I received a SPOT message on my cell phone voice message last night but not any where else, normally I get the same message in 3 in boxes, iPhone voice message inbox, iPhone email inbox, and my computer inbox. I have received several that way already but last night I got one on my iPhone voice message only. The sad thing is I can't read the coordinates on my cell phone and in trying to enlarge the message I deleted it, lol. Wasn't concerned as I hadn't yet checked my computer so figured I'd have it there but alas no message.
Does this have anything to do with the signal strength from the SPOT or more about my receiving end? Thankfully it was an "I'm alright" message but I do like to see the location the message was sent from. Is it possible that I have changed my computer settings...don't think so but this does seem odd.
Still trying to figure the whole SPOT connection, there have been times when a message hasn't gone through so we're not sure of every nuance of how this thing works! I am finding it reassuring in spite of the hiccups though.
