I have the t5600 pair and have found no way to do it but you can hold the menu button in for 3 to 5 seconds and open your selection menu that includes lock,tones,etc and on your model you may be able to turn it off. good luck!!!

Hold the + button while radio is in off position. Keep holding it as you turn it on. This will stay set even after you turn it off and on again. Don't hold me to the plus may be one of the other buttons but I can't tell because my button labels have worn off. Anyway, one of the buttons will do what you want with this off on process.

Have Talkabout 250 and want to turn off the beeping. any ideas

The following instructions are for the T289, which is very similar to the T250. It is possible they will work to turn off your beeps.

Alert Tones

The Alert Tones (beeps) on the Talkabout radios are set at a fixed volume

level and cannot be lowered. However, Alert Tones can be disabled. When

Alert Tones are disabled, the radio will receive messages at the volume

setting you've selected, but you will not hear beeps when you press control


Disabling Alert Tones:

1. Hold down the Monitor button while you turn radio on.

2. To re-activate Alert Tones, turn the radio off, then on again while holding
the Monitor button down.

Model: Motorola Talkabout 2-way radios

Typically you should be able to communicate by pressing the Push-to-Talk button (PTT). If it is necessary for you to press the musical note, you are using the Call Tone feature, which makes the other unit have a sound. This method is acceptable, but not necessary unless you want sound.

Here is a copy of the user guide:

Read the section on Call Tones and decide if this is the method you prefer. Otherwise, shut off the call tones and then you can simply use the PTT button to communicate.

You are correct, the radios must be set to the same Frequency. Plus, they must be on the same Code (interference eliminator code) and the Qt filter must be set the same on both units. Following setting everything to match one another your radios are ready to communicate.

Best regards.

Ring tone thingy

Setting and Transmitting Call Tones
Your radio can transmit different call tones to other radios in your group so you can alert them that you want to talk.
To set a call tone:
1. With the radio on, press MENU 3 times. The current call tone setting flashes and displays.
2. Press + or - to change and hear the call tone.
3. Press MENU or PTT to set the new call tone or turn feature off.
