    Re: Push to Talk



    Okay, would someone please explain to me what the attraction is for PTT?
    What am I missing?

    Is it just like a walkie-talkie, where conversation is pure simplex
    (only one person can talk at a time, and you have to be pushing the
    button in order to transmit)? If so -- why are folks interested in
    this? Is it nostalgia for the days you were 12 years old and a
    walkie-talkie seemed really cool? Does it come with a pack of Bazooka
    bubble gum?

    Sprint is supposed to have full duplex on their PTT.

    Push to talk Or "Ready Link" is not duplex..Only one person can talk at
    a time.

    It seems by Nextel's experience, that PTT is pretty much good only for
    business apps. keeping in immediate touch with employees. Do you want
    your sweet talk to your wife or girlfriend being heard within 15-20 feet
    using PTT?

    It is certainly designed for business- I think everybody tends to forget
    that. Although my wife and I use it all of the time- and not in
    speakerphone mode (another misconception).

    No, it'll come with a rate plan that costs an extra $20/month, and so it
    has definite attraction for Sprint, desparate as it is for additional
    revenue since SprintPCS has NEVER made a profit.

    If that were true, then there would be no reaosn to have PTT. Sprint
    has that development *now* on some of their phones. It's called
    "speakerphone."

    Obviously better than you're hearing. You got a url, go for it.
    Otherwise I'm through with this thread.


    Which issue. Nextel and Verizon charge $20/month extra. Sprint press
    releases have said it'll be "competitively priced" which translate to
    same premium.

    I hope you're not claiming that SprintPCS has EVER made a profit.

    NONSENSE. You're happy to put out your SPIN until you're called on it, and then
    just like Vargas you retreat behind "confidentiallity". You happily release
    confidential information on PRLs.

    PTT will add $20/month to a Sprint phone bill. Or will it be a cost recovery
    fee instead??
