Now I can tell all those who say 'cell phones cause cancer' to shove it!
And just maybe my phone will work in the microwave, or after the Apocalypse, the possibilities are endless.
Sweet radiation protected phone, your my friend.

Serious PTT users will always have Nextel for real, fast PTT. Even the Sprint Qchat phones are sub 1 second setup time.
