Here's a solution finally!! Turn on the radio and press the + button, then while holding it down turn off the radio and then turn it back on after a second, then release the + button. A little icon that looks similar to o))) will no longer be there, which means that the roger feature has been disabled. To re-enable it, turn off the radio, THEN press +, then turn the radio on.
Hopefully this helps.
It works for other motorola models too, I got this from the manual for the T5500.
You are correct except you don't have to hold down the "+" button when you turn it off. Only when you turn it on. What I'd like to know is....when I first turn it on I see a bunch of icons momentarily which I am assuming are different functions this radio has control over. How do I access them if they're there at all? Any control secrets good!!! : )

The Talkabout 101 is a very basic walkietalkie radio. With good batteries installed in the battery compartment, you should be able to turn the radio on, and simply press the front-center push-to-talk (PTT) button and speak. Release the button after speaking so the other person can do the same to talk back to you.
If you are having trouble opening the battery compartment, pull down on the black u-shaped sides and the back portion of the radio will slide down with the u-shaped sides to reveal the compartment. (This would be one of the most common questions asked on this style radio.)
It seems a small hardware-problem, like a button is sticking, making a continues connection. If you are comfortable in hardware-modifications, try to open the casing of the malfunctioning walkie talkie. Do this carefully, not to damage it further. When opened, check the 3 buttons to see any damage, or undesired connections (caused by extensive use or plain dirt).
What you might be experiencing is the Talk Confirmation Tone aka Roger Beep. I have looked through the T4500 manual and do not see any instructions for turning it off, just that it is listed as a feature. However, something you might try is holding in the + (plus) button while turning on the radio and see if it disables the feature. This method is used on many of the other TalkAbout models.
If it is not the Roger Beep, it could be a low battery beep. But from your explanation it sounds more like a Roger Beep.
