PTT-capable, no PTT button?

I must be missing something obvious, but so far I can't see it.

The Specs & Features page shows this phone to be PTT capable, yet there is no PTT button on the side (as their is will all of Kyocera's rugged flip phones on Sprint).

If there is no PTT button on this simple, rugged flip phone, how does it do PTT?

Which then begs the question, does anyone actually use Verizon PTT anyway?

Just curious what I'm missing.

Just for historical perspective, compare this review of the Dura-XV to the old Moto i580 (two links below: User reviews at Phonescoop, Editor's review at CNET):

Like Vin Diesel or Danny Trejo

"Like Vin Diesel or Danny Trejo, it looks tough even from a distance. You don't want to mess with it unless you want your teeth knocked in."

No better words to describe a Rugged phone! Suddenly, I feel like reading your reviews.

While I haven't tried this version of Kyocera's feature phones, I do have the DuraXT with Sprint, and I have found that access and use of basic phone features are WAY better than with the best smartphone.

In my opinion, "clunky" best describes a feature that requires a minimum of three key presses to access, then requires a second or two to load. Once you set your shortcuts on phones like these, one button press gains you instant access to the feature you wish to utilize.
