The Top 10 Reasons to Own Iridium Satellite Phones

10)  Global coverage:  There simply is no other satellite phone that offers coverage over every square foot of our big blue planet.  Iridium works everywhere!

9) Network reliability: At any time there always one, usually two, and frequently three satellites overhead.  That means that no matter where you are, odds are you will pick up the network and get calling pronto.

8) Many options:  Iridium has a couple of handheld phones to choose form as well as Vale-Added partners that build fixed phones, docking stations, specialty products – all kinds of solutions for whatever you need.

7) A full kit: When you buy an Iridium phone, it comes with a wall charger with international plugs, a car charger, phone case, mag-mount antenna, antenna adapter, hands free and a User Guide.  It is the most complete handheld phone kit available

6) Tough guy, eh?  The Iridium 9575 phone is the first mil-spec phone built to take the harshest abuse.  It is designed to withstand shock, water and dust.  My teenagers cannot break it.

5) Built-in GPS: Iridium is the only provider that offers GPS tracking capability and an SOS panic button.  Think about the lives put at risk looking for lost hikers (for example), which could easily be found at the press of a button.

4) Value-Added Service Providers: In most cases when you buy an Iridium phone, you’ll receive it in a box and you have to set it up; kind of a pain, but not too bad if you are setting up just one phone.  A nightmare if you are setting up 20, 50, 80 phones.  Providers like GlobaFone of Portsmouth, NH will set up and assemble your phone so you can use it right out of the shipping box.

3) Resources to learn how to use the phone: There are at least a dozen videos that demonstrate how to use your Iridium phone to make and receive calls and voicemail.

2) Pooling airtime: Iridium is the only network under which your Service Provider can create a custom pooled airtime plan.  Many do not, but it is important for you to know it is possible and if your provider doesn’t pool airtime that is a choice they make that costs you more money.

1) Piece of mind: You have an Iridium satellite phone.  You have the most reliable satellite phone with the broadest coverage in the world.

Iridium 9505A end of life

Iridium  announced earlier this month that the 9505A handset has reached its end of life and will no longer be built.  This news has prompted people to either buy up all the handsets they can or change their purchase plans and move up to the new 9555 model.  There are couple of interesting points about the 9505A handset:
 
Iridium is still building the US-made for US Government use.  There is currently no US-built 9555
This means accessories such as spare batteries, spare chargers, phone cases, etc will still be available.

For people going into a panic; relax.  There is nothing ‘wrong’ with the 9505A handset; it is a very reliable, rugged phone that provides excellent service around the world (literally EVERYWHERE around the world).  You can buy the 9505A now and still have confidence that Iridium is supporting all the handsets out there – they all come with the 1 year warranty.

Just keep in mind that the end of life is a natural progression of the product cycle.  The 9555 is a very nice phone, 30% smaller, lighter, with more battery power and a color screen.
