Default KVH FB150 activation

I've got a boat with a KVH FB150 installed. It's my understanding it is IMARSAT compatible. I don't have experience with Sat Phones. Does anyone know how the phone is activated? Can I just buy a 100 minute card or is there a required subscription? Thanks.

I used to have an FB150 on my 45 Cabo. Great unit, true military grade gear, but rather expensive. PM me with questions.

Thanks. I'll take you up on the offer. I can't figure out what it is or is not supposed to do. For example, I can hear the speaker go on and off when I power it up but I'm not getting any screen indicators. I'll find a manual and send questions.
