Cost, Reviews, Comparison & 2017 Buying Guide  November 20, 2017 – 06:58 am

photo1.jpgComparing satellite phones is vital to matching the mission critical needs of your application with the function and capabilities of the respective satellite communications equipment. Ultimately a satellite phone is only as good as the network behind it and each network, Iridium, Inmarsat and Globalstar have various strengths and benefits. The comparison chart is designed to help prospective customers select which satellite phone is best suited for the job at hand in terms of QoS (Quality of Service), potential limitations and advantages one handset may have over another. In terms of networks, Iridium is currently the only satellite constellation to offer its customers seamless global coverage between and including, both poles. Inmarsat isatphone solutions, while somewhat more economical, may be deficient in terms of polar coverage and directional antenna. Globalstar is a good economical choice for users in the Continental USA, Canada or Caribbean, but not recommended for travelers outside these areas.

Satellite Phone FAQ's

  • What are some common reasons why people buy satellite phones?
  • Most people who need a satellite phone work, live or travel to areas without traditional landline or cellular coverage. Since satellite phones do not rely on wires or cellular towers they're able to work in more remote locations.
  • How quickly can I get a satellite phone if I order it today?
  • We always have the major mobile satellite phone brands in stock and ready for shipment. Most orders placed prior to 2pm Pacific time will ship same day from Seattle, WA
  • Should I rent or buy a satellite phone?
  • If you have a need for a satellite phone more than six weeks per year then purchasing a satellite phone would be your best option. If you only travel to remote areas one month or less per year then a rental will be your most economical choice.
  • Do you offer refurbished satellite phones?
  • Which satellite phone has the best coverage?
  • Iridium, Inmarsat & Globalstar all have different coverage and some may work better in different areas. Iridium has the widest coverage and will work anywhere on earth with a clear view of the sky.
  • Which satellite phones get internet?
  • Most of the satellite phones can connect to the internet, but the data rates are very slow. Globalstar is the fastest data rates at 9.6kbps where Iridium & Inmarsat IsatPhone are 2.4kbps. These satellite internet speeds are so slow that they usually require special software or applications to work efficiently.
  • Are there any long distance or roaming charges?
  • Iridium has the same voice calling rate from anywhere on earth, no long distance or roaming. Inmarsat IsatPhone is the same globally, but does have different rates for landline and mobile phones, but they're very similar. Globalstar is more regional, but usually the most cost effective. If you're travelling outside North America you'll want to check your roaming price for Globalstar.
  • Can I purchase insurance or extended warranty for the satellite phones?
  • Yes, we do provide extended warranty or maintenace plans for all our satellite phones.
  • Do I need to get a new SIM card?
  • It depends on the phone service you're using. Globalstar does not use SIM cards, so no you do not need a new SIM. Inmarsat IsatPhone SIM cards do not expire, so you should not need a new one unless you're a new BlueCosmo customer. Iridium SIM cards do expire if they've not been used in a while. Send us your SIM card information and we can let you know.
