    We have purchased 11 motorola v750 phones this past august with push to talk and field force managment installed on all phones. we have had continued problems with short batterly life, 6-8 hours after a full charge. Motorola and Verizon have both denied any issues with battery life.

    Has anyone else had this same problem? If so, let me know, your input would be greatly apppreciated.

    This is the same for the Sprint variant, the V950. It is because the PTT feature uses data (VOIP) and data kills phone batteries. The phone also has to keep contacting the data network to remain "ready" to receive PTT calls, also reducing battery life. If you want any hope of making it through the day on one charge you need the extended battery. Since you have 11 lines, perhaps VZW will cut you a deal on the purchase of so many batteries?

    But if you have the phone and don't plan on using PTT. Is there a way to disable it to improve battery life?

    Well, with Sprint if you are not paying for PTT it is not activated and then the battery is fine. On the Sprint version, if the PTT feature is enabled on your account, there is no way to disable it on the phone.

    So I think you would need VZW to remove PTT capabilities to see an improvement in battery life.
