Do You have A Back Up Plan for Your Cell?

While Traveling in Colorado, I experienced a cell phone outage over several days. The Version switching equipment in Aurora Colorado failed. The result was shutting down most Version cell phone service in the state for 24 hours, and delivering sporadic service for another three days.

One lesson learned is all technical equipment can fail. If we allow ourselves to become overly dependent, we get into trouble.

 In the “old” days, we had phone booths to make calls, now these are few and far between.  As times change, we need to adapt our back up plans. For me, I bought a cheep prepaid back up cell on another network.

In your planning, keep in mind; what is your back up for everything important?
