    Who here is not afraid to bring their iPhone camping?
    If you do not bring your iPhone do you bring a different phone?

    I would guess you??

    And you only have yourself to blame when it ends up in the middle of the lake.

    I bring mine but only for the app that wipes my ass. Nice not having to remember to pack the toilet paper.

    What does Siri have to say about that??

    Nothing pleasant, I'm sure. :eek:

    The mountain lions 'round these parts are quite fond of iPhones. So I bring my droid.

    You shouldn't do it, waloshin. I hear that's what Filipinos do.

    I've brought my iPhone camping at least a few times in the last year, including field work during the day. No problems.

    Just keep it away from the pit toilet. ;)

    I'm sure that Siri has the procedure well licked.

    Is that an iPhone in your hand, or are you just buzzing with excitement?

    I bring my iPhone camping. It protects me from the bears.

    I've never been REAL camping but I bought it with me to a cabin in Algonquin Park. I didn't use it. There was no cell service and it was nice to be off the grid. I left straight there from work so it was with me though.

    I've always taken my iPhone with me when I go camping during festival season. Battery life is poor, but it's convenient to have. It acts as my GPS, flashlight, point and shoot camera and sometimes entertainment :) I charge up when I can, usually during a Tesco run (beer and supplies on site are way too overpriced)

    Resolvable with a solar battery charger.

    I actually rarely go anywhere without my cell phone, in case of emergency (I usually have to drive to get wherever I am going). Of course, this doesn't help if there's no service wherever you go, but usually there is at least on the road.

    I take my phone on holiday but I don't use it for calls really. I mostly use it to take advantage of any Wi-Fi that may be around.

    Thanks for spamming your product around the forums. (All of SolarNinja's 11 posts have been about the product.)
    I'll also let you know that I'll never support a business that spams other sites.

    Also, thanks for reviving a Wally thread. :rolleyes:
