I'm so glad that my boyfriend really cared about me. As a birthday gift, he registered my cell phone to a safety and protection service which can be used in any emergency. By just pressing the panic button, it summons immediate help from him, family, friends and if needed to the nearest 911 in our area. I told him once that if he will hurt me, I will trigger the button to ask some help. He just laughed. To know more about the service, check this out http://bit.ly/1fJjrW7
