Zello.com -- emergency walkie talkie on cell phone

Postby ReadyMom » Wed Sep 06, 2017 11:40 am

Just finding out about this App available on your cell phone! I'm setting up a channel for our family. You can set up multiple channels. The mom's facebook page that I'm on set one up, as well. Should we set one up for APN? The APN channel would be used just for emergencies. Let me know if interested. Here's the info:

If you use this make sure you test it occasionally, weekly. I had my app lock up on me and it hasn't been 100% reliable. But I do think it is another handy tool to put in the tool box. It is great when it is working!

If the internet and cell towers a down it doesn't work. Check the online reviews.

During hurricane Irma, I was able to communicate with family that was in an area with absolutely no electricity for a week using an old fashioned touch-tone telephone. They draw their power from the phone lines rather than the power lines.
Not everyone has a cell phone, especially the elderly. And even cell towers have a limited supply of back up power.
