What About Airtime?
The Globalstar GSP-16700 phone rental does not require require a minimum airtime purchase. You are free to buy airtime blocks in advance at a cheaper rate, or, you can buy no airtime in advance and we will bill you for what you use after you return at the standard rate of $1.49/ minute. Many times a satellite phone is taken along on a trip as a precaution, and no airtime is really needed. However, if you know you will be checking in every day, it makes sense to buy some airtime in advance.
Globalstar phone are not capable of sending text messages. Incoming texts are possible. There is no charge for incoming texts.
