    I have a Storm 2 and a Tour. I looked at both the OS Versions and the Storm 2 looks to be more advanced than the Tour. Why would they not have it built into the Storm 2 software?

    Storm 2: 5.0.0.607 OS

    Tour: 5.0.0.591 OS

    The PTT software is only 175136 bytes of space (171kb). The Storm 2 has more space than the Tour.

    My Storm 2: File free 108251579 Bytes = about 103.23mb

    My Tour: File free 105860505 Bytes = about 100.95mb

    I have ALOT of stuff on the Storm and hardly anything on the Tour. I am sure I could find the room on the Storm... LOL!

    My guess would be that they are testing it on the Tour to see if it is a hit or not. I think it would suck if they don't allow the same option for the Storm owners too. I would much rather use it on my Storm than I would on the Tour. Of course I could be wrong...

    Actually Tour is up to 662. I know 5.0.0.643 cures many if not all of the bugs in the "official" 591.

    1. It has nothing to do with "space". I assure you that the Storm2 is capable of running anything the Tour can (at least from a computing perspective -- I'm not sure if there are hardware requirements that the Tour has and the Storm doesn't)

    2. You can't really compare OS versions across different devices based solely on the version number, since OS's are built specifically for individual hardware. Is there somewhat of a correlation? Yes...but it's kind of a Nave viewpoint to state that because the Storm is on version .607 and the Tour is version .591 that the Storm's OS is "16 better". The bottom line is that the Storm's OS may have never have been built around the capability to use PTT as a feature...so it hardly matters what version # they're on if they've never intended for it to be a feature in the first place.*

    *I'm not stating the Storm's ability to use the PTT feature is or isn't OS dependent, I have no idea...I'm just saying it doesn't necessarily matter the OS version number vs. the Tour's when it comes that feature being available.

    3. I actually have found it odd that Verizon would roll the PTT feature out just for the Tour and now Bold 9650, without so much of a mention of the Storm. Seems like there must be something preventing it from happening though, otherwise why not add the feature to all devices that could support it?

    I agree that comparing a Storm OS to a Tour OS is like comparing apples and oranges. I was only adding that there are a few Tour OS's beyond the one msblueline referred to.
