The CheckOnMe Plus Service will send messages and texts even if your phone is damaged or there is no phone service where you are. By not responding to a Check On request, the Service will wait until the expiration of your designated grace period for the text message before sending it. This provides the subscriber the ability of notifying others of their intended location and can ask for help even if they are unable to communicate. For a nominal fee, the Subscriber can activate the "Last Known Location" feature where the Subscriber last location is also sent with the text messages. Subscribers can pause the Service for a period when he/she is aware that they will be in an area (on flights, etc.) where they cannot acknowledge the Check On request.
