Check out what I just found. Gotta do some further looking into the actual in-field reviews of the product, but it has captured my attention. http://www.satphonestore.com/iridium-go-turn-your-smart-phone-into-a-satellite-phone-used.html?utm_source=google_shopping&m=Abstract&gclid=CjwKCAiAz-7UBRBAEiwAVrz-9Y4SyuD0cQhoNhESgTDkv5gg6LzHDGNNb0nPsydlXUHeXGx9ubz-zRoCZBQQAvD_BwEMar 4, 2018 at 6:15 pm #3522280

4.5 x 3 x 1 inch – not bad, I wonder what it weighs
$50 per month + $0.25 per text message?, $650 cost, kind of expensive?Mar 4, 2018 at 6:30 pm #3522281
Iridium seems to be hiding info on the weight. Does not appear on their website specs.

Alan Dixon did a review of the Iridium Go in 2015. Might have changed a bit since then, but I’m sure a worthy read if you’re interested in the device.Mar 4, 2018 at 9:55 pm #3522324
How did I not see that article when it came out? NNTR
