Best value for money satelite Phone on the market
Tested the Thuraya satellite Phone on one Desert Trip so far and after having had Inmarsat as well as Iridium previously I have to say I'm super happy. Like most Satellite Phones the phone is fairly simple and very old school in regards to the usability (similar to Inmarsat and Iridium) but having it mounted in the vehicle window I had reception most of the time even in the vehicle (when driving north). I used the phone every day to check back in with the family and to get weather updates and the feature that people can call you for the cost of a regular mobile call (so free on an unlimited plan) is just brilliant. Reception in the Desert was good as long as you have antenna aligned. Definitely, the best value for money Satelite System in Australia and the support from SatPhonesales is brilliant.

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.

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.
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.
