Asian satphone services [Telecom]

While we are talking about satellite phone services, is there any currently available service working in the Thailand/Yunnan/Bangladesh area? I know they aren't allowed for use in Burma but I am curious if that is changing with the relief efforts there as well.

Aside from Iridium and GlobalStar (whatever happened to GlobalStar?) is there anything there? I know that's way out of range for the Thuraya footprint. Did APMT and ACeS ever come to anything? It has been a decade since I even thought about this stuff.

According to this map from their web site, the Thuraya 3 satellite should provide excellent coverage all over southeast Asia, and Thuraya

2 some coverage as far east as Thailand.
