Hello all. I was excited that Relay was finally available for ordering, however when it came down to it, I did not place an order yet.
The first problem was that my primary point of interest was having something which I could have with me “always”, even when without wearing anything with pockets. There were pictures a while back showing a bunch of neat carrying accessories, but I could not find it now, and they do not appear to be available at this point in time. Please include the descriptions/pictures of these options, and if possible, an estimate when they will be available. No matter how wonderful Relay turns out to be, if I can’t carry it under all conditions, it is just another “cell phone” I leave laying around and it does me no good.
Next, the information on what it DOES is kind of limited, but I was able to piece together enough to see that for my purposes, it’s not yet worth the monthly cost. I’m quite pleased with the ability to only get calls from other Relays on my account or whom I give access via an app, but it is a problem that if I attempt to call someone with the app, they only know it if the app is open. With no children and only grownups in my “network”, this makes contacting anyone except the other Relay holder “impossible”. Is there any chance that eventually, the app will “ring” them even if the app is not open?
No 911? That’s annoying but I guess not a deal breaker, since when away from home I have my regular cell phones. Unless I forget them.
I didn’t see any mention of bluetooth; probably ok since it would increase the cost and reduce the battery life, but wires are annoying and wireless accessories attractive. Perhaps a compatible plug in adapter could be eventually available?
