Riverwalker’s Gear - Survival Cell Phone - LG Shine

Being able to communicate during an emergency or a crisis is of the utmost importance.
One of the things I use is an LG Shine cell phone. This cell phone from AT&T, while fulfilling all the basic requirements for communication, also serves a dual use. The shiny mirror portion of the cell phone gives you increased options for survival. Even though the battery may go dead, the cell phone may break, or there may be no signal, it is still useful as a signal mirror. The use of a mirror as a signaling device is well known as a survival tool. It is always good to have items that are dual use. This saves money and helps you to be better prepared.

Cellular communications are notorious for being overloaded during and after disaster and will not work. Ham (two-way) radio equipment is much better, though it requires a licence. At least buy FRS radios; they are cheap, require no licence and are powered by of-the-shelf batteries.
