factory phone

I was wondering if anyone knows if I can activate the factory mobile phone in my 93 300te. I would like for it to be operational in the event of an emergency. Are there any service plans available for these older phones?

I doubt it since it is most likely an analog phone and all new phones are digital. I know the on star in my 2001 Oldsmobile was useless for that same reason.
