    Repost from New member intros:
    Not yet a Droid owner. Thinking of getting several of the the Casio Commandos for my business. I'm looking at it because I need push-to-talk. Also I'm wanting the ability to swipe credit cards from the job site...manually keypunching is not acceptable. To date, I've not found an acceptable card swiper (Square up's funding plan sux) which is compatible with the Commando...probably due to the curvature and the recessed audio jack. Does anyone know of a usable credit card reader..without printer??

    The Casio Rock will do PTT, but the browser is pretty limited.

    To be honest, I'm not aware of a smart phone that does PTT, much less being rugged.

    If you decide you want a Rock I have one I can sell. :biggrin:

    Search "Tikl" on the market. Commando DOES do PUT!

    didnt know about that app - i was just saying that as a stock feature it is not a PTT phone

    if that app works well, then technically every android phone would be PTT and he wouldnt be limited to the commando

    if his only req is PTT and he doesnt actually need rugged phones, then he could use that app on a faster phone like the droid x and be better off

    Tikl works awesome, and any android phone can run it. I've used nextel and tikl works as good if not better. He said he wanted them for his business which probably means he definately needs a rugged phone. Most employess don't treat company provided things very well you can imagine what they might do to a cell phone.

    Update

    Finally decided on the Commando.
    We will use iTiKL for PTT, CC swipe by Aircharge.com
    All equipment distributed 10/5/11. Taking bets on how many of 12 are still functional Dec 31.

    Samsung's ChatON is in the Android market now, and it does much more than Tiki including geolocation. They will soon have a PD version so you can see where your workers are!

    I just got the Square card reader (shipped to me June 2011) to work with my Commando. Previously it didn't have enough clearance between the reader and the phone to fully insert into the audio jack. I used a rat-tail file to carve out about 1/16" out of the reader (see first photo) and now it works if inserted into the phone in the correct orientation (second and third photo).

    I can't get the square app to download onto to my commando. It just says not available for my version. Any suggestions?

    I had the same issue, but I kept trying it and it finally worked. I know I clicked on the link that was sent in the confirmation e-mail from Square, I also went to the app market and I also signed into Google Play on my PC and chose the option to install it from there. One of those methods worked, sorry I can't be more specific.

    Hey guys, just got the commando because I have drowned three too many phones. Surprisingly, the commando does a good job at holding its breath. I do a lot of rough hunting and fishing - needless to say I found myself chest deep in a river with phone in pocket. Didn't realize until it vibrated and I answered - no probs.

    Has anyone been able to give a definite process for downloading the square app to this system? We have been using it over a year and havent had any problems until we got the commando.

    How do I get it?

    Great Idea

    I used a Dremel tool with a pumice attachment and removed 1/16 of an inch of the entire "fat" side of the swiper, works in any position
