So during a conversation I said how cool it would be if you could have sat reception in the new iphone. I was then told they were going to go down that road and the major service providers fought them on it so they decided to keep the sat ability in it but will send out the signal for emergency and drop pin you regardless of service. nothing else, no messaging, no calling for more beer or tacos. Just that you have an sos to those in your list and it wild send a drop pin. I have yet to try this out (and should have during the 500) but I don’t see a reason for them to lie about it.Without a cell signal? How?
I work with Apple execs, the new phones have it. They we’re looking to offer sat phone services and were fought by the big 3. The sos will work though
