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.
