Had not been using mine, but I heard all the problems. I called up and got them to put me on a different plan. No monthly fee and when you use the phone the minutes are very reasonable considering not having to pay the monthly fee. May be best used as a low speed trolling lure.

I trashed mine and cancelled service after having an engine fire 75 miles from port and trying at least 100 times to call for help. It dropped calls like crazy and when I finally reached their 911 operator, it kept dropping that call and I kept redialing and getting another operator and having to explain all over again.

If I wasn't hopeful i would eventually work, I would have shot the phone.

Replaced with Iridium and it works every time.

Burn the phone, don't rely on it for anything.

Save the phoe! Just to trade it in on a Iridium! They will give you a $400 discount on any phone if the Global Star will still power up! I bought a Iridium and it works everytime! Been a over the world and connects everytime! Worth every penny!
