I thought I'd put this one out there. i carry an old Moto Razr digital/analog (yes, the flip phone) in my car bag. One thing that most folks don't know is that even if a phone has no contract (IE cell service thru a provider like Verizon or AT&T) it will still dial 911 and provide a GPS location (if the phone has GPS) for emergency services. I carry this phone in case i have an accident and my full service cell phone is lost or damaged or if I have to bail out of my vehicle and only have time to grab my car bag.
Anyone else do this?
