Thuraya XT-Lite - Save $189 (with FREE Silicon Case)

Worked well Northern Territory. By having the Sat Phone put our mind at ease knowing we had communication for any issues that may have come our way as we travelled a lot of desolate roads and tracks.

Fair price for peace of mind

We never actually used the phone, it was there just for emergencies. However, it always worked when we turned it on, and it did not need recharging too often. We only had to pay $15 a month to keep it active. The account was terminated when requested without any problems. When we needed assistance setting it up the company was very responsive and helpful.

Thuraya XT Lite

Relying on the built in aerial the reception up through Alice Springs through to Darwin was very disappointing. Had a magnetic roof top aerial fitted to the Motorhome in Darwin, and from then on the reception was quite good and reliable right back till we reached the Blue Mountains near Sydney. Happy with it now, as having the magnetic aerial, are able to use it on any other vehicle.

Thuraya XT-Lite

Very good experience overall. We recently completed a road trip through the remote regions of Sth Aust, Western Australia, N.T. and found that we had phone connection at all times.

Thuraya XT-Lite

Generally very good but only have it for important contact when normal mobile unavailable. Reception not so good down south. Should make it obvious that the self check no. is not a free call.

Sat Phone Sales

Hi David, the free test number applies only to contracted plans. As such it is a chargeable call on the non-contract casual plan. This is a decision of the service provider that we can't influence, and yes - we agree they could make it clearer. But you CAN call the handset from another number and pay only the cost of a normal mobile phone call - effectively FREE if you are on a capped or unlimited plan!
