Has anyone heard of an update to the 8700 to enable PTT for Cinguar?

It comes with OS 4.2. You have to have PTT enabled on your account. The PTT application will be installed when someone makes OS 4.2 available to the public. Once you open the application, it gives you a warning about charges; you click OK/Yes. It then connects back to Cingular's network and pulls down the service book (again, you have to provisioned) and enables the PTT application and phone app integration.

...there a few posts on here (by moi) that discuss this already.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
