You know, the more I look at this the more I'm thinking a sat phone may be the way to go.

His african jaunts are subsaharan - gsm is iffy in places and if he ends up carrying a thrid phone, it should be one that will *always* work.

Iridium has $0.99/min rates depending on the plan . Apparently, you get royally hosed calling *to* the sat phone - but it would be cheaper calling for outgoing calls and we could reach him if it were critical.
