G'zOne PTT - Other Android phones to follow?


Feb 1, 2012, 11:39 AM
Apps like HeyTell and TiKL work nice on the Android (and iOS) phones but I miss the "real" PTT experience.
Hope other Android and iOS products on VZW get "real" PTT too.

If it's the same PTT tech that VZW used back in 2008-2010, you don't want it. It was laggy as hell, and it only worked reasonably well if you had a strong 3G signal. Go into a weak signal area (albeit still strong enough for regular voice calls to work), and you'd likely not be able to send or receive PTT. And, the problem was that the sender would have no idea that you couldn't get their message; they'd just think you were ignoring them.

If that's what they're still using and plan to roll out to the Commando and other devices, stay far, far away.

Remember awhile after Obama became president, some anonymous persons put up billboards with Dubya on them, smiling and saying "Miss me yet?".

I'm wondering if, after Sprint shuts down Nextel in 2013, there will appear billboards that say "Nextel. Done.| Miss me yet?"
