    I still use my original cell as my home phone and for work. It has the ability to make and receive phone calls, which is all I expect a phone to do.

    The difference between us---not counting trip length---is I don't have a car parked anywhere for emergency Exit---so I get dropped off at the beginning of a trip and picked up at the end. I'm assuming you park somewhere and go backpacking and then return to your car. Without a car, a cellphone helps in changing schedules and pickup points---and of course peace of mind about home concerns and alerts on family emergencies.
