    The SMS text messages can get thru on the original 1x signals.... you probably have too weak of a signal to get a dial tone, but the text can slip thru in 5 seconds and "job done".

    I use SMS a lot when I am driving thru mountainous regions... no signal at all, but all the phone needs is a bit of a sniff and the text slides on thru.
