AT&T Satellite Phone Service

Friday, November 26th, 2010

AT&T and TerreStar have joined forces to offer a smart cell phone that can access satellite service if it can’t find any cell towers to access. This new AT&T Wireless satellite phone service is available using the new Genus smartphone from TerreStar. The TerreStar Genus will cost over one thousand dollars, and customers will have to pay for an AT&T voice plan, as well as an AT&T data plan. But, that’s not all, customers who want access to satellite service will also have to pay an additional $25 per month for satellite roaming access, plus the cost of any calls they actually make.
