Default PTT, Direct Connect, Two-Way... WHY?

All Nextel phones give you the option of turning of the the speaker phone
function and goes to the ear set...that way your wife can talk dirty to you
with not guilt....

The only advantage I see to DC is you don't have to wait for a ring...then
again, the disadvantage is if the person does not answer, you can't leave
them a voice mail..

DC is mostly, I think, useful for business/fleet users..for personal
accounts.....I use it mainly because I have unlimited DC 'calling'..If I had
a PCS to PCS plan, I would rather use it...

Sprint SUCKS in a major way in Las Vegas so those guys are no option....

I am a indirect sales agent for Nextel as well as Alltel, Sprint PCS,
Verizon, T-Mobile, ATT, Cingular, and some smaller regional companies. I
sell a lot of Nextel primarily because people want the Direct Connect (two
way radio) feature. I can see the advantages for businesses, but why so many
others want it is beyond me. I have a problem with the fact that anyone
around me is able to hear both sides of the conversation. Say I'm walking
through the local mall and my wife decides to talk dirty to me while I'm
walking past a group of young people. Other than businesses and people who
live in areas that nextel has the best coverage, you are better off with
someone like Sprint PCS were you can add unlimited PCS to PCS for $5 per
contract, not per phone, or get it free with a two year contract, but I hate
contracts longer than 1 year. Other companies are planning on offering the
PTT services once Nextels patent expires, but I sincerely hope they don't
take away their standard unlimited cell to cell calling plans.

Ralph,

I like direct connect because it is much faster to get through to the
person, especially if it is the last person I spoke with, which for me is
usually the case. Just one button push and we're talking! Another apparent
advantage is that NEXTEL traditionally included unlimited DC in their plan,
but this is changing and the competition is matching the cost with various
unlimited plans.

One particular advantage that NEXTEL has for me is the internet
features included for a flat monthly cost, i.e. it does not use up my
minutes. I frequently read and respond to my POP3 e-mail from my phone, from
work, from airports, or in my car.
