Motorola has unveiled a satellite device at MWC 2023 that will let you call and text from your smartphone, even when there’s no signal. The Defy Satellite Link can be used with any Android or Apple and for just $99 it offers a pretty serious upgrade. 

We’ve all found ourselves in a sticky situation with absolutely no signal. It always seems to happen at the worst moments, when you’ve broken down or gotten incredibly lost and cannot contact help. In an age where we rely so much on our phones for communication, it's a little surprising more phones don’t have satellite functionality but at least the Defy Satellite Link is a great alternative.
