It's not about the time spent dialing - it's about the time spent in silence. The great thing about PTT is that pushing the PTT button instantly connects you with the last person you talked to.

It's like being in the same room with someone, and just turning your head toward them and talking. It's natural. It's as close as you can get to that kind of convenience, without actually being in the same room.

Have you ever worked with someone where you were actively working together, but most of the time was actually silence? just picked up your head every few minutes to ask a question or discuss something?

That describes a lot of work situations. Company spokespeople spend their days talking for a living. Everyone else in the world spends their working days doing a lot of things other than talking, but many of them still need instant, frequent communication with co-workers.

With PTT, you have an 8-hour conversation with someone, that only consists of 20 minutes of actual talking, and therefore only 20 minutes of airtime billed (depending on how the carrier charges for PTT, but certainly cheaper than an 8-hour phone call).

But much more importantly, PTT is built from the ground-up to support group calling. That's where PTT really shines. Have you ever tried to set up a conference call? How long did it take? How often do you do it now? Can you see the advantage of talking to your whole work team at any moment, literally at the touch of a button? If you can't, that's just your profession - a lot of people would find that invaluable (and already do, with Nextel).
