We have hired phones to clients on over 4,500 occasions, we can tell you exactly what you can expect from either purchasing or renting any satellite phone.


There are three real choices for Satellite phones in Australia, we sell and hire all.

Our commitment to you - $10 in free satellite phone calls for all hires.
Many people will hire a satellite phone for emergency back up. We will offer you $10 in free call because we want you to use and test the handset, so if that emergency happens you know exactly how it works. Learn how it works before you leave GSM range. For example, make sure if you plan exchange SMS please test both out and in bound, because sometimes it will not work.... you can then call us to apply a fix.

It is important to us that you are able to make full use of the phone, this is why we are giving you the first $10 at no charge.

 

Be careful when calling a different satellite provider from another satellite phone, 
if you are calling numbers starting with +8816, +0147, +8707... it can be a very expensive call.

speak to us for more details.

Hire or rent the Thuraya SatSleeve Hotspot and Satsleeve+Thuraya Hotspot & Plus
Perfect for long chats, SMS and low band width data.

 

screen shot.JPG (12778 bytes)Thuraya released (Nov '15) a new updated Satsleeve phone.
The Satsleeve Hotspot and the Satsleeve+.

This is a big improvement on the previous Satsleeve, where your smartphone controled the satsleeve via BlueTooth and you put the satsleeve against your head to talk.

 

 

The Hotspot and Plus are the same handset the only difference is the plastic bracket. We feel the Satsleeve hotspot is the best option. 
The voice now comes out of your smartphone as per the IridiumGO. The satsleeve is a good product. Call us for a chat.

 

The cost to hire the Satsleeve is $184 for 1 week, $229 for 10 days,  $274 for 2 weeks.  (for longer periods please call - it gets cheaper)  Includes $10 in free calls
Compared to the XT lite the Satsleeve Hotspot and Plus are ideal for SMS and (limited) data. If you do not need this option and just need the phone for predominatly emergency and the odd chat then we suggest renting the XT lite.

Outgoing calls costs are $1.00 per minute for calls to Australian numbers from anywhere on the planet. You can SMS any mobile for 50c.
Incoming calls are no charge to you.

When calling you, the caller pays standard mobile rates - Note* regardless to where you are on the planet.
