I searched and couldent find anything in this fourm or anywere else. I dont know how PTT or walkie talkie's work but I was thinking they work vary similar and I could be way off on this but I was wondering is there any way to use the PTT part of the phone as a simple short range walkie talkie that will communicate with simple stand alone walkie talkies? I saw a wifi program but I am prettysure walkie talkie's dont communicate via wifi.

I'm going to say no. AFAIK, PTT works more like a regular phone call than an actual walkie-talkie. I don't think the phone has any other kind of radio inside of it.

Several Instant messaging applications (Agile Mobile and Palringo(free), for example) offer a walkie talky like functionality, as long as you are on a data plan or WiFi you can use it.

Palringo even goes a step further with having "Groups" so that you can use the voice chat with a group of people all at the same time.

you wont be able to use normal walki talki frequenzies. The normal frequenzies are PMR wich is in the ~446mhz band. our phone work in 850/900/1800/1900 mhz. way off.
Perhaps theres some way to make a new firmware for the radiochips wich would support them, but i doubt that its possible.

As you wont be able to communicate with normal radios, there wont be much sense for you to use that as work.
