An EDVO rev-a network is needed for Sprints new Direct Connect feature. Wouldn't 3G also lend itself to a high performance push-to-talk service since it is also built on CDMA technology?

We just added Family PTT to our 4 phones.
We're still getting used to the service, but I think it will be a big benefit to the family in the long run.

I'm a big bluetooth user on my Tilt. It's nice that all PTT sounds get routed to bluetooth.
My only problem is that I don't wear my bluetooth headset all the time (it's usually hanging on my shirt button) , which means I would miss any PTT alerts or calls that come in.
When I receive a voice call, my Tilt and my bluetooth headset ring. When I hear my Tilt ring, I'll put on my headset and answer the call.
However, when I receive a PTT call, the PTT alert tone only goes to my headset, and my Tilt remains silent.
One other PTT-Bluetooth problem that I've seen is that when Bluetooth is on, but not paired to a headset, an outgoing PTT call seems to lock the PTT button closed (transmitting) while the phone searches for a bluetooth device. So, even though I release the PTT button, the Tilt keeps transmitting PTT while searching for the bluetooth device. It will eventually time out, but the receiving PTT caller receives a PTT message that is 20 or 25 seconds long, and can not respond during that time.
I think I start another thread and discuss Bluetooth and PTT experiences

Well, since I posted last we switched back to Sprint and Nextel. The QCHAT system is disappointing in our area. It requires a very strong data signal. A lot of the time EDVO is not strong enough inside buildings etc.. to work. However the Cdma voice does just fine.
Hence I carry a Motorola Q and an i570. IDEN certainly is the superior technology for PTT. And Sprint is turning around. We have free texting and a heavily discounted plan with them.
...and Verizon roaming.
