well i thought people may want a way to charge any electronic devices, not just mobile phones. seeing as its in the desert which has an abundant source of sun, i thought a solar powered charger might help one or two people out with some eco-friendly power supply.
if it helps i'm glad if not too bad.

think of how reusable it is!!! you can stick it to your window at home and charge your mobile, thus saving on future electricity bills!!!
it powers my ipod and psp too! no problems like!

well 2 out of 3 days ain't bad!!
Glastonbury use their brains and get a mobile phone provider to errect a mast on site to give a full strength signal to all!!
and the only time you won't get a signal at coachella will be after headliners when everyones trying to find friends and overloads the system!
it is after all on the outskirts of a populated area, so i only presume that people in indio have and use mobile phones!

Rent a phone while you are here Sheri, I am sure there is a travel agency or some place that does that in England...

if its a recent phone it should work all over the world if its amodel out in the last 12 - 18 months you'll be fine they all work everywhere!!
well mostly.
check online with the manufacturer and your service provider they should be able to tell ya!!
but if i was you i'd get the phone unblocked and get a sim card stateside so you'll get local calls at a local price between friends there.

I'll be getting a new phone before the festival so that's great :).
I'll just buy a sim card when I'm over there, should be easy enough to get hold of.

Thanks guys.
