Did you know, that as long as a cell phone is charged it can call 911?? it doesn't even have to be an active phone or have a provider, just has to be charged!!! SOO, do you have a teen that you don't want to have a cell phone because of using minutes, but are scared of them not having a way to call 911? Give them an old cell, and keep it charged, or you can keep one in your glove box, or around the house somewhere in case of emergency!!!

I didn't know this, but am glad I do!! I have 3 old cell phones, and I put one in my glove box, one in my basement, and one in my bedroom. I marked on the calender every 1st of the month, to charge them, so they stay charged!!!

This is great advice. You can also bring them to your local police department, have them donated to battered womens shelters, or people who can't afford phones but need one in case of an emergancy
