I would also recommend this phone for the elderly.

To make matters worse, the tones that are generated when you push a button are wrong.

I've had this phone for a little while, and used it for about a 2-week period as my primary phone. Overall, it's a good emergency phone, but lacks some features that I consider critical for an emergency device.

Let's start with the good:
- Unlocked: Yep...just take your SIM card and drop it in. It even comes with a convenient adapter for mini-SIMs.
- AA Power: Probably the single most important feature. It runs off of the most common battery ever! Lithium batteries will get you roughly 10-hours of talk-time, and have a 10-15 year shelf-life.

Features that I'm indifferent about:
- Light: While having a LED light is a nicety, I'd gladly give it up in favor of more useful features.
- Price: $60 was a good price for a phone this simple, but I see that it's now $120 on their website...a tad on the pricey side for what you get.

To be a "real" emergency phone, we need a few features:
- SMS: SMS takes significantly less bandwidth and power than a phone call. In fact, SMS will frequently work when phone calls will not. I don't even need T9/predictive text...make it simple abc/123 texting and save on power that way.
- Screen: I get the idea that they wanted to ditch the screen to conserve power...but seriously...it runs on AAs. How about a cheap LCD screen?
- Ruggedized: It's an emergency phone...chances are that it'll be abused. While their "fix" was to provide a waterproof bag, I'd much rather have the phone itself ruggedized to protect against water/dust/shock/etc.

All in all, it's not a bad phone for the $60 price point. $120 is a bit excessive, especially considering that it lacks -- what I consider critical -- SMS functionality.

Bought for my senior parents to keep in car. Hoping they will use it if they get lost, disoriented, or have car failure. Phone emits beep when turned on, then emergency button can be pushed and 911 is dialed automatically. Phone emits a signal when the off button is pressed. Should be easy for them to use.

received 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.

This emergency phone works great. Although I did not buy it from amazon, it is essential to have in any car, emergency first aid kit, or a child's backpack. It is very simple to use. In any emergency, just press the red cross to call 911. The phone has GPS to notify 911 of your location. And if you are traveling, just slip in a prepaid sim card and you're set! I would also recommend this phone for the elderly. Big buttons and ease of use it very important in a phone like this. Overall a great buy without any flaws so far!

It seems it can stand NE U.S. summers and winters in the glove compartment of a car parked outdoors without anything going wrong with it, so, very impressive!

It's now buried in my step-daughters car for emergencies. Its just a 10 dollar phone with long lift batteries. Don't pay over 25 dollars for it. I paid 50 and got fleeced.
