We live a hard life in the boonies of northern Alaska and a Sat phone is a must have especially in the winter time when it can get to -80 degrees and you are relying almost completely on your vehicle and the small amount of gear you can carry. We purchased this phone as soon as it was available on the market so it has seen a few years of use. The size is very good and is easy to carry on your person without too much discomfort. It will work in very cold weather as long as you pack it insulated or near your body. In winter we store it on our person under our gear in a soft waterproof case, in the warm months we store it in our back pack in a waterproof and shatterproof case. The battery lasts a very long time and we never had problems with it though after a few years it holds a charge for less time then it did new, we are finally buying a replacement now. Extra batteries are fairly cheap at about 25$ a pop. Don't lose the charger plug in as they can cost over a hundred bucks. We also charge the phone on our goal zero solar power set up when we are out and it works great. It is very important that you understand and have reliable phone service basics besides the phone itself, and it's pretty much your choice like regular phone services. We found a company out of Florida that are amazing and very helpful. We re-charge our minutes every six months for around $250, which gives us enough minutes to use for check ins and for emergencies. The service also lets us make emergency calls even without minutes which is awesome. You can also send text messages to this phone via the internet which has been very helpful. It's easy to use and is intuitively set up, but you will need to read the owners manual.Read more ›

I am very happy with the Iridium 9555. The phone was delivered on time and was in perfect shape. Everything needed to get up and running . Two antennas ,a soft case, 12 volt charger and a wall charger with adapters for all outlets. The SIM card was furnished as well. A very professional product! Works good and is built to last a long time. Sweet....

After reading the reviews here I opted to purchase my Iridium phone from an authorized reseller directly. Doing this, one signs up for whatever plan one desires and the phone arrives activated, and ready to use once the sim is inserted. The battery seating, on the Extreme, is needed to get a waterproof seal and is not an issue.

Phone works as advertised. No fuss.

Performed flawlessly for a couple of years in the Caribbean, usually when we were at sea and couldn't get a cell signal. Even then it was cheaper than the cell phone charges some of my passengers came home to. Quick and clear connections. Robust construction. Easy to use. Only 4 stars because it's too expensive and the price hasn't changed for years while the competitors have all come way down in price, closer to $500. But it was recommended for reliability and sturdiness.

I bought the 9555 and received it about 10 days ago. I have actually never used it so I don't know if it works or not because I have spent the last freaking 10 days trying to figure out how to use it! This is NOT for the person who thinks, "I'll buy a satellite phone, turn it on, and talk to anyone I want to,from almost anywhere". The fact is that when you get the phone, having spent well over $1,000, it won't do anything at all. You go outside, turn it on, wait a few minutes and it says "Insert SIM card". I had done that. Removing, re-inserting, cleaning connections, etc. still result in the messages "SIM card not found" or "Insert SIM card". There are no instructions on how to get service or make a call, or what the phone number is. Nothing except technical details about the phone and how to use the setup menu and voicemail that WON"T WORK because the SIM card won't work. That began my ordeal, writing to Iridium for help. Frequent emails to iridium elicited no reponse. I wrote and asked, "My phone says "Insert SIM card, but I have inserted the SIM card. What's wrong?" "Do I have a phone number?", "How to I set up an account to pay for service?' "Is it billed monthly, like my regular phone service?". With no responses, I tried to go on line to their website and to user blogs for my answers. Nothing! So I registered for a new SIM card, figuring that when I get it I can plug it in and see what happens. It's only $60 or so, and it may save me many more hours of hassle. It hasn't come in yet. There is virtually no information on line as to how to actually USE the phone. They will not provide a phone number to call. Is that crazy, or what? For a phone service company to REFUSE to let you reach them by phone??!!Read more ›

Outstanding Sat phone!! Originally bought an Inmarsat but traded for this. Very pleased with reception and features. Blue Cosmos was very easy to work with and gave me terrific customer service.
