Traveling and Page Plus.... So far I have had no issues with roaming and I have 1 home sid in my system. I have used my handset in Az (home) Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Parts of texas with no issues at all. it would have the little man roaming symbol but not blinking.
I too have seen random garbled texts.. Very irritating. iPhones tend to do it. Think its some kinds of MMS as its seems binary.
Im still working on bluetooth adapters for these handsets but its been setback. theres a 150 dollar item that will give you wifi from the phone, you will still need a data cable or a car kit. Other than that, Serial port and cable is needed (or usb adapter and cable) and pc.
Hope that catchs up some of the questions above I haven't answered. I have not been on this thread in a while been busy with my own site
See about me for more info on that site. Its globalstar phone related.
