Globalstar satphone?

I have a 10 year old Globalstar GSP 1600 handset that I haven't used for half a dozen years, and am wondering if anybody here has had any recent, first-hand experience using the Globalstar satphone service in the Turks & Caicos/lower Bahamas? The battery seems to be holding a charge, and it looks like I can get a limited service plan for not much dough...but service got so bad a few years back that I almost threw the thing in a dumpster...I don't want to mess with it/bang my head against the wall if there's not a pretty good chance it'll work reasonably well in a pinch. (Have an SSB onboard already). Thanks!
