ronindanbo: I remember when Telecom bought in Push to Talk which was a disaster we had to give it away just to get people to use it

I've never even heard of it. I guess that proves your point :)

lol yes one day some magic marketer decided it would be fun to by some technology from America where you could turn your cellphone into a walky talky.... go figure

Push to talk did have it's uses though. I think it would have been a really good feature for tradesmen. Problem is that I don't think marketing supported it all that well.

I recall the Push to talk advertising from Telecom basically consisted of children playing around with their phones.  Great way to convince tradesmen to get it, I agree it would be quite useful for them.

Wasn't the ad full of kids playing the roles of tradesmen, ironically?
