Good service thank you. The phone plus aerial all worked well.
Hi Jeremy, after discussing your review we're glad to hear the product and service fully met your expectations. Whilst we strive to give 5 star service, and deliver 5 star products, we understand that sometimes people will not deliver a "top score", as there must always be room for improvement even if the improvement isn't quite yet evident. :)
I recently purchased a Thuraya SatSleeve and the experience with SatPhone Sales was very good, including them following up with me on a couple of matters to ensure I had selected the right product. The Thuraya is a little more sensitive to tree cover than I had hoped but is otherwise performing well.
The Satphone Sales staff were excellent, ringing after my order to check that the timing of delivery was going to work for me. It was sent express and came remarkably quickly to remote NT. Still don't have an Optus SIM card so can't comment on the use of the satphone sleeve
hi, im happy with ph, bur you sent the wrong one, or i ordered the wrong one, i want the flip type one with car kit,
Am very happy with this product. Is a lot easier sending texts using own phone + have access to all normal phone contacts.
