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.

12V charger is an option?????????????????

Cant figut=re out why a 12v charger is NOT included when your paying $829. 240V is not much use if your in the middle of no where and dont have/use an inverter. $15 a month whether your using the phone or not......................... Think ill be going with this set up and ONLY pay when you use the sat phone

Sat Phone Sales

Hi Mick, we see that you are not a customer (yet?) but want to leave a review? Usually we get pre-sale inquiries by email or telephone, but we'll try and address your issues anyway. I'm not aware that most devices come with a 12v charger. I know almost all mobile phones do not come with a 12v charger. We do not bundle the charger in the pricing (remember there are no "free" inclusions - somebody always pays!) as not everyone wants the 12v charger so we do not see why we should offer only the bundle and not as discrete components. That allows you and others to pay only for the parts they want or need. Thank you for providing the link to Optus. We have not seen them have stock since something like 2017. They will not and cannot supply you an XT-Lite at their "recommended" price. We feel it is deceptive and misleading conduct to advertise a product you cannot deliver, at any price point. If Optus can supply the XT-Lite at that price we will buy our XT-Lite stock from them! Let us know!!! The Optus plan does NOT allow you to be connected and pay only for calls. You pay $15 every month you want to be in service with call charges on top. The service is assigned a satellite number which is only charged at mobile rates if the caller is also on Optus. Otherwise callers will pay satellite rates to reach you, and if they are on a capped or unlimited plan may not be able to call you at all, as the number will be deemed to be a "premium" number. Not having a standard mobile number, as we arrange connection to, is a potentially major cost, and very inconvenient. And yes, there is, through us, a $25 one time activation fee for each plan activation. I hope that helps you understand your options, and whatever way you choose to go, wish you happy and safe travels. Any question - please don't hesitate to reach out by email or phone. Here to help.
