Satellite Phone
« on: September 09, 2013, 10:51:01 pm »
I'm sometimes out of cell phone range for long distances ( think baja Penninsula Mexico). I've always wanted to carry a sat phone but they were just too expensive. Now Spot makes a phone that only costs $500.00. Not for common cell phone use, too expensive per call, but great if your in trouble.

Is this like a subscription service?  A monthly charge?  I sometimes find myself where there is no service as well but not often enough to pay for an ongoing subscription.  West Texas.  A couple of times Alaska.  And with my lousy coverage sometimes at home :008:

Yes it does cost money to make calls. But not necessarily a subscription. Check the website. That being said, it's not economical for occasional out of network cell phone supplementation. It's for genuine emergencies in places there are no cell phones and few people. I pay 300 dollars a year.
