We were immediately contacted by InReach folks, who passed us off to the National Park Service. There were a number of back-and-forth messages which we paid for at $0.50 each. I never heard of any bills for service. The county sheriffs also came on the scene and talked to us. I have no idea if CA charges for rescue, but I kinda doubt it in the national parks.

Android 15 to get satellite messaging "Android's satellite messaging support has been in the works for about a year now, and it sounds like Android 15 is going to launch the feature for apps. The new OS is including notifications and better status bar indicators for when you're connected to space. A "NonTerrestrialNetwork" API will let apps know when they're limited to barely there satellite connectivity. Google says Android 15 will let third-party SMS and MMS applications tap into the satellite connectivity APIs, but enhanced messaging with RCS support will be limited to "preloaded" applications only."
