Iridium has reactivated their Globalstar buy-back program!  This program was very popular when it was first implemented last year, enabling hundreds of organizations to save tens of thousands of dollars while acquiring Iridium phones at a terrific price.  Satellite phones are much-needed for emergency response and business continuity situations.  Response to Hurricane Ike is just one example of where satellite phones were used to serve the public in response and rescue.

 GlobaFone clients have saved over $44,000 with the rebate program!

Here’s how the rebate program works:

Buy a brand new Iridium 9505A phone from GlobaFone
Sign up for the North American Rate plan –
Turn in any qualifying Globalstar phone – see models below
Receive a rebate of up to $350 for each phone you buy

In the current budgetary climate, this rebate plan gives you a great way to purchase Iridium phones and utilize the reliability of their satellite network for your critical communications.   When lives are potentially on the line, your phones have to work.
