NEW!! 9555 Satellite phone rental

The time tested, adventure ready certified, cult level inspiring Iridium satellite phone just got an upgrade: the slimmer, lighter,  9555 model! Same reliability, rugged exterior, awesome set of features, but in a more elegant, easier to carry handset!

Satellite phone rental includes VoiceMail, free incoming calls and a complete accessory pack. All of Phonerental’s satellite phone rental solutions include 24 Hour Global Support, 365 days a year.

Our satellite phone rental is based on the Iridium phone system,  a satellite-based Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) system, providing complete global, wireless digital communication. This system is the only provider of truly global satellite voice and data solutions with complete coverage of the Earth (including oceans, airways and Polar regions). Through a constellation of 66 Low-Earth Orbiting satellites, our Iridium satellite phone rental delivers essential communication services to and from remote areas where terrestrial communications are not available.

Our per minute rates are $1.99 per minute for all outgoing calls to cellphones, land line phones and other Iridium phones.  We charge 5 minutes per day of talk time to use.  Minutes are pooled, so if you rent for 5 days, you are charged for 25 minutes that you can use in any of those days!  And of course, all incoming calls are free of charge to you!

** What is the 2 stage dialing with our satellite phone rentals?

The Two-Stage Dialing Platform was developed to allow callers the ability to call an Iridium subscriber via a local phone number in Arizona. This alleviates an issue with some long distance carriers not allowing calls to the 8816 country code (Iridium). 

It also helps keep the cost of calling down, as the caller is charged only for the call to Arizona. The rest of the call is charged to the Iridium subscriber, typically at a lower rate than a long distance call to Iridium directly. Some carriers, speciall cellphone carriers have reported charging anywhere from $3.99 a minute to $8.99 a minute to call directly to an Iridium phone!

The calling party dials an Arizona USA number (+1.480.768.2500) This connects the caller to Iridium’s Two-Stage Dialing platform located in Tempe, Arizona.

Using automated voice prompts, the calling party enters the Iridium subscriber's phone number (8816......) The system will identify the IRIDIUM subscriber and connect the call. If there is no answer, the call will then be forwarded to the Iridium subscriber's voice mail.

FREE text message sending!
