Are there really that many in the 2 billion around the world that are off the grid who could fork over $40 for a phone? Who are they going to call? The one other guy in the village across the ridge with a $40 solar phone? Will there even be good coverage where these people are? I guess they could call someone and say, "We're out of water, food and don't have any electricity. Can you help us out?"
