Thuraya Satellite Phones:

  • Thuraya XT-PRO satellite phoneThuraya XT-PRO Handheld Satellite Phone:This is the most feature rich Thuraya satellite phone currently available. It includes built-in GPS, BeiDou and Glonass capability to assure the highest flexibility in all regions. A large display composed of hardened Gorilla® glass is designed for the harshest environments. The Thuraya XT-PRO can also be used in conjunction with an optional docking station (see next item).
  • Docking Stations for the Thuraya XT-PRO: In order to effectively use the Thuraya XT-PRO inside a building or vehicle, we recommend the use of a docking station. For land vehicle applications, we recommend the Thuraya SAT-VDA Vehicle Docking Adapter. This system includes a Thuraya satellite antenna and a GPS antenna, a privacy handset, and a speaker phone/hands-free microphone. For in-building applications of the Thuraya XT-PRO satellite phone the Thuraya FDU-XT docking station provides an external antenna set and a 25-meter antenna cable. This system is wall or desk-mountable. It has a USB port for data and an RJ-11 phone port.
  • Thuraya XT-LITE Handheld Satellite Phone: This is the economy version of the Thuraya XT-PRO. The XT-LITE provides voice and SMS messaging and up to 6 hours of talk time or 80 hours of standby time. The XT-LITE does not have 9.6 kbps data or GmPRS capabilities and there are no docking stations available for it. It uses the same AC wall charger and DC car charger as the XT-PRO.
  • Thuraya SatSleeve+ for your iPhone or Android: Thuraya SatSleeve+ is the smartest, fastest and simplest way to transform your iPhone or Android smart phone into a satellite phone. The compact adapter allows you to use your smart phone to make calls and send SMS beyond the coverage of traditional cellular terrestrial networks using the Thuraya network. Simply dock your smart phone into the handheld Thuraya SatSleeve+. Then, use the Thuraya SatSleeve Hotspot App to make calls and send texts. You can also send emails or tweets throughout the vast Thuraya satellite network coverage area. The SatSleeve+ has its own Thuraya SIM card slot. Your smart phone will still be able to make and receive ordinary cellular calls over its own cellular network and satellite-mode calls will be pre-empted if a cellular-call comes in.

Thuraya Coverage Map

Thuraya Satellite Coverage MapThe dark blue area in the Thuraya Coverage Map above represents the primary coverage region of Thuraya. A list of covered countries is also shown below. Weaker "fringe" coverage may exist in the light blue areas. Even in the primary coverage regions, coverage can be blocked by nearby terrain features such as mountains or trees. You must have a direct line of sight between yourself and the Thuraya satellite to be able to make calls. Outfitter Satellite recommends that Thuraya customers verify that they know how to make calls before leaving for a remote location. If you have a prepaid SIM card, make sure you know how to check your balance and reload your SIM card.

If you have a GSM-cellular capable Thuraya phone such as the HNS-7201, SG-2520, or Thuraya XT DUAL, you will have additional GSM cellular coverage in many countries. Different regional operators charge different rates and some features of the Thuraya phone may not be supported by all GSM operators. As a rule, GSM operators in third world countries charge more for calls than the cost of Thuraya satellite-mode calls.
