This is a good idea.
I had a friend that went to Sturgis this year. He went for an afternoon ride in the "Hills", alone. He came around a curve and there was a deer standing in the road.
When he swerved, he lost control and crashed, out of sight of the road. He layed there, in and out of conciousness the rest of that day and all night. The next morning he was able to crawl back to the side of the road and was found. He was life flighted and put in ICU for a couple days with some broken ribs, collapsed lung, lacerated spleen, trashed shoulder and minor head injuries. After a few more days he was released and sent to stay with his parents who live a couple hours away.
We all held our breaths for a few days but then he was alright. For several days his recovery was going well then one evening while watching TV he suddenly stood up and said, "I think we need to call an ambulance".
Then he collapsed and died. We never heard the final story but all suppose it was a stroke or heart attack caused by a blood clot.

The moral of the story is, if he had his cell phone maybe he could have gotten medical attention sooner. Nobody knows if it would have helped in the end, but it sure couldn't have hurt.
We have this technology, keep it handy.
