    Guys, if your phone is set to allow switching networks automatically, you better keep an eye on it so that it doesn't switch by accident to the moon carrier on full moon nights. I hear the roaming costs are quite high.

    Boy, the first guy to use that has to have a horrible expensive mobile plan :D
     

  5. That is super cool. I can certainly see cellular comms being useful for moon ops, and could probably be linked to earthside comms easily enough (as easily as anything is done in space, that is). I am really excited by all this interest in returning to the moon.

    Would be a bit of a pain having to take your gloves off every time you need to use your phone IMO.

    I think vodafone fails in every segment of network,here in hungary atleast after a year i quit using their network cause there is like nowhere reception. I heard rumors when they come to hungary they rent Antennas from other 2 providers,and when they get own they fail so hard... Like you got reception than same position your smartphone lose internet like nothing... They advertise full coverage, i see only low coverage. So kinda they should burry themselfs.
