    Question Series 60 Walkie Talkie Software

    Hi all.

    Can someone tell me if is available a series 60 application that allows you to use your mobile as a walkie talkie, using bluetooth or a modified version of the radio application that operates on the proper walkie talkie frequencies?

    Thanks.

    I haven't heard of such apps. Almost pointless with Bluetooth anyway, because of the max range being about 10 meters; you can talk to somebody 10 meters away without a walkie-talkie.

    And no software application can modify the Bluetooth or cellular radio on the phone to operate as a regular walkie-talkie; it would require entirely different hardware.

    The closest thing to a walkie-talkie like service like that is Push to talk over Cellular (PTT/PoC), which is a feature of some devices (and requires a corresponding operator service): http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,,62518,00.html

    I also knew that the maximum operating range of bluetooth is about 10 meters. Although it would be useless, it would be nice. ^^

    In my knowledge, PTT is currently supported in US only.

    I was not sure about cellular radio and you explained me the question very well.

    Thank you very much.
