  4. What happens when I receive a regular voice call while using Push to Talk?
    While you are using your Push to Talk service, you will not be interrupted if another person tries to call you. Incoming regular voice calls will go directly to your voice mail. You will not notice a change during your Push to Talk call.

    If you receive a Push to Talk call while you are on a regular voice call, your voice call will not be interrupted. You will not receive any indicators that you missed a Push to Talk call. The person who tried to call you using Push to Talk will receive a message indicating that you were unavailable.


  6. Will my regular voice calls be interrupted when I receive a Push to Talk alert?
    No, your regular voice call will not be interrupted when you receive a Push to Talk alert. The person sending you the Push to Talk alert will receive a notice indicating that you were unavailable.

    Push to Talk service includes unlimited one-to-one and group Push to Talk calls for a low monthly access fee.

    For BlackBerry® subscribers additional fees may apply with Push to Talk roaming internationally. You may not have optimal performance while roaming internationally. To avoid these charges and performance issues you may disable Push to Talk when travelling abroad.
