AT&T Enhanced PTT

I've been a Nextel customer for ten years. I keep wondering when, or perhaps even if, Sprint will get serious about keeping their lead in the PTT arena.

AT&T is obviously timing their enhancements to their PTT service to lure customers away from Sprint as the Nextel iDEN network winds down. I don't think AT&T's PTT will ever equal Nextel's iDEN PTT experience, but the huge advantage AT&T has is their strong customer base of businesses, due to (a) their large footprint in the US, and (b) the fact that their GSM voice & data service roams globally better than any other carrier's offering, at least for those traveling to the EU on business.

That global roaming ability is already a huge draw to businesses, and I can see where that well-est...
If phones like the Galaxy S III had SDC, it would really launch the service for non-business users and would become very popular.
