Sprint today indicated that some of its Direct Connect subscribers may not have access to the push-to-talk service. In a statement emailed to Phone Scoop, a Sprint spokesperson said, "Due to a temporary equipment disruption, some Sprint Direct Connect customers may be experiencing an interruption in their push-to-talk services. Our network engineers are aggressively working on the situation and we hope to have service fully restored as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this might be causing our customers at this time." Sprint did not say how many customers are being affected by the issue, nor when the issue may be resolved. The Direct Connect service uses CDMA-based technology to power walkie-talkie conversations. It is replacing the outgoing iDEN PTT network, which will be fully discontinued by June 2013.

I could sure use some Sprint LTE in Middle Georgia at ROBINS AIR BASE 😢
Not sure what this comment has to do with the article, but I hope they get LTE to you sooner rather than later.
Sprint has been trying for five years to get their CDMA push-to-talk to work correctly. What makes you think Sprint will be any more successful with LTE when LTE is far more complicated than simple PTT?

Good luck with that LTE stuff on Sprint.
