Question about Samsung Rugby SGH-a837 Cell Phone

1 Answer

How do you disable the PTT button on the Samsung Rugby? I do not use Push to Talk, but I keep getting the "Would you like to initialize PTT service?" question every time I accidentally hit the PTT button. It is a real pain! If I could reassign or disable that button it would be great.

Stick your fingernail or a thin blade between the button cover toward the front side of phone. Pry it out just like would the charge port cover. Cut off the protruded part of the button cover (this is the pusher stick that activates the real button), and then press the button back in place.

Now the button is no more but looks functional, the only caveat is that if you suddenly decided you want PTT to work, your button is dead unless you can aquire a new button cover somehow.

Unable to switch push to talk


14. Push to talk Push to talk (PTT) is a two-way radio service available over a GPRS cellular network (network service). You can use PTT to have a conversation with one person or with a group of people (channel) having compatible phones. While you are connected to the PTT service, you can use the other functions of the phone. To check availability, costs, additional features and to subscribe to the service, contact your service provider. Roaming services may be more limited than for normal calls. This feature may not be available, depending on your phone. For more information about signing up for the PTT services and the usage, contact your service provider. To connect to the PTT service, select Menu > Push to talk > Switch PTT on. LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE TO SUBSCRIBE TO USE IT! hope this helps.

Hi,

Unfortunately, you have not provided me a model number and an explanation of what your exact problem is. Therefore, the best that I can do is give you a definition of PTT:

Push to talk (PTT). Push to talk (PTT) functions as a two-way radio. The PTT option is available only if enabled by the service provider.

I have no personal interest or association with any product that I may suggest.

How do you disable the PTT button on the Samsung


From what I have read, there is no setting to disable the PTT
If you don't plan on using your PTT in the future.
Look for the PTT button on the left side of the phone.
Take a pin slide it under the button and pop it off.
On the back of the button, there is a little tab.
Take a nail clipper and shorten the tab just a bit.
Snap the button back on the phone.
With the tab shortend, the PTT will not activate when pushing or hitting the button.

Hang up


Button on side is not for answering calls.
PTT or Push To Talk allows you to use your mobile like a walkie talkie. It is dependant on your network operator running the service.

Quote from Pocket lint:
To use the function you must first create a group or individual in your phone menu and send an SMS invitation to those you wish to join. Once your contacts are set up, your phone shows which members have their handsets switched on with push-to-talk enabled, in the same way that instant messaging works online. By pushing a single button on the handset, you are connected with one person or with your group. There is no need to dial numbers, nor do the recipients need to answer calls. You simply push a button and talk. As with a walkie-talkie, anyone in the group hears you almost instantaneously. The talking is one way with only one person able to speak at a time. Unlike walkie-talkies, which are infuriatingly dependent on distance, push-to-talk has no such limitations.

You should be able to disable PTT in the Nokia menu, which is best if your network doesn't support it. Plus you won't keep cutting off calls.
