    Re: Verizon PTT

    You forgot the part about MS releasing new products before the old products
    are even 100% fixed... I vauguely remember hearing about a major security
    flaw in Win98 that still to this day has NOT been issued a Fix (Patch or
    update, nothing)...... Wish I could remember the damn site I saw it on (a
    reliable one at that)...

    Voice Over IP... The Internet as a whole does not seem to be a reliable
    means of transferring voice in real time... even with high powered
    processors on both sides of the connection... I mean the Internet is
    still involved, right? VOIP seems to have been the CDMA service
    providers only option in the PTT arena... Any parallels drawn between
    Microsoft and CDMA PTT seem to be well warranted.

    Re: Verizon PTT

    Thanks for catching that- I had totally forgotten that aspect of the
    product marketing.

    And to steal and expand upon a line I used in a post a while back,
    Verizon has many of the attributes of some of our other large Corporate
    neighbors. McDonalds comes to mind. They serve up a product in record
    time that really isn't that good, the service is less than friendly or
    helpful, and both have a clown for a spokesman that talk to fictional
    friends. The only difference- in the McDonalds commercial, the
    Hamburglar talks back.
