Thuraya sat phone

Well operation experience could have been much better, with many hurdles getting it going no help supplied with the complicated product to get it on air had to reach out to service provider for help to eventually get it set up.

Thuraya XT Lite Purchase

Small and light and what you expect in a Sat Phone. On arrival I charged it up, then took it outside to see how it connected up to the satellite. Living in the far south of WA amongst some tall trees, it didn't take long for the phone to register to the satellite and be available for calls. The lead up to it's arrival was quick, including the SIM activation process. The SIM was active before the phone arrived, so it was ready to go as soon as it landed on the doorstep. Very easy to do and the information provided was exceptional.

Thuraya and Pivotel

So far so good. Nice handset but haven't used it in the field so far. Communications with Pivotel and ease of activating has been perfect.


Sat Phone Sales

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. Hopefully you have now had time to use the phone in the field. We take our feedback very seriously and wonder what we could have done to warrant a full star rating. Is there any part of our service we should improve? Thanks SPS
