    I did not purchase through Amazon, I was an Indiegogo contributor. It has used twice so far to send and receive messages when I was out of cell service. The weather report function is very useful, also. All around it works great so far. There was an issue with getting it activated, and, I’m not kidding, within 2 minutes of sending an email for customer service, it was answered and the issue was resolved within 20 minutes. If that’s not great customer service, then I don’t know what is. I have not used the trip tracking function yet, (this is how I have convinced my wife to let me start going backpacking by myself again), and I will update my review directly after its first use. What I like the most is the credit plan is not misleading or just plain sinister like for example, the Spot communicator, (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, look it up. And don’t EVER buy one, you’re welcome). If you’ve been looking for a simple, no frills sat communicator so your loved ones don’t worry about you, then this is it.

    I love the flexible plan you can get for this, how you can cancel anytime or keep it. It is a good size and very easy to use. It is nice that it can charge your phone in an emergency if you’re phone is dead. It seems to be built very rugged. I have had th he Spot satellite communicator and the bivy stick is better all around.

    I bought the Bivystick directly from Bivy and not Amazon to save a few bucks. We spend a couple of months a year off grid and need a convenient method to communicate with the world. The other 10 months we do not need it. At first glance I liked the Bivy form factor, battery size, and no need for a subscription plan. I gave it 3 stars because it does send and receive text messages via satellite from the App on my iPhone. I would wait until they improve several things before purchasing this. There are many other choices on the market.I tested the Bivystick for about 6 weeks and I’m not happy with several things. First, if you cancel your base plan of 17.99 a month you lose your assinged phone number and are assigned a new one when you want to start up again. So everyone needs to forget the number you were texting them from and deal with a new one every time you do this. Second, getting and sending message from the app via satellite can be very very slow. From the same exact location and position on a table my times varied from a few minutes to over an hour with not a a good status of what is happening other than an indication it is linked one or more satellites. Third, The service doesn’t not work like other satellite services that support text messages, messages sizes are limited which is OK but the number they give cannot receive many types of text messages. After several question to Bivy tech support there is no support of an SMS gateway that allows you to get text messages from various alerts like stock, banks, alarm systems like Nest etc… This is very common for all cell phone and satellite phones etc. We tried having all our alerts sent to google number then forwarded to the Bivy number but Bivy doesn’t support that because they don’t support an SMS gateway. So when you are out in the wilderness forget about alerts. Maybe someone knows a method for IOS and will let Bivy know because they were clueless. Fourth, The app has no way to delete text messages that are sent or received. They simple stay on the list in event order. No response from Bivy support about this. This is pretty basic stuff. Fifth, the ON/OFF button and charger port is located under a hard to open cover on the bottom of the stick, it is not convenient and I had to pry it open most of the time. Last , I requested to return for refund we’ll see how that goes.
