How do I make a satellite phone call?
Pivotel satellite phones generally include a truly local number that works just like your cell phone to make and receive calls and text messages.

It should be noted that unlike with cell phones, satellite phones need to be outside, with the antenna up and a clear view of the sky. Consult your phone user manual for details.
