In the Australian climate, the Iridium 9575 Extreme satellite phone is fantastic for :

... the list can go on and on ... 

We all know that mobile networks tend to focus in the main cities and along major highways, and spend very little time and money on regional networks, leaving vast gaps in mobile coverage -- PARTICULARLY here in Australia where there is a lot of land, and 98% of our population lives around the outside bit!  Many networks for mobiles have not even extended their coverage to fringe areas of metropolitan cities, let alone spend resources on building up the regional footprint!   A few kilometres out of most towns or major cities will mean that those signal pips will start disappearing like a magic trick, and that is exactly where you need your telephone to work!!! 

Anyone who travels into or through black spots will know how valuable that signal is... and know the value of a satellite phone.  It is still pretty cheap insurance when you think of what it can save you!
