Just came across this on UK CLIMBING site. its worth knowing, never really thought about it before.

Details here: http://www.grough.co.uk/magazine/2010/11/18/sign-up-for-text-999-sc... of how to register your phone to enable it to SMS the emergency services. Out in the hills you may not be able to get a strong enough signal for voice but an SMS might get through. Takes about a minute, costs nothing and hopefully you will never need it.

Easy enough to do even I managed it. Thanks for that Rick, lets hope we never need to use it.
