    I heard it has been improved alot. My buddy owns a Wireless Zone and they currently have two phones that can use push to talk. One is the Motorolla Adventure the other is called GZ One or something. He just got a business to switch over from there 15 line Nextel which service sucks for them and they are like Verizon a lot better I guess, so I dont know. I just got myself a blackberry which is awesome, you go online, email, check weather, listen to internet radio, whatever you want.

    We use push to talk. Ours is with Telus
    We have been using it for the last 5 years. Last year I went back to cell phones because it was allot cheaper. Hated it so much we canceled our contract with bell and went back to Telus. I love it, it is quick with allot less blaw blaw
    I thought using the push to talk I could get around the driving with a cell phone law. Not the case, I just got a ticket $125.00 and -3 points for using it while driving. :realmad: It has to be a walkie talkie that cannot receive phone calls to be exempt from the law.:cry:

    I have verizon for cell and Nextel for PTT. When I looked into Verizon for PTT I didnt like what I was hearing. I will reactivate the Nextel's in the next couple of months for the upcoming season.....unless something better comes up....

    I have AT&T PTT and it takes to long to connect to another phone. I have to push it and then sit there and wait for 20 to 30 seconds. By time it connects, they would have just picked up if I just noramally called them. I'm thinking about changing over to the new Verizon Fleet Track I believe its called, with the PTT, and GPS tracking.

    a few friends of mine have verizon ptt and they love it. it blows nextel outta water. i was told that verizon dosent advertize for it as much as they would like to because they have an agreement with nextel. they make more money off of renting space on the towers that they own to other cell companys then they do off of cell service
