"I've used the SatPhone in Ethiopia, Turkey and parts of the UK with no cellphonee reception so far and the quality of the reception has been without exception excellent. In fact, it will be my preferred choice of phone overseas from now on as the cost of the calls is about half that of using my cellphone! I will be going to Egypt shortly and fully intend using it there. The battery life of the SatPhone is superb, again, much better than my cellphone and it's very easy to use. Also, the service I have received from SatPhone City has been without fault and I have already recommended you to a couple of my friends."
