Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone

Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone. The Iridium 9555 is the entry-level Iridium satellite phone, ideal for the more price conscious buyer who still wants the benefit of Iridiums truly global satellite coverage. The Iridium 9555 builds on Iridium’s long-standing history of providing reliable essential communications from the remotest regions of the globe.

Unlike the other more expensive Iridium satellite phones, the Iridium 9555 satellite phone does not come with global positioning system, tracking features, or a rescue button. However the voice calling and text messaging features on the Iridium 9555 is as good as on any other Iridium satellite phone, which makes it ideal for those who just wants a basic Iridium satellite phone.

Just like all other Iridium satellite phones, the Iridium 9555 satellite phone has a simple yet very intuitive user interface. Network registration is fast and simple and due to the omni directional coverage provided by the Iridium satellite network the user is not required to do any sort of antenna pointing as is the case with other brands of satellite phones.

The Iridium 9555 satellite phone comes with an enhanced short message email capability, and anyone can send texts to the Iridium 9555 free of charge by means of the web app that we give all our subscribers access to. The Iridium 9555 also has a very handy feature in terms of a speakerphone function which is among the best of the Iridium satellite phones.
