I activated my Spot today and tried it out while walking around the neighborhood, and it didn't work. I turned it on, then pressed the OK/Check button. The lights began beeping in unision, and eventually a 5 sec or so hold came up and then continued beeping. This happened again about 5 to 10 minutes later, after about 20 minutes I went inside and turned the device off. I never recieved any message according to my account or any of the email addresses I had pre-programmed. Whats the deal??? Was it because I was walking around while attempting? Or was it because I did not let the 5 sec hold occur the third time before turning it off i.e. canceling the message? If this is the case this kind of sucks considering I rarely have a half an hour to kill in the open sky before I get on my bike and go. Plus you look like an idiot if you are just standing there for a half an hour staring at a hunter orange box with blinkie lights.
