Isatphone 2The Inmarsat IsatPhone2

Buy an ex-hire Inmarsat IsatPhone2 for $795 includes 6 months warranty, 12 & 240 volt chargers, Dolfin box, GST and delivery.


Inmarsat is one of the worlds largest satellite phone companies. https://www.inmarsat.com/service/isatphone2/

With three stationary satellites inline with the equator (above PNG, Africa and East Pacific) the Inmarsat has excellent clear reception for most users - outside the polar regions.

 

With the advantage of one of Inmarsat's three stationary satellites being above PNG, the reception is excellent in Australia. We find that Inmarsat is the most reliable network on the market and the call quality is very good. Once the phone has registered with the satellite you dont experience drop outs like you do with the orbiting satellites.

Note - The phone needs to see the satellite, so if you have a hill between you and the Satellite it won't work. If you are in Hobart the satellite is 40 degrees above the north horizon (Brisbane 56d, Perth 43d).



There are two option for the call plan, post paid or pre paid.

PRE PAID

Your call costs
The system of pre paid credit on the handset is "use it or loose it".
The current rate is 1.3 units = 1 minute and SMS = half a unit
If you top up before the expiry date any unused credit is carried forward.
You can check balance (free call) of credit available from the handset.... dial *106# (Star106hash)

IsatPhone Pro/Link 50 units - 30 Days Validity - $80
IsatPhone Pro/Link 100 units - 90 Days Validity - $150
IsatPhone Pro/Link 30 day extensions (no units) - $40

If you choose to let it expire you can re activate the SIM by adding any of the above within the next 12 months.


To call any Mobile/cellphone/Isatphone or Landline in any country - 1.3 units per minute, SMS (half a unit).

You can top up the SIM with credit at anytime (24/7 days).

 

The phone has it's own email address when on the pre paid call plan e.g.   8707(your number)@message.inmarsat.com

It is the ideal outbound communication tool. We are selling a lot of these phones to clients who need a satellite phone and don't want to commit to a call plan.


The IsatPhone is best suited for making outbound calls/emails/SMS as and when you need to. The incoming calls are no cost to you but expensive for the caller. 

 

Post Paid
The post paid system is a $40 per month call plan (there are other option if you are going to use the phone more), you can choose to pay a $50 connection fee upfront and that then lets you cancel the call plan anytime you like.

For the $40 per month you get $10 in included call and calls will be billed at 75c per 30 sec adn 50c per SMS. The sim will have a Australian mobile phone number (i.e. 04) so people can call into the satellite phone an only pay the same as calling an Australian mobile phone.

 

 

Features of the IsatPhone2 include voicemail, text, Bluetooth, email messaging (for pre-paid only) and GPS location data.
Battery life: up to 8 hours talk time and up to 160 hours standby time.
Operates at -20° to 55°C; dust, splash and shock resistant.

The data can be done.
It has been a struggle to make it happen with very inconsistent results. Although I have managed to download GRIB files, it was slow but it worked. The ability to download GRIB files is a great asset so I will continue to refine the process and let you know.

 

Emergency Numbers to use when calling from the IsatPhone - 000 is available, just dial 000.
