I gotta say--as the guy who couldn't sleep until the guy in the hotel
room next to his stopped PTT'ing with his wife at 2:00am--that PTT
typically ruins it (my mood) for me.  :)  (Does the beep/conversation
volume have to be that loud?)

Besides, my provider doesn't offer PTT, so it won't be a downside for me
(although finding a use for a PTT button without PTT would have been an
interesting challenge--made possible by the free platform :).
