Hi, I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California and today I'm going to explain to you how walkie talkie cellphones work. Walkie talkie is kind of a dumbed down word for direct connect. Direct connect is a feature that allows you to have a cellphone. So these cellphones are a little bit different from the normal cellphones. They have a couple more buttons on them. Right here at the top you have the speaker button which allows you to either have the phone on the regular handset speaker like when you hold it up to your face or on a loudspeaker and the second button here is to access the walkie talkie or direct connect menu which will allow you to pick different contacts for you to communicate with. Then over here on the side we have what's called a PTT or Push To Talk button. This is what you hold down and then you talk into the phone and it'll send a signal over to the other phone. So direct connect or walkie talkie feature does not use up your minutes. It's provided for free through carriers like Nextel, Moose Mobile and Southern Link as long as you already have their existing service, it's provided for free, you can use it as much as you want without using up your minutes or overages. It's included in the base rate plan. So it's a great feature if you want to try it out, it's great for when you go to the mall with your kids or when you go the park you can still communicate between devices without having to waste the time making a phone call or sending a text message.
