The Iridium 9505A handheld satellite phones provides global voice, 2400 bps data, and 160-character short messaging. This model is no longer the state-of-the-art Iridium handheld satellite phone but is sometimes needed by users requiring RS-232 serial communications.
Outfitter can special order new Iridium 9505A equipment and may have used Iridium 9505A satellite phones available. Please call for more information.

Home Zone Region Definitions*
The Monthly Plans and Global Prepaid Plans presented above have global coverage except for a short list of countries that have opted-out of Iridium coverage. The Regional Prepaid Plans presented above provide service in a geographically-restricted Home Zone Region. There is a small percentage of instances where the geographic restriction will extend or retract from the Home Zone Region described here because the Iridium system interprets the call as originating from outside the designated Home Zone Region, and service availability is not guaranteed in these instances.
