How do I obtain a GPS fix on an iSatPhone?
Before a phone call can be made, the phone needs a GPS fix so it can be located by the satellite. This happens automatically, but if a new GPS fix is needed the GPS fix icon will be displayed on the screen. The phone should be kept in the open with a clear view of the sky until the icon on the screen disappears. Once this is done the phone is now ready to register with the network.
