    Question "Push to Talk" on Straight Talk Nokia E71 ???

    I have seen in the E71 user manual as well as in the reviews for it, that this phone has the PTT feature but I don't see it on mine. Has Straight Talk eliminated this feature?, or is it something that has to be downloaded?
    Has anybody with the E71 from Straight Talk got it on theirs?

    The nonbranded E71 has Push to Talk. It may not be using the same technology which AT&T uses for its Push to Talk phones. The AT&T branded model does not have the function included. For Push to Talk to function, it has to be supported by the network.

    PTT is iDEN Technology, AT&T doesn't have iDEN. If you want PTT, you have to call Sprint.

    Thanks for the replies. This is a Straight Talk Nokia E71 from Wal-Mart. Even the user manual that came with it tells how to activate it in via menu>settings>communication>PTT. But it's just not there in the comm selection menu. I just want to know if anyone else with the Wal-Mart Straight Talk Nokia E71 has the PTT setting in their phone or not.
    There is even has an app for the iphone which enables it to use PTT, it's called "Haytel".

    Have you tried using the trick I used to find the stock e71 internet radio. It might be in the same location. Just search for " internet radio".
