AT&T continues its march on SDC: NextMail-like apps
Today AT&T announced "pdvConnect" with a suite of features & capabilities that sound just like Nextel's NextMail offerings. I'm guessing since AT&T calls it "pdvConnect" that they have also contracted with Pacific Data Vision ("PDV") to provide these same services for AT&T users.

RE: "It seems as though a lot of effort is going into competing with Nextel PTT these days. This should speak volumes to all the naysayers who claim the Nextel business model is outdated."
> That's true, at least on AT&T's part, although I have seen absolutely no effort on Verizon's part. AT&T is smart to embrace PDV's workflow products, a boon to worker efficiency in many industries (and of course Nextel recognized those efficiencies & implemented NextMail waaaay back in 2004, a mere nine years ahead of any other carrier).
Because the $20/line/mo Nextel penalty is more than I can sto...
I purchased a Kyocera Dura XT last November. I can say mine does work in 1X and roaming areas, but takes about three seconds to initially connect.
I haven't tried any PTT solutions lately from the other guys. I remember back in 2010, we tried Verizon's original PTT. It was horridly slow.
About two weeks ago, another software update was downloaded onto my phone. Since then, I've gone that length of time without having to reboot. I think they're getting closer.
