Before we bought our Kyocera Torque phones, we asked for a demo of Direct Connect Now (Sprint's Android PTT app). Even though I had called the store in the AM and told them we'd drop by in the PM to see the demo, they had forgotten to download it, and once they got it downloaded, they didn't seem to know how to demo it properly.
