also, if you are not expecting any calls, it is better to put your phone in airplane mode, that can drastically cut power requirements of the phone and the airplane mode can easily be tuned off by a single tap.

when it come to power saving smartphone is better than cellphone
remember don't touch you device for 3 days cell stand will take 50% on 2G i don't know about 3G and battery remover is better in that case.

Just use feature phones, they last a lot longer than smartphones while having smaller batteries~

I agree, I live on the FL Gulf Coast and not really worried about this one.
BTW, Sprint Nextel is, by far, the best prepared wireless carrier when it comes to emergencies. They also have backup generators on their cell sites and like VZW and probably AT&T and TMO, have COW's (Cell On Wheels) in case the towers are completely inoperable. I do remember that after Katrina, Sprint and Nextel were the only services that worked for a week or so. They are also the only carrier with an Emergency Response Team that is immediately deployed to the emergency site and provides cell equipment to Gov't Agencies, Emergency Responders and law enforcement.
