Iridium Satellite Phone
If you want to stay in contact or just have piece of mind when you are in a remote location and out of mobile telephone range e.g. sailing a yacht or walking in remote parts of Camp, Iridium is ideal for your needs.
Here at Sure we sell and rent Iridium phones. For the cost of buying an Iridium phone please call freephone 131 or e-mail email@example.com.
How do I get an Iridium service?
If you purchase your own phone, we can offer you a minimum 12 month Iridium contract for £25 per month. Alternatively if you require the use of a phone for a short excursion and you don’t want ongoing monthly costs, we can rent you a phone. For our rental charges please see our costs below. Please note that our rental charge does not include call charges. To sign up for an iridium rental contract please contact freephone 131, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our shops in Stanley or MPA.
Iridium does not support emergency calls due to it being a satellite based service, therefore do not dial 999 but instead use the main police station international number 00 500 28100.
