Re: pick up other walkie talkies
Should do. The available channels are defined by the regulator rather than by the manufacturer.
Only thing to watch out for is similar looking devices designed to be sold into different markets (for instance, radios made to the European PMR446 standard work at a slightly lower frequency than those intended for sale in the US).

You might try contacting Giant Intl. 1-800-638-5119, [email protected] They produce the radio for Motorola and are able to troubleshoot over the phone or by email. I have read through the manual and did not find anything pertaining to this problem. http://shop.giantintl.com/Manuals.asp
What is your question about using the walkie talkie? These are standard FRS low power walkie talkies. You need to set both to the same channel. Turn both on. Push the transmit button and speak into the microphone which is on the face of the radio. You should hear the voice in the other walkie talkie.
Note; all of these FRS talkies have substantially less range than advertised. They should provide reliable service within about 1/4 mile line of sight, no more. In an urban environment with lots of buildings you will get less.
