SOS Assist Plan
Included with the Defy is 1 year of the Bullitt Satellite Messenger service's SOS Assist plan, provided by FocusPoint International. This plan allows the SOS button on the Defy to function, connecting you to Bullitt's response center through their app when pressed. The response centers are professionally staffed with someone available 24/7/365. The plan also offers international language support and escalation to local emergency services if you require them.

Additional plans add functionality, such as activating the Defy's built-in "check-in" button and letting you text with anyone. The "check-in" button shares your current location when pressed. Each plan above SOS Assist requires either a monthly or yearly fee and differs from each other by the number of messages they allow per month. SOS messages are always unlimited. Check with Bullitt for current plan specifications and pricing.

Saw the negative review on connectivity. Seems more like a competitor trashing the product than a real review. Please comment?
