QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Can you send a message to someone on your blacklist?

Yes; but you won’t get their reply....

Do undeliverable messages, when device is off for 72 hours, count toward your messages?

No, it has to go over the satellites to count and this is sent to your email....

How do I know if my message was sent?

Your sent messages will be displayed in the Messages screen. The Check-In Message will not display the texts sent, but only the GPS coordinates and date/time it was sent. You also can view your sent messages in your SPOT MyAccount. Before heading off the grid, we strongly recommend that you send a test message to ensure your device was activated properly. There are also 3 different icons indicate the status of a message: The first is a chat bubble with a check mark indicating message sent. The second is a chat bubble with a question mark indicating message sent, but the delivery could not be confirmed. The third is a chat bubble with a X indicating message was not sent. This is usually due to poor GPS signal conditions. ...

How does international SMS messaging work?

At this time, there are no additional fees for SMS texting. Globalstar reserves the right to change this policy....

If sending 3 separate messages, how long will it take for the SPOT X to send all messages?

The messages are sequential and as soon as Message 1 is acknowledged, Message 2 will start. If Message 1 is not acknowledged or the SPOT X does not receive the acknowledgement, it will continue sending Message 1 up to five times for redundancy to improve the probability of a successful delivery....
