QChat? People still use that? Considering every device that it came on is dead and discontinued, Sprint has made little effort to upgrade the network like they have told you.

Sprint Direct Connect is an app, and completely different than QChat as you knew it. This is essentially a rebadged Push to Talk App, like TiKL or Voxer is and again, still only works on a few devices, and is as useless as analog is today.

If you are looking for a REAL solution, as many Nextel subscribers have, then I suggest AT&T as their PTT network is continuously upgraded left and right. They do use an app, but it is on more devices and the network doesnt bog down like Sprint does when people are using it, since AT&T is using HSPA+ a technology more efficient and superior to EVDO.
