Cellphone for a biker on the backroads?

Every year my DH hits the back roads on his bike, most of the time alone. I've been bugging him to get a phone to take with him since he dumped the bike a couple of years ago while riding alone. He hit a road that was covered in sand and couldn't pull up before he hit the ditch. The bike was not too bad, but he separated his shoulder and had to wait for someone to help him get it out of the ditch as he couldn't call roadside assistance. Of course, he wants me to find the phone and I haven't a clue. So what's the best for him? [more inside]

Farmer Cell Phone?

Trying to find a cell phone for my Dad, a farmer, who spends lots of time in noisy barns and on the tractor. In both cases, the ring and vibration features of a normal phone don't register. Is there a sturdy, simple phone with a very powerful vibration function (ideally one that builds gradually, so it doesn't shock the user!)? One compatible with ATT would be ideal.

Help explain this unusual cell phone behavior

Why do some people find it necessary to take their cell phone away from their ear and speak direct into the microphone? It's not as if they are trying to speak in a lower vice to be courteous, or that they are using the speakerphone or push-to-talk function. I find it odd, I don't understand why and I don't really want to ask the person doing it (unless you do it, if so, "why"). Thanks!

How to edit cell phone text information

A friend of a friend who does not care for me told his friend that I sent him a text mesage to his cellphone and even showed his friend the message however, I did not send the message, do not know this person's cell ph # nor do I know his last name. The question is, how did he show my cell ph # as having sent a text message to his cell ph. It must be possible because my friend saw my # attached to this message in the inbox in his cell ph .

Are phone polls biased toward landlines?

How accurate are political polls in the age of the cell phone? Here's why I ask: Out of nine folks in my office, seven of us have no landlines in our homes; we are mobile exclusive. Of the those seven, six are voting Obama and one is voting McCain. The two of us with landlines are split one to one for Obama-McCain. Any pollsters working in our neck of the woods would see the race in a dead heat, one to one. In reality, we're seven to two. So, aren't the polls growing more skewed with every passing year? Do some pollsters actually call cell-phone users? If not, there's a bias.
