Other features of the safe handset include multi-Simultaneous Talk-Group which allows a user to listen to up to four talk groups at a time, Isolated Site Operation that enables a user to make and receive group calls even if the connection is lost and Status Messages that send call alerts including predefined text messages.

The phone comes in an ultra-rugged design and has been certified for military specification requirements. The durable phone can withstand conditions like humidity, blowing rain, dust, shock and vibration. Offering support for the iDEN 800/900 MHz for Nextel Direct Connect network, the Motorola i3651S mobile device includes many push-to-talk services from the network.

Push-to-talk features included are Direct Connect for instant one-to-one push-to-talk, Group Connect, International Direct ConnectSM, Direct TalkSM, Direct SendSM and NextMail.
