How to Turn Your Phone Into a Walkie-Talkie


Walkie-talkies are hand-held, portable two-way radio transceivers. They date back to World War II and are still commonly used today as toys, in construction, in trucks and in the military. Turning your iPhone into a walkie-talkie is now possible with the use of the HeyTell application. This free application allows a user to record a voice mail message for a friend which is instantly sent to his phone. The person is then notified of their message and can listen and reply. The application is even designed to look similar to a walkie-talkie.

Things You'll Need

  • iPhone
  • HeyTell application
  • Open the iTunes store on your iPhone. Click on the search button. Type in HeyTell. Click the download button in the upper right corner of the screen.

  • Wait until the application has completely downloaded to your phone. Click on the green and white icon to open the application.

  • Press the green and white button on the right side of the screen to choose a friend to chat with. Select a name. The "To:" field should now show their name. Note that this application only works with other phones that also have the application. So choose a friend that you know also has HeyTell installed.

  • Press and hold the big orange "Hold and Speak" button. Record your message and then release the button. The message is now instantly sent to their phone. This application even works internationally.
