Can't help with costs but do some research into the legality of sat-phones in the Philippines.

 

They are most definitely illegal in India for normal persons for "national security" reasons, with the terror situation in the Philippines it would not surprise me to find the same there.

So no medical emergency response plan?

 

When I was in Mindoro a few years back mobile comms was poor, one needed a very high external antenna that could cross the mountain tops attached to the mobile phone, and the missionaries had access to other wireless forms of communications - they were all over local radio stations? It would be nice to see them get on some modern form of communication because at the time they seemed as afraid and ignorant of modern life as the local tribes people they were trying to influence.

You can do calls to Iridium satellite phones from your landline and likely also from your mobile phone.

The cost depends on the country from which you call.

Which one?

 

From Germany cheapest I found is a call by call operator for 2.31 Euro/min.

The next two competitors want 4.65 Euro/min and 7.22 Euro/min.

No tariffs for smalltalk.

 

Good luck finding expertise about such topic here.
