General Information
  1. What is Push to Talk?
    Push to Talk (PTT) is a 2-way radio-type service that provides simple communication with the push of a button. A Push to Talk capable phone and subscription to either a Verizon Wireless voice plan with a Push to Talk feature or the Push to Talk Only plan is required for all PTT subscribers.

    View our current line-up of Push to Talk phones available at VerizonWireless.com.



  3. Where will my Push to Talk service work?

    For Push to Talk on basic phones, you can connect directly with other Verizon Wireless Push to Talk subscribers while you are in the National Enhanced Services Rate and Coverage Area.

    For Push to Talk on BlackBerry® devices you can connect directly with other Verizon Wireless Push to Talk subscribers while you are in the National Enhanced Services Rate and Coverage Area and the Extended National Enhanced Services Rate and Coverage Area. International roaming capabilities are also available in some CDMA countries, however the Push to Talk experience may not be ideal. Additional fees may apply with Push to Talk roaming Internationally.

    For details, please visit our Coverage Locator.



  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 voicemail. You will not notice a change during your Push to Talk call.



  5. What happens when I receive a Push to Talk call while on a regular voice 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.



  7. Will I be charged Airtime for my Push to Talk calls?

    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.



  8. How do I make a Push to Talk call to someone who is not already in my Push to Talk contact list?

If you add a 1 before the area code, or only dial the 7-digits (forgetting the area code), the call will not complete.



  9. Do I need to have a special Push to Talk phone number?

    No, you do not need a special Push to Talk phone number; you only need one Verizon Wireless mobile telephone number for both voice calls and Push to Talk calls.



  10. How can I disable Push to Talk temporarily?
