This feat allows you to send messages to your friends, family, or contacts anywhere in the world be it in an ocean or desert. Receivers will get a simple SMS without any special equipment or software needed. However, if your receiver wants to respond, they'll need to use a free app that can be downloaded on iOS or Android.

Alongside that, the phone is offering a free 3-month trial of the Bullitt Satellite Messenger Essential plan which includes up to 30 messages via satellite a month. Once the trial is up you'll need to subscribe to several plans in which the cheapest is around EUR 5 per month or equivalent to PHP 290. There's also a flexible and heavy usage plan whichever suit your preference.

Of course, the device supports emergencies too, subscribers can have 1 year of 24/7 emergency access to response centers run by FocusPoint International for free.
