From what I understand, satellite phones are meant for use outside of the CONUS borders. Use within CONUS is limited to emergency and military personnel, unless you have an FCC waiver. I think one reason for it is the difficulty of tracking satellite phone users... unlike a cell phone—who can be localized to within a few square miles, a satellite phone user can be almost anywhere within the footprint of the satellite.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
