Call us to get our 5 cents worth and see if this handset is right for you! 

This handset comes with the best external antenna so great for people needing continuous contact while on the move.  While the newer model (9575) has been out for some years, we still feel the 9555 is a better option for most users.  Iridium is the longest running satellite handset operator, therefore appears to be the most popular.
