Because of the enormous cost to start a security company of satellite phones, many of us are thankful that we don't have this expense to contend with for communicating. The initial cost as well as the cost to use the phone is huge. Emergencies on the other hand are the exception to most any normal rules. Anyone who remembers the Katrina days, could easily understand how the cost would be a non issue. Individuals with a sat phone during Katrina, communicated when cell and home phones were dead weight and useless until after the calm of the devastation. There are other examples of how these phones saved the day as well.

Knowing what your location terms will be will be helpful in determining how much air time you might need for making calls and etc.. The variety of phones and plans are as diverse as the companies. If you see a need for text and data transferring capabilities, check out what is available and the price of these services.

Sat phones are generally used out doors where a clear line of sight toward the satellites can be gotten quite easily. Having windows that allow direct line of sights will also work quite well also. A clear sight means good or better reception. Another option surrounding the sat phone is the renting one instead of buying one to meet your needs. Having something this handy in remote places will give you extra peace of mind while you journey.
