    I think Boost is probably your best bet.

    i like boost, but the coverage is poor at my house, i live in a tin mobile home, and if i want good call quality from inside, i am restricted to my nearest cell site wich is 3 miles away, the next closest one is about 5 miles away, i dont mind standing in front of a window to talk, but my wife, it irritates her. the only cell service as far as i know on my close tower is cdma 800 and 1900 mhz. on the farther ones are gsm and iden. i heard sprint has a cdma ptt service availabe, but i cant find a prepaid vendor, i looked at "platinumtel" but they dont have a great website and they dont list what network they are using. when a website isnt comprehensive, i hesitate in doing any business with them, you know?

    i will probably try platinumtel after i try southernlinc, unless i find another ptt mvno that uses cdma. the only model they offer is sanyo 2400 for around 100 dollars, that is too rich for my blood, seeing as how i will have to buy 2 of them.

    There just aren't many PTT options out there. Sorry.

    yes i know. especially prepaid ptt seems rare. i will have to do some googling. i tried palringo, but i am not in their service area. i wish verizon would offer their ptt with prepaid. i am going to research platinumtel & the sanyo 2400 they offer to see if they are a reputable company.
