Re: PTT question
Besides the time thing, there is another important difference in that Nextel's PTT is a separate system that runs in parallel to the cellular voice service. That is why during major crises, Nextel PTT frequently works when other cellular systems, including VZ & ATT's PTT, become overwhelmed and shut down.
Google it and you'll find many postings about how Nextel PTT remained functioning after 9-11, Katrina, etc.
Also, Nextel phones have the off-network "Direct Talk" that no other company has.
NextMail is another wonderful PTT tool that is available only with Nextel.
So, there are other differentiating items that Nextel has
