The first thing I am going to do is throw my phone away.
I don't like the idea of having a gps unit on me or any trace that I am even alive to the authorities.
The people I made my plans with already know where to be and what to do without using a phone.
Anyone I am worried about when we get separated already know where and when to meet.
A phone would be obsolete to me at that point.
Besides,why would you assume it would still work.If you no pay the bill then you no have the phone.It might last for a month if you are lucky in my opinion.

If, I stress IF, it's even possible to use a cell phone in Sit-X I suppose I'd grab a couple of those pre-paid phones that are so popular with the illegal immigrants and drug dealing/using high school kids. I'd grab a Nokia because I have a dynamo that will charge the battery.

It depends on the Sit X and your location. Pinpointing your exact location via cell masts is bloody difficult if you are NOT in a city. Cities have many, many towers and can pinpoint you to maybe a 100yds radius or less. If you are miles from nowhere (and still have a signal) then the cell radius can be measured in square miles.
IMHO they are great for every day carry items especially considering the various apps you can install on them. If the grid goes down then yes, it becomes less usefull. Dont forget, if your battery has power still then it can light fire. Thin strand of wire over the terminals and some tinder and Bobs your uncle.
