DORIAN: Your Phone Is Not A Walkie Talkie

  • by

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Quick repeat of a story we ran two years ago during another hurricane.

There is no app in the world that turns your iPhone into a walkie talkie. If you don’t have cell or wifi service, you’re not making a call. To put it another way: if you’re not on the internet, you’re not making a call.

Whether it’s Zello or something else, you must be connected to a network. If there’s no power, if there’s no internet, there’s no network so there’s no communication.
