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.
PTT is a feature of the phone so the user can make use of the mobile phone like a walkie talkie or radio. This can only be deactivated if your network support such service. This varies per region as well. You can check the settings of the phone under tools -->settings-->network-->PTT-->disable.Might aswell consult your provider if they support this kind of service so you can maximize the usage of your phone.
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.
push to talk was earlier introduced by tata tele and hutch it is available in tata kyler mobiles which was import by tata from japan and america,but ptt is still in controversies in india due to technological reforms or u may say our own elected illiterate ministers.........so wait for ptt to be lanched by all telecom companies
