The goal is for terrestar sat phone links to be your roaming when your cell phone goes out of range of a tower.

They're already working with AT&T to bring out the hybrid service across the USA and Canada, offering a range of handsets which are around the size of a blackberry.

The TerreStar-1 satellite weighs 6 tons.

I do know I've seen ads for a satellite cell phone for people who are hikers and campers. For when they are waaaaay out in the middle of nowhere.
