Sprint today announced that customers using its CDMA-based Direct Connect service can now conduct walkie-talkie conversations with iDEN-based push-to-talk users in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, and Chile. Sprint is offering unlimited PTT calling for $10 per month, as well as several less expensive options. Sprint is in the process of phasing out its iDEN network in favor of its CDMA network. Its iDEN network will be fully decommissioned by 2013. The CDMA-based PTT Direct Connect Service is a replacement technology and is available on a number of handsets.

Nothing new here

I have been able to direct connect everyone I used to overseas for almost three months already with my CDMA PTT phone. Also those countries are also switching to a 3G PTT, I wanna know if those are going to still work.
Yes they will still work once they transition. However if you travel to those countries right now 3G PTT roaming is not yet supported but it will come in the near future.
