How about a product review? if you are considering a globalstar or Spot satellite phone (they are the same) for use in AK, forget it, buy the Iridium. I have a full season now of trying to use the globalstar phone. Although their coverage map shows full coverage for AK that is false. You will wait up to thirty minutes for coverage, and then you can expect at least two to three dropped calls, which for my business is not viable, it would be even less so if there was an emergency.
On top of that they advertise monthly plans, but that is a lie, if you read the fine print (I, much to my chagrine, didn't) it is an annual plan, you cannot cancel it for the months that you will not use it without a $250 penalty. The webpage is specifically designed to make you think they are indeed month by month plans. Unfortunately, it wasn't just me but two friends that fell for the same bait and switch. I will pay the $250 chalk it up as an idiot tax, and then buy an Iridium (of which I have not heard any bad things). Globalstar's customer service sucks
