I have the 1700 so can only answer part of your question - yes, GS did put a full constellation back into service and they have good service now. I can use mine without issue.

It is kept at our cabin (no cell there) and tested every month or 2 to ensure it is working, there now seems to be usable signal 24 X 7.
