Calling can be done from the ground to the moon
According to Nishant Batra, if you run a 4G network on the moon, then this device will work there. And then, if someone is carrying this device, they can call home, as long as it’s legally allowed. I’m not sure it would be legally allowed for that long. These are very secure for the (network) system and are not for public use.
