Mobile Coverage information
Option 1: H2O Wireless SIM card (AT&T network)
The LiveLife Mobile Alarm can come with a Micro SIM card from H2O Wireless installed and activated. It therefore has it’s own mobile phone number which will be supplied to you and details of your ‘H2O Wireless’ login so you can check on your usage.
USA 3G Mobile Coverage
Your H2O Wireless SIM (AT&T) gives you full coverage across either the AT&T 3G Mobile Network. Both these networks give the widest coverage across the USA and cover 98.5% of US population and cover 1.3 million square miles.
These networks are ideal for a mobile personal, medical alarm because of the wide coverages and the fact that the AT&T network has great coverage in metro and rural areas. You can check the AT&T Mobile Coverage Map here.
When checking the coverage map enter your street and suburb/town in the search bar field. It is the orange “voice” colored areas that apply to the Mobile Alarm.
Finding out if there will be a strong enough signal
Most of the time checking the coverage map will be adequate to ascertain whether the Mobile Alarm will have a strong enough signal inside the home of the user. However as we know some homes can fall within coverage black spots due to hills, buildings and other obstructions.
Ideally there should be between 1 to 2 bars or more on a AT&T connected device inside the home as a guide. If you have an AT&T connected mobile phone that has a weak or inconsistent signal or have had visitors to your home who have experienced a weak AT&T signal you may wish to discuss with us a SIM card from the other provider as an alternative.
The upcoming closure of the 2G mobile networks
AT&T will be closing the 2G network soon. Most of the mobile alarms presently on the market continue to be limited to using 2G and therefore those alarms will stop working soon. The LiveLife mobile alarm works with a 3G chip and is compatible with all 3G and 4G phones.
Why use the 3G network and not the newer 4G network?
The LiveLife Mobile Alarm uses only the ‘Voice’ and ‘Text’ parts of the mobile network. The 4G mobile network is ideal for high speed data. This alarm does not use any data to perform any of it’s functions and therefore the best mobile network is 3G because it has wider coverage than the present AT&T 4G mobile network.
