Frequently Asked Questions about the PTT App


Yes, Tango Tango works on any network with an internet connection. All you need to do to use Tango Tango via Wifi is to make sure your phone is logged onto the Wifi network.

If you have trouble connecting via a Wifi network, contact us. It could be that your network administrator has blocked access to ports needed by our app. We can help you and your network admin troubleshoot this.

First, if you or your team do not yet have an account, then request a Free Trial.

Once you have an account created by our team, download the app from either Google Play or the App Store and follow the instructions in the video below. The short version of what’s covered in the video –

  1. Start the app.
  2. Put in the phone number that you used when your account was setup. Note that it is possible to setup an account with an email address rather than a phone number but a phone number will also be the default login if one is setup.
  3. Make sure to grant all permissions requested or the app will not work properly.
  4. Enjoy!

You can find more detailed instructions in our knowledgebase:

We have found that our app uses 10% or less of battery per day when the app is heavily used. If traffic is light, this number can be substantially better. If location tracking is not used, it can be turned off to improve battery life further.

Not much. Each hour of talking uses about 18 megabytes. This translates to:

  • 10 hours of usage in a month will use about 180MB.
  • 50 hours will use about 900MB

Note that data is only used when your phone is connected and receives traffic from the system.


Tango Tango works on any cellular carrier including Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, & USCellular as well as all regional carriers. As long as you can connect to internet from your device, you can talk on Tango Tango.
