Any Globalstar users out there?

For our 2nd Mystic-USVI cruise in 2004-05, we added a Globalstar phone. It was used for downloading GRIB weather files (fast) and for rare conversations with the shore crew.

Now I hear the Globalstar satellite constellation is failing, and Globalstar has lowered it's pricing to retain customers. Does anyone know if the recent launch of 4 spares is helping?

Since I already own the phone, I would like to use it if the system is viable. Sure would like some feedback from other Globalstar users before I commit to a contract.
