Just bought and got delivered a brand new iSatPhone Pro 2. I configured the assistance button to Sweden
number, and added a max of 10 mobile numbers that recieve a SMS as well.
Subsequently I read a notice (who reads paperwork these days) in the parcel, stating "CRITICAL IMPORTANT INFORMATION...Your new Inmarsat iSatPhone 2 has a dedicated button which can be configured to obtain the Emergency
Response Coordination Service
provided by GEOS Worldwide Limited (GEOS)...you need to register with GEOS...register online...at:
Tried but that web page is down, so googled GEOS Alliance + Inmarsat and found:
I am not postpaid but I use prepaid SIM card from Blue Cosmo so I would have to pay to use their service
This is why I would like to know if it works anyway with the Swedish JRCC number I added? I.e. will the phone
do anything, dial + sms, if not registered with GEOS? If so, can't I skip GEOS and let it call JRCC in Sweden
I talked to JRCC Sweden and they say they will coordinate a rescue
. And this not the primary means of alerting or only way, also got Garmin
InReach Explorer SE+, Epirb
etc (I know, VHF
is short range), so if JRCC Sweden is slower than GEOS, I guess I could live with that.
