A satellite phone will replace your regular cell phone if you are going on trips to remote places such as out at sea, on a desert, mountain climbing or in forests etc. A regular cell phone will not work in these places, but a satellite phone will. So there’s no reason to lose contact with friends, family and loved ones, even when you’re out in these remote places.
As well as the pleasure for keeping touch, having a satellite phone handy is peice of mind for emergencies. If anything should happen while on your trip, a satellite phone quite literally be your saviour. Wherever you are, as long as you have a clear line of sight to the sky, you’ll get the coverage to use your satellite phone.
