Need a reliable satellite phone that will work anywhere in the world? There is only one phone that meets that requirement – Iridium. With the constellation of polar orbiting satellites, their coverage is truly global, and with more than ten years of reliable operation, they have proven their system. With Inmarsat and Globalstar operating newer constellations, there is some concern that the Iridium system may experience problems as they move forward with their satellite replacement program slated for 2015-2017. While there is a chance that users may encounter occasional delays in connecting a call, or experience an occasional dropped call, most experts feel these problems will be minimal and that the Iridium NEXT system will arrive before the problems become significant, and that the Iridium NEXT system will carry Iridium reliability for many years to come.

The most popular terminal in the Iridium family is the Iridium 9555. Priced at $1095, this handheld is compact yet easy to use. Although airtime runs a little more than $1.00 per minute, rates compare favorable to cellular roaming charges. The 9555 can also send a text message to a cell phone or to an e-mail address for $0.50, and friends and family can send a FREE text to the 9555 from www.satellitephonesolutions.com . SPS also utilizes the Iridium 9555 in its Rental Program, and it is a great solutions for customers traveling overseas for a week or two.

The latest addition to the Iridium family is the 9575 Extreme. The Extreme handset looks and feels more like a walkie-talkie, yet the rugged terminal is easy to use. In addition to the voice and text features this terminal shares with the 9555, the Iridium Extreme has a built in GPS that allows users to pull up and send their position via text or e-mail. The terminal can also be set up for tracking and SMS service, and, with the push of the RED distress button, personnel at the GOES monitoring center (yes the same people who provide SPOT monitoring) will dispatch emergency personnel to the users position. This distress response program is provided free-of-charge by Iridium.

Satellite Phone Solutions also maintains a small inventory of refurbished Iridium 9505A. These terminals are older and a little larger than the Iridium 9555, but they work very well. Priced at $750 with a one year warranty, the Iridium 9505A is a good value for customers who want the global service of Iridium, but are looking to spend just a little less.
