Cell Phone in Emergencies

  1. You may know this already — I do now.

    When there's a brown/blackout, 9/11, shooting etc emergency the voice cell phone system gets shut down due to the overload of callers, but,
    text messaging continues to work, even if queing occurs the message will get through.

    Advise those you need to to text message if and when you and they are in the midst of such emergencies.
  2. Good idea, but have you noticed how trying to send a txt, as fast as possible, always seems to take about 10 minutes?
  3. Get lessons from someone under 18 - you can reduce that 10 minutes to about 50 seconds.
