Staying in Touch - Even Offshore

"Globalstar satellite telephone service is delivered through special multi-mode phones, which work like traditional cellular phones when you are in an area with cellular coverage. Globalstar phones look and act like mobile or fixed phones with which you're familiar. Globalstar's mobile satellite phones, slightly larger than traditional cellular phones, are built by three wireless manufacturers, Ericsson, QUALCOMM and Telit. The difference is that they can operate virtually anywhere, carrying your call over a secure Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) satellite signal. "
