Telus Mobility has launched its Instant Talk service, Canada's first push-to-talk (P2T) offering available on a national PCS network.

The walkie-talkie function is available through TELUS Mobility's 1XRTT service area via two phones: the Kyocera KX440 and the Motorola V65p. The wireless operator currently offers P2T service via its iDEN-based Mike network, which the company announced would be expanded into Latin America and South America.
