Thuraya Satellite Telecommunications Company has recently introduced a useful add-on for its voice service: the Missed Call Notification (named ThurayaMCN).
This feature allows Thuraya users to receive a text message notifying about a missed call to their phone and to call back if necessary. Since satellite phones are often turned off and far more often are out of coverage (being indoors or in vehicle), this could be a hit among subscribers. The ThurayaMCN service is offered to all Thuraya subscribers for free.
One drawback could be that the subscriber who uses the MCN feature won’t be able to use voicemail or call forwarding at the same time.
