Satellite Phone Rentals

Many have found that the usage of satellite phones is a smart choice whenever they go for traveling abroad. The perceptions are the satellite phones are better in terms of their receptions and coverage. However, due to the fact that using satellite phones will cost you more than using the standard hand held devices or normal phones is not allowing many of us to enjoy the great service offered in satellite phones packages. Today we will look into few of packages that are offered worldwide for those who are in needs of high quality services.

Traveling outside from the country requires a lot of preparation and it is common amongst travelers to leave out few things that are important to bring with. One of them is cell phone. However, some claimed that the reason why they left their mobile phone behind is due to the fact that their phone services are not available out of the country or that the phone that they have is not from GSM type and therefore can’t be used to insert other carriers SIM card. What are the options then if you need to travel out of the country and the same time you want to keep in touch with your loved ones as well as your business associates?

Yes, you can have a great and sophisticated mobile phone such as BlackBerry Bold 9000 mobile phone or Nokia N97 mobile phone but all these phones are useless when you travel abroad if they can’t be used at all. Most phone carriers in the United States require you to buy their phone plans with the mobile too and therefore the phones are locked. They can’t be used for other carriers even if you try to change the SIM card. Do you know how to change your SIM card? I bet that some don’t even know how to their SIM cards which are located most of the time beneath your mobile’s battery at the back side of the phone.

Whenever you travel abroad one of the most important things that you should bring is certainly your mobile phone. The mobile should be your mean to communicate with your family back in the home country and also an effective mean to communicate with your business colleagues. Of course that some may prefer to communicate using emails or video conferences as these mediums may appear cheaper than any other communication mediums. However, thanks to rapid technology advancements, mobile phone these days should be able to be used either within the country or also outside of the country.

There are times when the mobile becomes useless when you travel abroad. This is usually the case when the phone is locked by the phone service provider in order to avoid the clients from running away with the mobile phone. If you are one of those who have this kind of locked phones, then don’t worry too much since there is another way to communicate with your loved ones anytime anywhere. You can use satellite phones.

Satellite prepaid phones are available for rentals anywhere in the country. You can rent this satellite mobile for days or weeks and impressively this mobile can be used anywhere without much hassle. As you know, since they are satellite-based, the phones are powerful enough in terms of the signal reception as well as the quality of the voice calls. The satellite phones are certainly the alternative to bringing your mobile abroad. Renting the satellite phones is a breeze since you can just look up for any available mobile rental shop near your location and you should be able to easily rent one of these satellite prepaid phones.

Phones that are satellite-based are phones that can’t be denied for their excellent performance. If you travel at places that are located in mountainous areas or full of forests areas, then I suggest you to use satellite mobile. How good a satellite phone is? Well in order for you to find out why a satellite phone is always a better choice, you should first understand the concept behind a satellite phone. Most satellite phones these days use LEO or Low Earth Orbit satellite technology. The technology of this satellite system has a lot of advantages where it provides worldwide wireless coverage where the receptions are virtually unstoppable no matter what obstacles you have in the surrounding areas such as mountains or if you are somewhere in low altitude areas.

Since satellite phones are the best choices when traveling abroad, many companies have emerged to reap the money that can be gained from this business. Some companies provided crap services. These companies are just trying to earn some easy money out of us. However, there are still some good companies out there who are committed to provide great satellite cell phones.

We will take a look at some of these satellite phones that can either be rented or purchased from these reliable companies.

Iridium Satellite Phones Rental

You can actually get this satellite phone for rental from SatellitePhoneStore.Com. From what I read in some discussions in cell phone forums, the site is offering you a wide range of satellite phones for rental. Therefore I can say that this company has quite a reputation in satellite phones industry. You can rent the satellite phone from as low as $24.95 a week. The Global Iridium satellite phone is claimed by the company to be the only truly global satellite phone network. If you rent the phone, you can make long distance calls to United States if you travel to any other countries. There will be no long distance or roaming charges for that. All the usual basic functions such as voice calls, text messages (SMS), and also the capability to make local emergency calls is available in this satellite phone.

If you prefer to send out text messages or SMS using this satellite phone, you will be charged only 59 cents for each outgoing SMS. To me, that is considered cheap since if you just bring your normal cell phone and activate the global roaming capability, you might be charged for more for that same purpose. This is what is best about renting satellite phones. Each approved rental will be given the full package including two batteries and then you will be given a brief lecture on how to properly use the satellite phone. You will be told that the satellite phone can be used almost anywhere. For instance, if you are supposed to be working at the ocean, you will be told on how to get the best reception and coverage. If they don’t tell you, then make an effort to ask them.

If you frequently travel abroad and tend to travel at hilly places, I recommend you to get yourself a satellite phone. Instead of renting the phone, you should buy one for yourself. The company does have a great satellite phone for sale. The latest satellite phones that they have in stock are Iridium 9555 portable satellite phones, Iridum 9505A satellite phones, Motorola 9500 satellite phones, and Kyocera SS66K satellite phones.

The 9555 portable satellite phone is a small and light satellite phone. It is built and designed to be stronger than any other Iridium satellite phones. The company also claimed the satellite cell phone is the smallest satellite phone ever created. If you purchase this phone, you will be given a phone charger, an international plug kit or travel kit, a car charger, a rechargeable lithium ion battery, a USB to mini-USB data cable for connecting to laptop or PC, a hands-free headset, a cell phone holster, a manual (of course you need that), and an auxiliary antenna and its adapter.

Let’s take a look at the satellite phone’s specifications. The phone has a dimension of 143mm by 55mm by 30mm and weighs about 266 grams. The standby time is up to thirty hours and talk time can go up to four hours. The display however does not a wide screen and definitely not my choice if I want to get myself a normal cell phone. Since this is a satellite phone, it is designed to be rugged for all kinds of weather conditions, therefore the keypad is weather-resistant and it is illuminated. The satellite phone is also pre-programmable with international access codes, so you easily navigate for any international code that you would like to dial to with this handheld phone. Apart from that, this unique satellite phone also has other standard features like voice mailbox, ringtones and alert tones, internal phonebook, and SIM-based address book with 155 entry capacity.

The Iridium 9505A portable satellite phone is similar to Motorola 9505 but this latest invention is smaller in size and lighter in weight. The complete package can cost you less than $1400 but if you prefer to have the demo satellite phone, you can get it for less than $1200. The demo version is subject to available stock and they are actually a collection of rented satellite phones. So don’t be shocked to see these phones with some flaws since they have been rented for many times but overall the demo satellite phones are still in good condition. I am pretty sure that they have refurbished the cell phones to be qualified to be sold again.

Motorola Iridium 9500 satellite phone demo version on the other hand is also a great choice if you don’t have the budget. If you purchase the Motorola satellite phone, you will be given a warranty of six months. The “Motorola Iridium 9500” satellite phone comes with high capacity battery, lather case, portable auxiliary antenna, and other necessary travel kit. The Kyocera SS66K satellite cell phone is by far not really a great choice (to me at least) but the phone is still reliable. It is an alternative version of Iridium phones.

Globalstar Satellite Phones

The company also has a few Globalstar satellite phones for sale. According to them, the Globalstar GSP-1700 satellite phone is not anymore in stock. The Globalstar satellite phone is a small satellite phone and the designs are great. The phone has an antenna at one end which communicates with the constellation of Globalstar satellites if held in a vertical position. Since it is very light (about 200 grams) and small, the “Globalstar satellite phone” is a smart choice for light travelers.

Another satellite phone from Globalstar is GSP-1600. The GSP-1600 satellite phone meets the needs of any users working in areas where the normal cell phone’s coverage is either unavailable or inaccessible. The Globalstar cell phone is designed to extend the capability to communicate from remote areas and therefore a perfect choice for travelers especially businessmen.

If you are interested in renting the satellite phones for travel purposes, you may contact the company for more information. They have many locations scattered all across America. They have satellite phone stores in Florida, Alaska, New York, and California.

Can you make money from using Maxis Hotlink prepaid?

If you are a long time user of Hotlink, then I believe you have more than the knowledge on how Maxis charges you for anything and everything. Why waste the money for things you do not really need when you can actually earn money from it? You may not be as rich as Ananda Krishnan, the owner of Maxis Malaysia, but at least you can earn some money from all the telcos though you stick with Maxis Hotlink.

What if I use Celcom Xpax?

I know that sometimes you don't have the courage to try switching from one service to another. You might say that you are not sure about the advantages of other phone plans or network. Frankly say, that unsure feeling is just something you developed inside you due to successful marketing strategy from Celcom. Either using Celcom Xpax or Blue, it won't matter and you don't have to worry much if you plan to switch to Hotlink or Digi. Remember, at this time the cost to change or transfer is still free and therefore take advantage of that. Change and try it for a month and then you can always change back to your original provider. However, as far as money is concern, go for package that offers you lower call rates and that will absolutely help you to earn more money when you join Mymode.
