Below we're sharing a few things to keep in mind, so keep reading to learn more, then shop our online store today!

Know What You Need 

The first thing to think about is what you'll be using your satellite phone for. If you need something that's rugged and can withstand extreme conditions, the Iridium Extreme® is a smart choice. Lower cost alternatives like the Iridium 9555 are reliable but do not have Iridium Extreme features like its diamond tread easy-to-grip design, built-in S.O.S. personal emergency button, or GPS tracking features.

Consider Your Budget 

Satellite phones can be a large investment, so it's important to consider your budget when making a purchase. A new Iridium Extreme® is one of the more expensive options on the market, but Outfitter Satellite Phones also offers significant discounts when you choose a USED Iridium Extreme with a 12-month warranty.  Another alternative is to rent an Iridium satellite phone.

Think About Ease of Use 

If you're not familiar with satellite phones, the Iridium Extreme® can be a bit complicated to use because of its extended feature set. If you're looking for something that's simpler to operate, we recommend the Iridium 9555 satellite phone.  It is a good choice for basic call and text communication with the same global coverage as the Iridium Extreme.

Keep These Things in Mind When Choosing a Satellite Phone 

When it comes to finding the right satellite phone, there's no one-size-fits-all solution. However, by considering your needs and budget, you can narrow down your options to find the best fit. And if you're ever unsure, the team at Outfitter Satellite is always happy to help!
