  1. Emergency phone

    Frank Höppener (verified owner)

    I travel a lot in remote places like the Kalahari and Namibia. Sometimes I travel alone. Then it is nice to have a phone which works everywhere. Just in case… Then you have as well your gps coordinates at hand. And it’s always nice to call a friend with the sound of a lion roar in the background 😉
    The Inmarsat 2 does just that. It looks a bit big, but in the bush that’s not a problem at all. Nice feature: all connections are covered against dust and water.
    But I still have not explored all the possibilities yet.
    A positive surprise is the level of customer service of Ashburycom. I had some connection problems, but Charles and his colleagues responded immediately. (Think about thát when you buy a new iPhone or Samsung 😉

      Hi Frank,
      Not sure if this is the right way to contact you for this but your review is all I’ve got… I just returned from a camping trip to Chobe and Moremi in Botswana and all I can think of is to go back. Namibia is also on my list. I would love to go back with a smaller group as there is more freedom but I wouldn’t dare travelling alone. If you would like to have a companion on your next trip please let me know. It’s quite difficult to find someone to join you on a trip like that and you seem to be the perfect partner as you have lots of experience.
      Many thanks, Dan.

  2. Excellent coverage

    Frederique Morisod

    Simple to use, very clear user friendly options. We have used it successfully sailing from Egypt to the Maldives and throughout the Maldives, with excellent network coverage throughout the journeys. Comes with a variety of different charging accessories which is invaluable when visiting multiple destinations.

    Good in rainforest

    Tom Prescott

    I have had a Motorola 9505a since 2002 but recently decided to change to Inmarsat and go with the isatphone 2. I use satellite phones in the rain forests of Papua New Guinea and for me the crucial factor is just getting a usable level of connectivity to the network. After extensive research which included reading part of someone’s PhD on the construction of the networks I have worked out that for a tropical rainforest user, Inmarsat is likely to be the best solution as the geostationary satelites are directly up which gives you a better chance at getting a signal through a clearing in the forest canopy relative to Iridium where the satellites can fly quite low on the horizon.
