Do you need a phone?

A good site for good advice : http://www.caminodesantiago.me/board/el-camino-frances/topic12380.html#p81985

An example : Re: To Phone or not to Phone

I’m not a phone addict, but overall I’d suggest it’s comforting to have one. As you say, it’s good for safety and also for family to contact you in case of emergency at home. In practice I just texted people a few times when we got separated but wanted to catch up in the evening.I suggest taking an old or cheap phone so you’re not too worried about it being lost, stolen, or handwashed to extinction (as happened in my case).Buen Camino!

To the extent I need to communicate with home, I can do it from villages along the way at internet cafes.I suppose my biggest concern is that I may need it to call ahead for reservations each day. Thoughts?

I think the phone is very useful to ensure that albergues are open in April or to book a room in a hotel or guest house etc..
It is true that the weight of the phone and the charger is important ; it’s a total weight around 120 gr.
