    Actually with TiKL, any Android phone that supports it can be used for PTT.

    I get some error with TiKL about not having a country code programmed into my sim card…I have a cdma phone. I saw the FAQ and all it mentioned was having a blank phone #, but mine is there in the settings like it should be. Any ideas?

    I’m in Tampa Bay, FL and can’t find the i1 at and boost retailers. I have been to radio shack, best buy, sprint…!
    Specifically in the St. Petersburg area. I haven’t tried in Tampa.
    Best Buy actually had the dummy phone on display but said they don’t have the phone available for sale!! Go figure.
