    Re: Are these sentences correct? Please help

    In all cases you need walkie talkie (you'll sometimes see it hyphenated) or walkie talkies in the plural.

    You call someone on a walkie talkie. A pager is a different gadget.

    Please note that Walkie talkie would have been a better thread title. I have asked you before to give your threads more meaningful titles.
