    I'm not sure if this is possible but at my work, I work at a grocery store, we all use two way radios. Is there an app for iPhone that I can tune into the channel they are in and talk on it?

    They use some Motorola Walkies. That'd be cool if you can communicate with people with two way radios.

    Not a chance, the frequencies are gonna be way different.

    If you ever noticed the range of bluetooth you would see how pointless that app is. If you going to be that close you might as well whisper it to them. You might have to tap them on the shoulder first to get their attention though..

    it is impossible to do that since it lacks the hardware.

    I work at a retail store and we use Motorola XU2100 walkies. Seems as there is only 1 channel with two frequencies. I tried to go into the parking lot of a different store to see if it picks up their walkies so I can communicate with them and it doesnt. Is there a way I can change the channel on this walkie to mess with them in other stores?

    If I go to any place like Walmart etc and purchase like a little 15 channel 2 two way radio set and go into a store parking lot and scan, can I pick up them and talk to them in the store? Haha let me know!
