I find these satellite phones WAY too expensive. I don't see a practical use for them (my current phone works just fine without any issues). It's just not worth getting them. There's terrestrial networks everywhere (at least where I'm from). Also, imagine if the iPhone XS Max 512GB was a satellite phone... it would be even more expensive than the highest configuration MacBook Pro!
it is a great machine, i used it with the Thuraya SIM, later i removed that SIM and used it with GSM SIM. This is a good product though quite expensive.
I happen to know someone who used this phone as a daily driver from 2007 to 2008. The experience, was in one word: interesting.
