Sprint Adds More Handsets to Direct Connect Now Compatibility List

Sprint announced availability of Direct Connect Now for six new devices this morning, adding compatibility for the push-to-talk app that brings Sprint users closer together with the push of a button. Starting today, owners of a few LG, Samsung, and Kyocera devices can grab the app right off of Google Play for free, as long as their plans allow for it. 

The service is free for most plans, but if your plan does not have it, you can add the service to your phone for just $5 extra a month. Below we have listed out the newly-compatible devices.

Newly compatibile devices

  • Samsung Galaxy S 4
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3
  • LG G2
  • LG G Flex
  • LG Optimus F3
  • Kyocera Hydro Edge

Upcoming devices

  • Samsung Galaxy S 4 Mini
  • Samsung Galaxy Mega

If you are on Sprint and own one of the listed devices above, head on over to Google Play to download the app for your phone.

      You’re the only person on this entire page who mentioned the word “Nextel”…

        Ha yeah. Verizon used to have this service back when Nextel then sprint Nextel had it. That was the worst is sitting in a restaurant and hearing that aweful chirp with someone yelling through it.

      “Kool idea”? This isn’t a new “idea”. All they’re doing is adding more phones to this list of devices that supports Direct Connect.
      Also, for the love of god, use the autocorrect that Samsung gives you. It’s not spelled “kool” with a K, and you are not cooler for doing it. Seriously, the 90’s called. They want their hip words back.
      What an idiot.
