I have just had my landline switched and an emergency backup phone (Motorola FW500) supplied and connected. I have a very poor mobile signal where I live and rely on wifi calling and therefore I'm not sure that the emergency, mobile based service will work in the unlikely event that I need to call 999 when the broadband has failed.
1. As the unit supplied has a battery (and is kept plugged in to keep it charged), in the event of an emergency can I unplug it and carry into the garden where I might get a better signal, if need be?
2. Would it work better if I sited it near a window?
3. Does it only use your O2 network or any mobile signal it can find?
4. I take it that it can only be used for calling 999 not family/friends for emergency assistance?
