My family and I bought about 6 of these "radios" while we were skiing on holiday in Boston, America, and some of us wanted to go off and have a bit more freedom. We had seen other people using contraptions not unlike the ones e bought and thought they looked good and would be a way of not getting lost. They performed well over the wide, open piestes and enabled us to always have contacts with the other members of our family. Since we got home we have used them for many different things; not getting lost on a cruise ship; going around markets or car boot sales; we lent them to a friend going snow boarding; going around fairgrounds; and generally places where we children would like more freedom from our parents, while still being safe. The radios are better than mobile phones in a sense that mobile phones are expensive to use and you pay to contact people, with the Talkabout T6222's, its free and you can contact everyone in your party at the same time. if you want to only talk to one or two people, then that can be done by those people simply changing their frequency, which is easy enough as there are a large number to hoose from. I think that buying ours was one of the best ideas my dad had as they are worth every penny of what we paid for them, (i think they were about 70 dollars each at the time). I get more fredom from my parents too when I have one! Ciao, Milly xxxx

Hi, and welcome to ciao. Good first review, althoug to get a higher rating it would need to include a bit more detail - features, functions etc. If you update, let me know and will happily re-rate! Take care, Dave

They certainly look robust little things - far more so than most of the mobile phones out there - and no more expensive, either. I especially like the idea of no call charges! :-)
