Cingular Now Offers PTT By The Minute
Jan 31, 2007, 1:51 PM by (staff)
Cingular today announced a new pricing structure that will allow subscribers to try Push To Talk (PTT) without having to commit to a month-long unlimited plan. Customers can instead for PTT calls on a per-minute rate of 15 cents. Because PTT sessions don't usually require users to press the end key to stop a call, Cingular will round calls up to 30 seconds if users don't do anything to end it. Users will still need to call or visit Cingular to have their PTT activated on their handset before they can use per-minute or unlimited plans. PTT is currently available on 9 Cingular models and the carrier plans to release additional PTT phones throughout the year. Other carriers that offer pay per use PTT typically charge a small fee for a day of use instead of a per minute charge.
In late 2020, the focus of the mobile world is still on 5G, but it's not on flagship phones; the hot race is who can offer the best $400 5G phone. Verizon's big bet in this race is on the TCL 10 5G UW, which stands out for including faster mmWave 5G, a feature that usually carries a price premium.

Verizon has tweaked its unlimited plans to include more value at the same prices. The Just Kids plan now includes unlimited 4G data instead of a set 5GB.

This summer, Samsung will launch Samsung Money by SoFi, a new financial product integrated with Samsung Pay. Like Apple Card, Samsung Money can be used as a payment method with the wallet app (Samsung Pay), the account is managed within the wallet app, and the product also includes a physical payment card.

Verizon has introduced a new entry-level unlimited plan that's $5/month cheaper. The new Welcome Unlimited plan is mostly similar to the company's 5G Start plan (which was previously the cheapest, and remains available), but does not include the 5 GB of mobile hotspot data that was recently added to that plan.
Cingular PTT is AWESOME!!... as far as PTT goes...
*The ability to connect with up to 20 PTT contacts at once.
*Being able to see who's available before attempting a PTT call.
*Being able to manage who is able to contact you via PTT and who can't.
*You can use PTT on speaker, in "quiet mode, or via Bluetooth.
*Minimal latency on the initial connection, and virtually none thereafter.
*Versatile PTT phones. No one can touch Cingular's PTT handset line up.
*The only thing keeping Cingular PTT from becoming the standard in the PTT market, it the lack of "durable" handsets.
In conclusion PTT isn't necessarily the most practical way to make a pho...
Cingular = fake PTT
Correct me if I'm wrong - I've never used Cingular's PTT service (never will use Cingular either) and am going off what I've heard and read.
I wouldn't use a PTT product though...no matter how good it was.
