How to Use iSatPhone 2

SOS Button

If you have rented your iSatPhone 2 and you want to be able to make use of the SOS button on your phone, you will need to contact GEOS and buy travel insurance and or search and rescue insurance prior to your travels. You will be required to register your rental phone with GEOS prior to departure, and you will also need to deregister it from GEOS after your return. There is a USD50 handling fee for us to handle deregistration on your behalf.

Simply register your phone at and you can travel with the peace of mind of knowing that when you press that SOS button, the guys at GEOS will know you’re in trouble. During registration you will inform GEOS of who your emergency contacts are, so that when you press the SOS button they know which relatives, friends, or colleagues to notify that you’re in trouble.

If you intend to be able to make use of the SOS button in an emergency it is imperative that you test it before your departure from civilisation to make sure that it functions correctly and that you are satisfied that it is working OK. Please note that, the standard service from GEOS does not include any search and rescue (SAR) services. Should you want search and rescue you can sign up for that as an optional extra, at a nominal fee. See the GEOS website for details.

  2. 5 out of 5 Excellent service & a terrific product.

    Following Shaun’s recommendation, it was an easy choice to pick a satphone from Ashbury for another ocean passage. Charles provided clear and concise information in response to the few queries I had and the phone was delivered on the requested date in robust packaging. During our voyage, the phone provided excellent coverage and continuous contact with shore support ensuring we remained clear of the hurricane chasing us. The facility for those ‘at home’ to send free texts was especially appreciated by the crew. The cost of phone insurance is, not unreasonably, quite high but can be countered using home insurance policies. All in all, an excellent service & product provided by Ashbury. I will make use of this service again and strongly recommend the company to anyone looking to hire a satphone.

  3. 5 out of 5 Excellent Service from Ashbury

    From the ordering process online, to the delivery of the phone, and the actual usage of the unit, everything was seamless. We used the phone in Botswana on vacation, and would definitely rent from Ashbury again.

    5 out of 5 Great for our ocean adventure

    (verified owner)

    Was looking for a sat phone to rent whilst away on an ocean sailing adventure. After looking at many websites I found Ashbury satcom and was impressed with the prices on offer. The deposit required with Ashbury was significantly less that the competitors and the rental prices and tariff charges were very good.
    Having decided to go with Ashbury I was very impressed with the level of service Charles gave me, I had a number of questions about text messaging and the sending of automated tracking messages so our shore support could ensure we had up to date weather forecasts. Charles also gave me the phone number of the handset they were supplying prior to dispatch so we could link this with our PLB and EPIRB on-board. The phone was delivered in good time in a sturdy Pelican case with all chargers required, a simple set of instructions was sent out via email which also had a method for sending free texts to the phone which was great for weather forecasts on a daily basis.
    Great service and quality kit that made our voyage a much more pleasant experience.
