Any suggestions or thoughts on a satellite phone for offshore fishing on Long Island. Global star vs. Iridium

Thanks

Ive used the Globalstar without any problems, but a lot of guys seem to have issues with them. Most will recommend the Iridium...

Spend the extra $$$$ and get the Iridium. Trust me I own a Globalstar and I will be switching to Iridium at the end of the contract. Satellite linkup is terrible, dropped calls frequent and customer service is worse. Don't believe the line they will give you about the new satellite array coming on-line soon. It is pure BS.
