A mobile phone, cellular phone, cell phone, cellphone, handphone, or hand phone, sometimes shortened to simply mobile, cell or just phone, is a portable telephone that can make and receive calls over a radio frequency link while the user is moving within a telephone service area. The radio frequency link establishes a connection to the switching systems of a mobile phone operator, which provides access to the public switched telephone network (PSTN). Modern mobile telephone services use a cellular network architecture and, therefore, mobile telephones are called cellular telephones or cell phones in North America. In addition to telephony, digital mobile phones (2G) support a variety of other services, such as text messaging, MMS, email, Internet access, short-range wireless communications (infrared, Bluetooth), business applications, video games and digital photography. Mobile phones offering only those capabilities are known as feature phones; mobile phones which offer greatly advanced computing capabilities are referred to as smartphones.The development of metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) large-scale integration (LSI) technology, information theory and cellular networking led to the development of affordable mobile communications. The first handheld mobile phone was demonstrated by John F. Mitchell and Martin Cooper of Motorola in New York City in 1973, using a handset weighing c. 2 kilograms (4.4 lbs). In 1979, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) launched the world's first cellular network in Japan. In 1983, the DynaTAC 8000x was the first commercially available handheld mobile phone. From 1983 to 2014, worldwide mobile phone subscriptions grew to over seven billion; enough to provide one for every person on Earth. In the first quarter of 2016, the top smartphone developers worldwide were Samsung, Apple and Huawei; smartphone sales represented 78 percent of total mobile phone sales. For feature phones (slang: "dumbphones") as of 2016, the top-selling brands were Samsung, Nokia and Alcatel.

I'm mostly wanting better service in the woods! Still, must be reliable all around the OR & WA areas. I see Verizon is rated #1, with T-Mobile on their heals, but how are they when you're in the forest hunting or cleaning up your favorite shooting sites?
On another related note, is there a...

Anyone have any experience with these or similar devices....I have looked up a few companies that do similar...do they work as advertised? Or more like FRS/GMRS radios that promise 25 miles and can only get maybe 2.5 (yes i understand structures, electronic fields, etc).
Had to trench a 150 40 inch deep trench for a water line. Bad day. I cut a unknown power supply line. Was doe the ac. Then I loose my iPhone I believe somewhere in the trench or piles of dirt. Can't hear it when we call. Any ideas?
What Does It Really Take To Track A Million Cell Phones?
"What’s the difference between a Nokia 3310 and an iPhone 7? There isn’t any! As long as they are turned on, they can both locate you in real-time, 24/7, with a precision better than 1 square kilometer"
Saw this in the news today. A pistol that folds up to look like a cell phone. My initial reaction is this has more negative implications that good. Slow to deploy and doesn't really look like a cell phone up close, who carries two phones anyways (whats that on your belt?).
The wife and I got new cell phones so I am selling the old ones. They are both in great condition no damage of any kind. The note 4 is only a month old. The s6 is about 6 months old. Both phones are Verizon carrier and the s6 is the 64gig model. They both retail used for around 250-300. Will let...
