    they had a $50 activation fee for their prepaid service, probably what killed it.
    if only iridium had an unlimited plan.

    Interesting, though there'd still be latency on data even with low orbiting satellites.
    They don't mention how much more a call via these satellite would cost the subscriber compared to terrestial...

    I didn't know that Globalstar phones used GSM, I doubt that phone is still supported anyways.
    Another thing I didn't like about Globalstar prepaid was the $50 activation fee.
    I have several...

    The GlobalStar 1600 is trimode AMPS/CDMA/Satellite; You're thinking of the Thuraya phones, they're 2G GSM and sat, you can use them on T-Mobile on 2G mode but no satellite service in north and south...

    8 1/2 months since the last post, thought this sub was dead.
    Yea it's sad that globalstar ended their prepaaid service, the 1600 and 1700 are pretty cheap on ebay unlike iridium, inmarsat and...

    Nice but that's only 12-50Mbps for the whole plane, not much bandwith when shared.
    Plus they still make you pay even in buisness and 1st class, and the prices are a joke.

    That's just the 9575.
    You can still use the 9500 and other models so I wouldn't worry about support for older phones stopping.

    It was more likely due to the thick trees, I had a simular problem with Inmarsat while going through the forest of southern Oregon on a moving train.

    From what I know it's rather slow, @2400bps and meant for sending small emails and other light tasks.
    The latency is bad because of the delay from satellite to land and back.

    There's the 9575A, no idea what's different about it, probably simular to the 9505A.
    There's also a military version of the 9575, otherwise nothing new coming that I know of.

    Interesting, I guess I was wrong.
    Newer model phones like the Motorola 9575 will give you gps coordinates.

    Nice to see someone posted finally, it's been 6 months and I thought this board was all but abandoned.
    It seems redundant to have both, you can still call 911 from a satellite phone without having...

    It depends on the lenght of service and number of minutes, but yes it is that cheap.
    I'd go with Iridium, they have the best global coverage but I guess it'd depend on where your cruise is going.
