I actually bought this unit right after the New Year at my local WalMart. I'm so glad I did! I'm only 23 years old, but have been through some events in my past that have really made me feel unsafe. This device REALLY works! Let me tell you, I've already used it a few times. One time, I didn't feel safe walking to my car alone in a dark parking lot. I pressed the button, and a "5Star Agent" answered my button press within seconds. They asked me "Are you calling with an emergency?" and I immediately said "No, but I'm nervous about walking to me car." They stayed on the line with me until I actually made it INTO my car, started it up, and drove off! Then another time, I actually had PRE-pneumonia but didn't know it. I was getting short of breath but wanted to see an urgent care -- but didn't know where to go. Again, I pressed the button, and the agent QUICKLY identified WHERE I was, gave directions, and even called them for me to see the estimated wait, whether they took my insurance, and even gave them a "heads up" that I Was coming! Then I was REALLY floored when I took a trip out of state last week. Made 4-5 exits, and couldn't find gas! I Was scared, and it was like 3ish AM in the morning. These people helped call and find me an open gas station and stayed ON the line until I arrived, pumped my gas, got back in the car, and drove off! BUT WAIT! IT gets better! While I was pumping gas, a weird man walked up and approached me and didn't appear to have very good intentions at all. Looking at me, scoping me out and all -- LITTLE DID HE KNOW that I still had the 5Star agent "waiting" on the line while I pumped gas while my 5Star responder was on my key-chain w/ keys in my hand. Immediately, the agent said, "[NAME HERE], are you okay? DO I NEED TO SEND HELP To YOUR LOCATION?" And the man, IMMEDIATELY fled fearing that he'd probably get caught! I swear by this thing! DON'T HESITATE! JUST GET IT! PS: The reps are ALWAYS extremely friendly and ready to help -- REGARDLESS of your compromising situation!
