I want to use 2 (or more) iPhones as walkie talkie (i.e. they talk each other without needing internet/voice call).

Of course this should work with wifi, because it doesn't make much sense a to have bluetooth or usb connection for this application...

There are several apps that will do this in the iTunes Store. The search to use is "walkie talkie". I recommend you look first at Walkie-Talkie - iOS.

The point here is someone doing that search and recommending a single good app that will do the job. – cregox May 28 '11 at 14:39
This app looks good. Please someone post this as answer so that I can accept it. – michelemarcon May 30 '11 at 9:44

There's an app for that™.

WiChat will allow you to chat with the Bonjour protocol, that is, chatting with people on the local network without connecting to an external server.

Nice, but this is for IM, not actual voice talk. – michelemarcon May 27 '11 at 10:00
