    I'm curious about this, since I had problems today while biking with my brother and neither of us could hear the other without shouting.

    Is there any inexpensive way to connect two iPhones over Bluetooth and use them as walkie talkies? Any app that does that? I saw several online, but all of them used wifi for it, not Bluetooth. Is there any way to use Bluetooth for this?

    Bluetooth not so much. If you're more than 30 feet away it won't work. There is voxer. It uses data but I use it all the time. It's pretty awesome.

    I know Bluetooth has limitations on range, but it has to be Bluetooth. I don't have a data plan, because I never really need it, and even if I did, my brother absolute lyrefuse to get one for himself. So Bluetooth, or phone calls are the only way to go.

    I only have ppu data ($5/50MB) for my iPhone 5S. I only use it if I absolutely need to use internet in a place where I have none, like if I get lost on a road trip, or just plain get bored or something.

    Otherwise I don't use it. Since I try to never pay more than $10 per month for the data, I don't do any music streaming or VoIP over data.

    My brother has just had his carrier disable data for him entirely. It's pretty silly, I know, because what if he gets lost and needs a map? He's pretty stubborn though.

    But otherwise we don't really need data. Nowadays even small time mom and pop shops have wifi in them. XD
