Iridium 9555

We understand your satellite phone could be a lifeline while remotely, with this in mind we chose to keep it simple. 

We consider that the Iridium 9555 is the most reliable satellite phone to rent, it is easy to use and provides basic voice and SMS communications.


Why getting a device that requires a smart phone to work or it is hard to setup for emergency communications? 

We do not rent other complicated devices because we want you to have a phone that will be fast and reliable to use when you have an emergency or you need to communicate in a timely manner.


Our rentals provide worldwide coverage. Our packages come with two batteries, waterproof case and other accessories at no additional cost!

When you pickup the rental we will give on site training, in addition to that all of our rentals come with a two page easy to follow instruction sheet so you and anyone in your party can quickly learn how to use the phone.

If we are shipping the phone to you the rental contract does not start until you receive the phone. We ship anywhere in Alaska and the lower 48.


Call us now to setup a reservation, it's free of charge and we do not require a deposit.
