Why did you abandon the other thread you started, by the way(?) You never told us which cellular provider you are using so we can assist.
years ago, i was locked onto a commercial, the company, iridium,
a solitary dude, somewhere uninhabited, inhospitable, ring ring ring goes...a phone?

fast forward to 2016, i go to its website, i almost fall off mine seat after seeing a comma before the decimal, i regain mine composure, wipe off the sweat;
we know of blackberry, apple, samsung, lg, and others, i'd like to pay my bill in new york, u.s.a, but would like all the creature comforts of a smartfone in borneo or the galapagos islands, greenland or africa, so mine question is, as far as smartfones and 2016 are concerned, keeping in mind what's offered from a company like iridium, "are we there yet?"
