Can autobots contact each other remotely via comlink? Remember in ROTF, when Sam & Co. were in Egypt, and NEST had just arrived, they didn't use Bumblebee or the twins to contact them and give them their location. They also needed Simmons to contact NEST to tell them to come to Egypt. In contrast, in TF1, Starscream mobilised all the decepticons by broadcasting a single message. We also had Soundwave relaying messages to and fro between Decepticons. Therefore, can we conclude that Movie Autobots can't communicate through remote comlinks like their cartoon counterparts? Was there any part in either movie where they communicated long distance? Let's not include Prime & Bumblebee's messages to space. Those were a different form of communications. They were not direct radio messages to a single party.
