How / Why is this better than a cell phone?
Several reasons: 1. If one falls they might not be able to access their cell phone, let alone call a number for help. 2. If it’s a dire emergency, one might not be able to speak. 3. MobileHelp can locate you in an emergency based on GPS location technology. 4. MobileHelp knows exactly who is calling for help.
