    I am pretty sure that is an additional service with nextel/sprint. Check with them.

    Q: How do I make a Nextel Group Walkie-Talkie call?
    A: To set up and place a Nextel Group Walkie-Talkie call, use following steps from a Nextel Group Walkie-Talkie capable phone:
    1. From Contact, scroll to [New Group] and select ok. Select [Add Member] to add members from your Contacts or Recent Calls.
      --or--
      Select [Add Number] to enter a Nextel walkie-talkie number.
    2. Save the group and press the Nextel walkie-talkie button.
    For step-by-step instructions for your phone, you can also refer to your handset's user guide.




    Got this from the web site...hope it helps.

    The Nextel BlackBerries are not group connect enabled. Sorry. Only the new 128k sim phones are enabled for group connect. BB's are still 32k and 64k.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Some phones are GroupTalk enabled on their own, and others, like the Blackberries, it's an additional service that I believe has to be activated via your local store or on Nextel.com

    Re: group talk direct connect for bb 7520

    BlackBerries do not do group connect. They however can do talkgroups. Talkgroups are calls made to many walkie-talkie users ON THE SAME ACCOUNT. Is this what you are trying to accomplish trinybwoy? If you are trying to connect to other users on other accounts, you cannot. And yes, talk groups need to be set up online in MYNEXTEL, or on the phone with customer care. Hope this helps.

    thank you very much!
    my initial intention was to be able to make a group connect call to all my friends at work.
    We work as lifeguards every summer, and this year we all have nextel/boost fones, but unforutanetly i wont be able to talk to all of them at the same time.
