8820 - can this PTT work if other users are on Sprint network and I am on AT&T?

I *believe* it's only "in" network.

First, you have to be on a network that supports PTT. Nextel and AT&T in the US do. Not sure what networks support PTT>

I used Nextel for many years and their PTT feature was fantastic and very dependable. Worked great for short conversations with my field employees.

We had to leave Nextel as we expanded and found that Nextel would not cover our need when we got off the beaten path. We went to ATT and have never regreted it for coverage.

We tried the PTT feature for about 30 days with ATT.

We all laughed till we almost wet our pants!

I guess if you had never used Nextel's chirp . . . well you would not know the difference but the ATT was horrible for us! We cancelled the feature

Would you please provide some details as to your dislikes with the AT&T versus Nextel PTT features and capabilities? Our group has just begun informal testing of the AT&T 8310 with PTT and the ease of use seems to be far better than what Nextel provided. Many of us have/had the 7100i with Nextel.

the ATT is like making a voice call at first, taking 4-6 seconds to connect initially. After the initial connect it isnt that bad, but it does have a bit of lag between pressing the button and the connection. It is nowhere near the "instant" of Iden
