Rose not to go to far off Chris's topic, but there is a product from Spot that will work with your smart-phone via satellite in areas where you have no cell phone reception. http://www.findmespot.com/en/index.php?cid=116
It gives you the ability to send email or text messages only, but better than nothing when you need help.
