They carry two providers of satellite phone
service: Globalstar and Iridium.
Globalstar is appropriate for trips within
the lower 48 states and select parts of the
Caribbean. Outside of this area, reception
becomes unreliable and if you are able to
place a call at all, you will be charged
roaming fees ($3.49 per min) in addition
to your regular per minute charges.
Iridium will work anywhere on the planet.
The only exceptions are Cuba and North
Korea, and this is NOT due to poor
reception.
