Great phoneLove this phone!! We use it for our pool emergency phone 5hits the spotreceived in three days. got SIM from pure talk in same mail. Works as advertised. Easy to use by my 93 year old Father.cheapest way to provide back up emergency communications. Works in remote areas ( State park with limited cell reception).would be great in emergency kit or backup for full time RV living. 5A great phoneThe spare one was a great phone, it lives up to all the abuse it is put through and is truly an HPC product, for its price, it is worth its money. The only hitch is that I could not access the spare one site though to register and access the GPS on it. Does anyone know of an alternative URL for spare one? 5Emergency CallingWhen I press the red cross, it calls 112. How do I get it to call 911? 1unique productpurchased two of these phones. just for emergencies. one in my car and one for the house.just in case a storm hits and we lose power, this will be a great phone to have as it can last 10 hours on a single battery.i just pray that if and when a storm were to hit, cell towers arent affected. if so, the phone would be useless.perhaps would be cool if they can come out with the same sort of phone for emergencies but a sattelite phone instead?otherwise its a very basic phone which i tested and seems to work just fine once you slip your sim card in. 4Never used it, just peace of mind.Can't say much about it. This look like the best product around. Don't need it now. Just preparing for my GO BAG in case of earthquake or other natural disaster. 4NEED BETTER INSTRUCTIONSHard to understand instructions. 1Skip it until they come out with 3G or LTE versions...The idea behind these devices is a sensible one: Make a cheap GSM phone that can operate on a disposable AA battery and keep it for emergencies. Here's the problem: The days of the GSM network in the U.S. are numbered. When the GSM networks go offline, these phones will be useless. Also, these devices aren't cheap.AT&T and T-mobile have already begun taking their GSM networks offline in some areas, and AT&T has indicated that it will turn off the GSM network everywhere in the U.S. by 2017.There is an easy fix: The maker of this phone just needs to make the phones support the new 3G standard which currently works on all AT&T and T-Mobile towers in the U.S. Even better, they could make the phones support the next generation for mobile voice, LTE. I realize that this would add to the cost, but at $50, this phone is already overpriced.This phone includes no screen, no flip mechanism, no battery, and no 3G, and so it should be cheaper than the comparable Samsung. With no screen, there's no way to determine if you've dialed a wrong number until you hit send and see who answers. To make matters worse, the tones that are generated when you push a button are wrong. For example, when you push 9, it sounds like you are pressing 0. All the digits are off in the same manner. So, even if you could recognize the tones by the sound they make, you won't be able to use that skill on this phone to verify that you dialed the correct number. Finally, with no screen, you can't send a text message. In a disaster where mobile networks are overloaded, text messages are much more likely to get through - yet you won't be able to send them with this.Right now, you can buy an un-subsidized Samsung flip phone that will work on AT&T or T-Mobile for about $20.00. Those phones support 3G (not merely GSM), and include a rechargeable lithium ion battery, a color screen, and web browser. If you want to be able to power it using AA batteries, you can buy the Energizer Instant Charger for Micro USB Mobile Phones.At $50.00, this product is way overpriced, and is already useless in some places and will be useless everywhere in less than 5 years. 1sim cardI still have not found a gsm sim care - the only store selling are the Att locations. The clerk gave me a sim card, refused toexplain the system and told me I would have to buy a servilce from them to make it work. T-Mobile is the only other sourceand there is no outlet anywhere near me. Another informant said I would have to buy a phone card at varying prices tomake it work. So far I have it set up for emergency calls, but would like to use it occasionally for other uses, likescreaming at the U-Verse tech support. And finally, the sim card given me at Att fell out and I never got to use it.Why can't you provide more info on the matter in the package? I spoke with one of your sales people who told meto get a card at Walmart - Walmart does not sell cards. 1Only 911 callsThis phone is useful in case of an emergency to call 911 but not to be used as an extra phone.The spareone website is not active.Att reps had no clue about the phone even though the att go phone instruction manual mentions it and an annual plan. No such plan exist with att. Only option provided was a $0.25/min use with a prepaid min of $100. I thought it was still a great option until I went online to activate an Att go phone SIM card online that I purchased at Walgreens. Bummed out I could not complete the process.However happy I can call 911 in case of an emergency. So if your okay with only that option then this is the phone for you.I was hoping to keep mine in my car In case I had to do just that or call somebody. I will still keep it in my car in case of emergency. So it is useful after all. 3
