I've had one of these since January 2011. I use it in tandem with an iPhone and dual SIM cards. I like it.

I mainly use it mountaineering/climbing, biking and kayaking. It handles the odd call or text; letting people know I'm safe, and find that it can easily go for a couple of weeks without charge. I normally leave 3G off and don't use any of the 'features'. In fact I often find myself charging it just in case rather than because it needs it.

It is quite large by modern phone standards, but that means you can use it with gloves and when your hands and fingers are cold. It's also loud in Outdoor mode with a great speaker phone.

It's not a Search and Rescue Transponder or substitute for channel 16 on a VHF radio but it does have a useful emergency mode. Press the volume button 4 times and it will text 3 defined numbers, with a predefined message. In emergency mode the phone will auto answer an incoming call and switch to speaker phone.

It's a very specific tool for a limited number of jobs and does them better than the best smartphones.
