Iridium 9555

Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone.

The Iridium 9555 is the entry-level Iridium satellite phone, ideal for the more price conscious buyer who still wants the benefit of Iridiums truly global satellite coverage. The Iridium 9555 builds on Iridium’s long-standing history of providing reliable essential communications from the remotest regions of the globe.

Unlike the other more expensive Iridium satellite phones, the Iridium 9555 satellite phone does not come with global positioning system, tracking features, or a rescue button. However the voice calling and text messaging features on the Iridium 9555 is as good as on any other Iridium satellite phone, which makes it ideal for those who just wants a basic Iridium satellite phone.

Just like all other Iridium satellite phones, the Iridium 9555 satellite phone has a simple yet very intuitive user interface. Network registration is fast and simple and due to the omni directional coverage provided by the Iridium satellite network the user is not required to do any sort of antenna pointing as is the case with other brands of satellite phones.

The Iridium 9555 satellite phone comes with an enhanced short message email capability, and anyone can send texts to the Iridium 9555 free of charge by means of the web app that we give all our subscribers access to. The Iridium 9555 also has a very handy feature in terms of a speakerphone function which is among the best of the Iridium satellite phones.

    Thx for the help with the phone. The whole idea of buying a Satellite Phone was totally overwhelming in terms of the how and what. The products and application became easy when I hit the button on the Ashbury website. Thx a lot Charles.

  2. The 9555 is a modern update of mine old 9505 Iridium Motorola

    Tj. Adema (verified owner)

    The satphone is much more compact and looks nice. Easy recharge with the new jack plug and recharger. Also the speaker funtion is new to me and I like that. It is your lifeline in the remote areas and it works 100 %
    I am also very happy with the Ashburry company, because they respond fast and are reliable people, thanks Charles.
    They deliver very fast en keep you updated about everything.

    This phone has often saved my bacon whilst in the real wild in Zambia and Zimbabwe on hunting and fishing expeditions.
    What an absolute pleasure and rewarding experience to know you can communicate from anywhere at any time with anybody!
