Question about Motorola Talkabout FRS 250 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio
The Motorola TalkAbout radios, especially the FR50 and FR60, are notorious for making a variety of beeps when you push buttons and activate various functions of the radio.
The beeps can be helpful when you are trying to operate the radio in low-light situations. But they can also be mildly irritating.
Sadly most models of TalkAbout do not provide any way to disable the beeps. I'd suggest not using this particular radio for covert surveillance missions.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

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.
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.
