My girlfriend and I live 6 miles away from each other. She has no wifi in her house and right now no way of communicating with me. So I was just curious is there anything that I can use to talk to her without wifi like and app or a walkie or talkie? We have tried apps like firechat but I live in the mountains so those don t work. We need something that works up to 6 miles and uses no wifi or service. Plz help! 🙁

I assume since there is no phone service there is no Internet access. Do not mistake WiFi with Internet access, they are two separate services.

Internet access provides an Internet service to your home. WiFi does not come from an Internet service provider. Internet comes from an ISP to a router in your home. The router can provide different interfaces to connect devices. The two most common are Ethernet (wired) and WiFi (wireless). You can have working Ethernet and WiFi for local networking without an Internet service.

Basically, if one (or both) does not have Internet access or phone services by land line or cellular service, then depending on local laws you may be able to use CB radio, although range can be limited. You could both become radio amateurs. Their equipment can have much better range depending on the amateur radio band that is used.

The other alternative is to use letters and the mail service.

Good luck.

I have several PRC 77 military back pack radios that I have modified to run on a regular 12 volt Battery 6 miles is no problem and I have used them out to 40 + miles line of site with the long range antenna . They can be gotten for about 400 $ each… You wanna play U have to pay !
Mr. Wizard:
Many cell phone providers have affordable subscription plans that allow you to call virtually anywhere in the U.S.–with NO long distance fees; so six miles shouldn't be a problem.

Might want to look into this.

Big Mouth:
When did 6 miles become long distance?
Bob:
How about Citizens Band radio? Six miles is easily within range, and once you've bought the kit, it's free to use. The only downside is that anyone else with CB can tune in on you, but if you're happy to accept this limitation then no problem.
Adrian:
Use a regular phone. Anything wireless can be listened to, by anyone else with the same wireless gear.
If you have Internet in both houses, look into some VOIP phone service if you want private lines.
Toya:
you live 6 miles away and you think that's long distance?? lmao, me and my boyfriend live 32………6 miles from each other
PurpleVeridia:
Short wave radios or old fashioned CB style boxes maybe. But they might not be private. Try to find long rang walkies, they will be the most private. Try survival stores, all the places preppers get supplies. They will have what you need.
