If you are headed to India, best to not take the Thuraya Satphone or you may be arrested as a terrorist. Read the report here.

With the amount of indians migrating to Australia in the last decade, it should indicate to us all what a crap country it is. Stay home and spend your money here. Its good for us all! Michael

Seems like a person could place the same calls on an Iridium, globalstar, or Inmarsat phone as they could on a Thuraya. So why wouldn't the terrorists, whatever, etc. just switch brands now that Thuraya is banned?

If their funding is drying up, that wouldn't be a bad thing. :p

My mistake, I just checked Globalstar's coverage map and see they doesn't offer service in that part of the world. And yes, Iridium is pricey (but the best provider by far).
