XT Lite

The whole online process was smooth and the price of the XT Lite was more than competitive. Great communication from company and set up with sim super easy. Inserted Sim after charging phone and it locked into satellite very quickly. Purchased this phone as a replacement for an Iridium sat phone that was too expensive to have on standby just for emergency use and text messages when in remote areas and at sea.

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.

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.
