We purchased 5 of these 2-way radios (Two 18 Mile GMRS Radios & Charging Cradle) from Uniden's website for our school. The reception is horrible no matter what channel you are on and the amount of static doesn't allow you to communicate with anyone. In an attempt to return the 2-way radio's we were on hold on two separate occasions for at least an hour. The customer service stinks and there is no link on their website to review this product at all. We sent an email to them last week and we are still waiting for a response. Don't buy this product.
My son really wanted some walkie talkies. I know these are 2 way radios. My son had some from toys r us that lasted maybe 2 weeks and died so anyhow i wanted to get him something that would last and came across these. these are great. he loves them. Best of all they charge on a cradle. Lots of fun for him.
