Just like its name describes it to be, the SpareOne Emergency Phone is precisely that-- a device meant to be an emergency phone you can use in times of need. It is this exact reason why it is a unique phone from other models under the GoPhone prepaid lineup. In addition to that, the phone is powered by two double A batteries instead of a Li-Ion or Li-Po battery. Other features available include a flashlight, an SOS signal, and a panic siren.
Although the SpareOne Emergency Phone does not work like a "normal" modern phone should, it does serve its purpose by letting people know of your location in times of trouble. Other than that, the phone works well in extreme temperatures of between -22 degrees Fahrenheit and 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
The SpareOne Emergency Phone will start selling through AT&T website and retail stores beginning November 6. It will be sold for $59.99 with an option to get it under an annual service plan of only $25 inclusive of 120 minutes as well as Locate and Alert services.
