The Two Minute ICE Contact for Samsung Galaxy

What if I told you that you could put an ICE Contact on your Samsung Galaxy with everything it needs to have in it to save your life, in 2 MINUTES FLAT?

Would you grab your phone and go for it?  Of course you would!  In fact, even if you already have an ICE Contact on your smartphone, I guarantee that you’re probably missing a few key things.
Last week we showed you how to do a 2 Minute ICE Contact on your iPhone, so we thought this week, we’d switch things up so owners of Samsung Galaxy’s could get in on the fun.  So what are you waiting for?  Grab your phone and let’s get started!
1.  Put the word ICE, all capitals, in the First Name field.
2.  Put your ICE Contact’s first and last name in the Last Name field.
3.  Type in all of your contact’s phone numbers.  EVERY one that you have for them
4. Type in all of your contact’s email addresses — again, every last one.
5. Type in all of your contact’s social media handles/user names in the website section of your contact.  You never know what will be working in an emergency.  Many people have reached loved ones on Facebook and Twitter, when cell phone and landline service was down.
6. If you don’t have a field for Relationship, add one by adding new field and choosing the one called, oddly enough, Relationship.  Then choose or enter the way that this contact is related to you.
7. Your own allergies, medications and medical history go in the notes section.  Even better capitalize the words ALLERGIES, MEDICATIONS etc to ensure that they’re seen.
8.  You can also add your physician’s names and phone numbers in the notes section and if you like, a link to your own medical history form.  If you don’t have one, you can borrow one of ours.
9.  Is your contact in different locations on different days?  Add that in the notes section as well.
10. Instead of their photo, add an ICE Contact Graphic to the contact to make it stand out.  Here are a few to choose from.
11.  And finally, never, ever put your social security number or insurance member number into your ICE Contact.  You may put the name of your insurance company and their customer service number in if you like, but as long as your emergency contact comes to the hospital and can provide that information, it’s probably not necessary.
And there you have it.  One fully loaded ICE Contact.  Two Minutes.
While you’re here, be sure to check out our other posts like How To Put and ICE Contact On Your Samsung Galaxy or How To Put An ICE Contact On Your iPhone, or  to learn EVERYTHING you need to know about ICEing your phone. 
And while you’re feeling proactive, don’t forget to put ICE Contacts on your spouse’s and kid’s phones too, along with each other’s contact information.

How Satellite Phones Can Keep You Connected To Your Business & Family

52 POST Satellite Phones Iridium Extreme HOTSPOT

Updated On 4/26/21

top20postsquaregold

To us, one of the worst things that all of the recent disasters had in common, was that they left millions of people — millions of families — disconnected from everything that they needed not only to survive, but to recover. 

And with the way the world has been the last few years — from hurricanes to wildfires, tornadoes and oh yeah, COVID — having an ICE contact is the perfect way to keep your family safe and connected no matter WHAT is happening around you.
Natural disasters can strike at any time, leaving you and your family stranded without the ability to do something as simple as make a phone call.  Over the last few years, the United States has experienced wildfires in California, tornadoes throughout the Gulf Coast, flooding near rivers and devastation caused by hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.  While physical essentials like food, water and shelter are often limited during disasters, communications are often overlooked as an emergency resource.  In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico experienced an outage of their land-based networks that are used for landlines and cell phone usage.  First responders relied on satellite communications in order to coordinate relief efforts, and afflicted families were able to connect with their loved ones using satellite phones.
In a disaster, there is a risk that telephone lines may fail quickly – and those that don’t can be overloaded with users attempting to place calls.  Satellite communications may become the only alternative as your ‘cellular tower in the sky’.  Iridium provides satellite connectivity with its network of 66 Low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites that brings reliable service to anyone throughout the world.  Satellite connectivity is a critical emergency resource and backup communications source that allows you, your family, and colleagues to stay safe, aware and connected during a crisis. 

Is There One Phone That Stands Out From The Others?

As a matter of fact there is.  Iridium.  Iridium is the only provider that offers truly global coverage for mobile satellite devices.  Some providers have large stationary satellites placed in space over 22,000 miles away in Geostationary Orbit (GEO).  Given the distance away from Earth, satellite providers with LEO constellations, like Iridium, tend to experience lower latency on phone calls and provide coverage in areas that cannot be served by GEO constellations.  For example, if you’re stranded in a mountainous area, you may struggle to have a clear line of sight between your satellite phone and a GEO satellite.  With LEO satellites, terrain blockages resolve themselves as the satellites move overhead.
Iridium’s network of 66 LEO satellites continually orbiting the earth supplies clear and reliable communications no matter where you are.  Iridium offers easy-to-use satellite phones and devices that can quickly connect you to the Iridium network, and allow you to place calls during a crisis, especially when cellular connectivity is unavailable. 

How Do I Choose A Satellite Device?

Another benefit of a LEO network is the compact and mobile products associated with it.  For example, Iridium GO!® is a small ‘modem’ that connects your smartphone to the Iridium satellite network.  Simply load the Iridium GO! mobile application to your smartphone, connect it to the Iridium network and place a call.  Iridium GO! provides multiple options to stay in touch. You can check email, send a text, update your social media accounts or send an SOS message when in need.   

IMG_0035

The Iridium satellite phone, called Iridium Extreme®, is suitable for users on the move. It has a rugged design that can withstand harsh conditions, and features an SOS-button for emergency situations. The SOS button  automatically dials the GEOS emergency response center, a part of the International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC), providing a connection to a live support representative.  The SOS-functionality requires users to register online in order to initiate this emergency response service, and once pushed, the SOS button will send location data for response coordination with local public authorities. The button is programmable so corporations or organizations can have emergency calls routed to their internal response center if needed.

How Do I Use A Satellite Device?

An Iridium satellite phone is nearly as easy to use as a regular phone. However, here are some tips to keep you connected at all times. When using your satellite device, it is important that you ensure the device has been fully charged.  When placing a call from a satellite phone, make sure you have a clear view of the sky in order to connect to the network.  To place a call, simply dial 001 (US country code) followed by the phone number.

Having an emergency plan is a necessity in any household.  Ensuring you have a guaranteed and reliable communication source that works with you wherever you go is the best way to stay safe and connected during a disaster.  When preparing for a disaster, be sure to include an Iridium #SatellitePhone and #HotSpot in your emergency kit.

Need More Room In Your Samsung Galaxy ICE Contacts?

https://amzn.to/2ONrjAR43 POST More Room Samsung Galaxy galaxy note 20Updated On 3/2/21

Need More Room In Your ICE Contacts?  

Like most smartphones, your Samsung Galaxy lets you change, add or create fields inside the contact, so that you can customize it as much as you like. 

Here’s how to do it.

To add fields to your contact, press and hold the field name until the menu appears.  This will give you alternate field names to choose from, including the option to Create Your Own Field, so you can add whatever information you need.

samsungpostgraphic3

In fact, we suggest that people put all of the information they possibly can into their iCE Contacts.  For example:
  • Your emergency contact’s Main Number/Cell number/Work number, by adding additional phone number fields
  • Their Email Addresses & IM, Twitter and Facebook address (in case landlines are down & you need to send an emergency message through email or a direct message via social media)
  • Other info, for example, days that the contact is at a certain location
But what about information that doesn’t fit into a Galaxy field?  That’s when you turn to your new best friend – the Notes section.   Notes holds quite a bit of information like your Allergies, Current Medications or the Names & Numbers of your Physicians.  So if you run out of room in the regular fields, simply put the rest of the information you need to communicate, in there.

Why You NEED Social Media Links In Your ICE Contacts

Why You Need Social Media Links In Your ICE Contact

Okay, phone numbers and an email address maybe, but why should I put my emergency contact’s Facebook or Twitter link in my ICE Contact?

Glad you asked…

In the middle of a busy, but quiet day in a Midwestern university lecture hall, the silence was pierced by a sudden hail of gunfire.  Students ran out of the hall and ducked under tables. Those who couldn’t move tried to make themselves as invisible as possible until help arrived. That day at Northern Illinois University, five students lost their lives. Many others were injured. As the police and security were struggling to control the situation, a number of the student’s parents not only knew that their children were all right, but they knew exactly what was happening in real time. So how did some people have a window into the NIU tragedy while others did not? Facebook and Twitter! As unlikely as it sounds, students ingeniously found a way to use their favorite method of keeping in touch with friends, as a tool to connect to the outside world in the middle of a crisis.
Students caught under desks and tables grabbed their smartphones and started communicating. Tweets went out on Twitter, notes and messages went up on Facebook pages, telling friends and family that students, who were literally in the thick of things, were all right. Others told loved ones or security officers the location of trapped students, facilitating their rescue. Friends started texting each other to find out where everyone was and, in the hours that followed, created Facebook pages memorializing the fallen. It was an amazing display of people, who are connected 24/7, using that same technology to communicate, connect, survive and heal.
That story has played out again and again during Oklahoma tornadoes, Superstorm Sandy and even the Japan earthquake.  In fact during the Japan earthquake, cell phone towers barely worked because of earthquake damage and overloaded networks.  But Wi-Fi?  Wi-Fi  was up and running.  So the things that the Japanese connected with their families and the outside world, were Twitter, Facebook, Skype and YouTube!
Smartphones, tablets and notebook computers are a phenomenal way to stay in touch during an emergency. Whether you send an email, text, tweet or Facebook message, you can find out the location and condition of everyone you love in seconds.
And the best way to do that, is to include the links (or screen names) of your family’s social media accounts, right inside your ICE Contact.  Not only will this ensure that you remember the strange assortment of letters in Uncle Fred’s screen name, but it will also give emergency personnel another way to reach your family members, if you need help.  

iphone6graphic2

In a dire emergency, you can even send help, confirm or update emergency plans and even mobilize family and friends using social media, because with it, you’ll always have real time information.  
The one thing about emergencies, is that they’re completely unpredictable.  The best way to prepare for them, is to give yourselves as many different avenues of communication as possible.
You never know which one will make the difference.
