    Now this is cool. Expensive..... but cool. $800 for the phone plus a coverage plan. Satellite calls go for $0.65 per minute on top of a required $24.99/month satellite plan. Data costs are a obscene $5 a megabyte and text messages are not bad at $0.40 though AT&T also tacks on a required 3G plan on top of the satellite plan.
