Sprint today indicated that some of its Direct Connect subscribers may not have access to the push-to-talk service. In a statement emailed to Phone Scoop, a Sprint spokesperson said, "Due to a temporary equipment disruption, some Sprint Direct Connect customers may be experiencing an interruption in their push-to-talk services. Our network engineers are aggressively working on the situation and we hope to have service fully restored as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this might be causing our customers at this time." Sprint did not say how many customers are being affected by the issue, nor when the issue may be resolved. The Direct Connect service uses CDMA-based technology to power walkie-talkie conversations. It is replacing the outgoing iDEN PTT network, which will be fully discontinued by June 2013.
