Prip (new PTT app from NII + Motorola)

Just curious, has anyone out there tried "Prip" yet?

I pasted the link to the Prip "introduction" page above because it gives some background on why Prip came about and who is involved (NII & Motorola). Interestingly, Prip was apparently born in Reston, VA (the former Nextel corporate HQ).

I'm looking for real-world feedback, because our Sprint Direct Connect service works so poorly where we live. The Airave Sprint gave us actually turns DC off, so we had to turn off the Airave, and Prip claims they can use any data connection with any carrier (3G, 4G or WiFi).

If Prip works as advertised, it might be a decent alternative for the many people who have had poor results with Sprint Di...

I think it's odd that Phonescoop has said nothing about the new carrier-agnostic PTT service by Prip, especially since Phonescoop recently posted a news blurb about C-Spire's new Kodiak-based PTT (how many C-Spire users are there?).

At any rate, if any of you old Nextel users, or current Sprint Direct Connect users, are considering trying Prip for the free 30-day trial, just make SURE that each phone on which you want to install Prip has its own Google/Gmail account. At least initially, you can NOT register multiple phones with Prip on a single Google/Gmail account and have both doing Prip PTT at the same time. Make sure to register each Prip phone with a separate Google/Gmail account. And please let us know how it goes for you.
