    I actually carry 2 cellphones and a 5 watt VHF Amateur Transceiver, set to various frequencies for contacts through repeaters or simplex communications.

    I always have my phone with me. You never know when you might need one. I also text with my buddies when we are hunting to keep track of where the deer are. Just put it on vibrate and your good to go.

    I always carry mine, even if i get no service in the area i'm hunting. If nothing else it's a compact camera when i'm successful. Keep it on silent. Many a day i was able to extend my time on stand, kill the boredom by sending a text or two to my wife. "oops, honey, i gotta go, there's a buck coming." Woulda' been outa there long before that if not able to pass the time and stay occupied. Killed a decent buck while waiting for a text.

    I carry my cell phone for that exact reason. You never know what will happen even if you get lost at least you can call to let someone know to send help.

    No reception in some of the areas I hunt but I take it with me anyway. If they find me at least it will make it easier for authorities to locate someone that knows me. With all the positive comments on SPOT I'll have to check it out.

    I always carry my cell, but I turn it off. I have had the same experience with the phone searching for a signal and rapidly discharging the battery. I'm interested in technology like the SPOT or an EPIRB. How about a future review? Send me one, and I'll test it by getting lost!

    Sorry to hear about your buddy,wallofsam.
    I take my cell phone with me and place it in a plastic newspaper bag to keep moisture and condensation out of it.
    I usually keep it turned off, as the phone seems to wear down searching for cell towers. When I get to the top of a hill, I'll turn it back on to see if there are any messages.

    I always take mine with me I just mute it and throw it in a zip top bag incase of emergencies. I get decent reception where I hunt, but if you do not I agree with Clay Cooper you should carry a "SPOT".
