We rent Satellite Phones to active war zones, including Iraq and Afghanistan. For these areas we offer voice service from Iridium, giving you total coverage. The handset we offer is the Motorola 9505A, the latest satellite phone available for use on the Iridium Satellite Network.
This satellite phone on the Iridium network is extremely convenient for several reasons:
1 - Mag Mount Antenna. The 9505A comes with this optional external antenna. This has a 1.5 meter cable leading to a small magnetic antenna which will hold on top of a vehicle, giving you access inside your vehicle. It is important to note that without this antenna you are unlikely to get service as you need clear line of sight to the sky to use a satellite phone. According to our customers who have used this phone in Iraq, this antenna is helpful because if you must stop your vehicle to get out and use the phone, you face extreme heat, plus the danger of snipers taking a shot at you.
2 - Prepaid minutes. With the 9505A we are able send you a phone with a prepaid sim card. This way should the satellite phone get lost or stolen, the liability on the phone is limited to the amount of minutes originally purchased, and no more. Insurgents and terrorists target sat phones due to their annonymity. Other satellite phone companies may provide you with Post Paid sim cards, which means that you have an unlimited liability, not here.
3 - Global coverage with no roaming. The Iridium satellite network gives you total global coverage, with the only exception being North Korea. All your calls will be charged at one rate, no matter where you call.
We also have the ability to get phones sent direct to you, anywhere on earth, often within 24 hours.
