HAVEN'T HAD TO USE IT... YET!

I have never used my alert system so not sure how well it works. I am quite fond of the emergency care plan thogh. With my medical conditions it is really nice to have my records within hands reach at all times. I do not worry much anymore because my records are available all the time.

WONDERFUL TECHNOLOGY

Hallelujah!!! What would I have done without this outstanding technology? We had severe storms, and my electricity went out. During my adventure to the kitchen to find some candles I tripped over a rug because I could not see, and I fell. I had a hip replacement around 6 months back and could not get up. My alert worked! The ems showed up quickly and everyone was so friendly. God bless!

WORKED WHEN I NEEDED IT

I was building a gun rack in my wood working shop in the back lot of my property and I tripped over a toolbox and broke my leg. The customer service could not hear me but they sent help immediately. I would have laid there for days if I did not have a life fone alert.

My Two Cents...

The service itself is fine and we've never had a problem with it.

However, it's been a long time since we first got this thing and we've seen several commercials showing the newer devices that go even further than this one does. I'm confused as to how to upgrade.

This unit only allows us to go around the house, but doesn't work outside (like at the mailbox). vs. Newer units from other providers seem like they'd work halfway down the block with their 1000ft distances that they advertise. Is it possible to just upgrade this unit, or does LifeFone not offer these newer styles?

Also, it seems like we're overpaying for an outdated service. We're paying closer to $40 per month as opposed to the price that's advertised here. I don't see why we should be stuck paying a higher amount for an older unit when others get to have a newer style at a lower price... doesn't make sense.

VERY THOUGHTFUL COMPANY

the emergency response card came in handy when i was visitng my son in utah. none of the doctors in utah know my medical information and i was able to provide it when they arrived. it made things run much more smoothly.
