1) Pry the PTT button out with an exacto knife.

2) Cut the center post off the back with the exacto knife.

3) Reinstall.....very easy fix takes 30 seconds. PTT will never work again.

How do you remove super glue from a keyboard?

Short answer: You can't.
Long answer: Super glue is designed to glue things together permanently, but it can be dissolved with the right chemicals. I am not sure that those won't dissolve the keyboard itself though.

I read the comment about removing 4 small screws on the faceplate of the samsung rugby, but there were two rubber covers over the top screws. Not so with the bottom screws. How do I get to them?

If the rubber covers are over the screws, you will need to remove them to get to the screws. This isn't very difficult. The easiest way is to jut try to peel them off with your fingers, but if that doesn't work, try to wedge a small flat-head screwdriver under it to peel it off. There should be enough adhesive after you do this that they should stick right back on, but if there isn't, you may have to glue them on.

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.

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....

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.
