Rent the Iridium 9505A Satellite phone and start making calls from almost anywhere in the world!

The Iridium 9505A satellite phone is the proven work horse of the Iridium network. It is significantly smaller, lighter and more resistant to water, dust and shock than the original Iridium 9500 and is ideal for industrial or rugged conditions, yet appealing to the traveling professional. It is used in almost every country by government agencies, first responders, business people, and remote travelers alike. Iridium satellite phones are used by emergency personnel all over the world.

This phone was released in 2004 and might seem a little long in the tooth, but it’s durable and gets reliable coverage on the Iridium network. In fact, this might be the simplest phone to use because it lacks options and complexity. It’s slightly big in size but is a reliable USA-made phone and a favorite among U.S. government employees. Caveat: Unlike some other phones, the Iridium 9505A rental does not have a dedicated emergency SOS button.

Renting a Phone on the Iridium Network

Iridium is forging ahead with its uncompromising vision for the future of global communications. Iridium NEXT, Iridium’s ground-breaking next-generation satellite constellation, will inspire exciting new innovations while ensuring continued high-level performance and reliability for all existing Iridium-enabled solutions. With first launch scheduled for 2015, Iridium NEXT’s backward compatibility will ensure Iridium 9505A continues to help mobilize and monitor personnel and assets with voice and data on the ground and beyond line of sight for years to come.
