Dawg...I thinkthat info on the continental USA is badly out of date. Globalstar for an example, has an entire set of rate plans based on making calls from USA Home Territory which is defined as 48 states, Alaska and PORTIONS of the Caribe. They wouldn't have this if using your phone in the states was illegal.
On the "air card" issue...it really varies by location which company has the be coastal coverage since PHONE CALL coverage and DIGITAL NETWORK coverage can be widely different. One company may provide significantly better coverage in specific coastal areas than others. Based on reports I've read...it seems like for EAST COAST best coverage right now, Verizon has the most air card coverage.
