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.
If the push to talk button is damaged. You will need to disassemble the radio to get to the circuit board. The PTT is usually surface mount soldered to the board. You will need silver electronics grade solder, a flux pen, a solder sucker or solder wick, a replacement PTT, a soldering iron 25 watts or greater, screwdrivers to match the screws in the casing during disassembly, a table mounted vise to hold the circuit board during repair/ soldering, a very fine grit sand paper to remove any oxidation off the terminals of the PTT for a perfect solder connection, and probably a magnifying glass to inspect the new solder connection with the PTT to the circuit board.
Most of the soldering tools can be purchased at radio shack.
if you have no experience soldering, I recommend going to YouTube and watch the videos posted on DIY soldering to get a good understanding of the whole process from start to finish. There is a huge amount of informational videos on the subject there. I could sit here and try to explain the whole process and why but as the saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words (but a video is worth a million ).
Hold the push to talk(PTT) button while turning the unit on, it will talk to you. press PTT to change channel, push monitor to switch to codes, press PTT to change codes. When you have the correct settings press monitor and it will confirm settings.
That is indicating that you have turned on the PTT (Push To Talk) feature on the phone. The PTT feature is like you would see on a Nextel phone, operating like a walkie talkie. There is a button on the side of the phone that will have a PTT logo embossed on it. Push that button to activate the PTT feature.
