    This is a good idea.

    What a poorly designed product…

    No mention of what cellular bands it supports? Seems pretty critical that you can get reception in an emergency…

    there r surely better alternatives

    It's all well and good but you still have to tote it around so it's another gadget to add to the endless list of gadgets we already cram into our pockets and keeping it stashed away in your cars cubby (glove box to alternative English speakers) is not ideal. A neat idea nonetheless and hopefully it'll be at hand should you ever need it.

    it it was a satellite phone that didn't required cellphone signal, that actually would've been cool..

    What, Microsoft doesn't make Nokia cheap models any more ?

    This phone is pretty good considering that it only has one less gig of RAM than the iPhone 6.

    One question where is Michael Fisher? I haven't seen him in awhile? Did he quit? Was he fired? Where is he?

    Like the idea of this in theory, the ancient Motorola 520 can run on a few AAs in a pinch. Probably could have ruggedised it a little more for the $60 though, or given it a very basic screen like an F3 for messages and status indicators, dig the paper phone book there.

    I personally keep a dirt-cheap Samsung E1270 ready to go, always good to keep an extra low-profile number if nothing else.

    Any cellphone can call 911, even with no contracted service. This at least offers a few other features. Otherwise, not with it.

    Try leaving that phone in your glove box during the summer and that phone will be useless once the batteries leak acid everywhere or explode.

    My opinion(s):
    Hmmm, isn't that what the… crank radio is for? And what about all those portable power banks?

  • Matthew Lemmers
    Posted at 14:20h, 17 March

    This is pretty stupid honestly, better off just having a flip phone or using a land line. It is pretty much just a bare bones radio shoved inside of the phone body. I guess where there is a market for something though

    screw that, ill take this as my 3rd primary phone, I got one of those free government Zte phones and the touch screen is wonky and the battery last a day at most, if I got this phone instead I would never have to worry about batteries since mine are all rechargeable and I have lots of them ( instead of looking for batteries I usually just end up going to the store and buying a new battery charger because it usually comes with 4 batteries, wistful I know ).

  • Siknik64

    Just wait, someone's going to buy this phone and think that's it. Then they won't pay for the service plan and be stuck with a useless phone.

    90% of this comment section has no idea what this phone is intended for. It's the kind of thing you throw in a first aid kit or the back of you car for an EMERGANCY. It's not something you keep in your pocket every day to make calls on.

    Why not buy a gun?

    $60 ? really? These days everything is overpriced because people are damn wealthy and money farming is the ultimate occupation for common people. 😀

  • JUMP23MΔN

    How about just having a a portable battery pack… and if you're really in a disaster, how about you chill out on watching Netflix, periscope and playing games on your phone to save the battery.
