Sprint joins the push-to-talk (PTT) wave with its Ready Link service
Sprint announced the availability of a new push-to-talk (PTT) service called PCS Ready Link. The new service makes its debut on two new PCS Vision Ready Link Phones by Sanyo, including a ruggedized version and a clamshell design.

Customers who want to use the PCS Ready Link will be able to choose from two new full-color screen handsets by Sanyo, both with built-in speakerphones and full PCS Vision capabilities including the ability to browse the Internet, access to downloadable games, ringers, screensavers and other Java-based applications, and a full suite of messaging services including access to personal and corporate e-mail via PCS Business Connection. The PCS Vision Ready Link Phone RL2000 by Sanyo is dual-mode with a blue and black ruggedized, bar-style design to minimize wear and tear from heavy use. The PCS Vision Ready Link Phone RL2500 (pictured) by Sanyo is dual-mode/tri-mode with a silver clamshell flip design.

Both phones have a suggested retail price of US$299.99 with special rebate offers.

Customers can use PCS Ready Link to make one-to-one or group calls (up to five people) anywhere on the Sprint PCS Network, which covers more than 240 million people. When not on the enhanced Sprint Nationwide PCS Network, PCS Ready Link customers can still make regular voice calls on their PCS Ready Link Phone in areas where Sprint has analog roaming agreements in place.

Sprint customers who purchase a new PCS Vision Ready Link Phone have a couple of pricing options. Price plans are US$15 per month with unlimited PCS Vision, and an additional US$5 per month if they would like to sign up for unlimited PCS Ready Link service. Customers can also select a plan with only unlimited PCS Ready Link service for a flat fee of US$15 per month.
