Iridium satellite phones from TravelCell are capable of making and receiving calls all over the world, including the North and South poles and the oceans. The only exceptions are fast moving vehicles & those areas restricted by the US Department of State. Currently, those countries are Hungary, Poland, North Korea, and North Sri Lanka. The antenna to the Satellite phone must have a direct line of sight to a Satellite so it is best to be outside with no obstruction to the sky. Satellite phones do work on cruise ships, however, clients may experience dropped calls due to a change in the ship's direction.
Included with your satellite phone rental is a Motorola 9505 handset by Iridium, complete accessory pack including easy-to-read, easy-to-carry instruction booklet, charger, in-vehicle charger and travel adapters for foreign outlets. Our Satellite Phone customers also get access to our dedicated Satellite Phone Customer Support team.
