Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone

Our Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone is a stripped-down entry level Iridium satellite phone that offers basic text and voice calling around the world including polar regions.

The Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone runs on one of the largest satellite constellations in existence, offering truly global coverage of all the earth’s lands, seas and skies.

The Iridium 9555 is an entry-level Iridium satellite phone, ideal for the more price conscious buyer who still wants the benefit of Iridium’s truly global satellite coverage.

Unlike the other more expensive Iridium phones, notably absent from the Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone are GPS, position reporting, SOS button, and ruggedness features.

However the voice call and text messaging features on the Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone is as good as on any other Iridium phone, so there is nothing inferior in that regard.

The omni-directional antennas of the Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone means the user never has to do antenna pointing as may sometimes be required with other satphones.

Friends, family and colleagues  can send free text messages to Iridium 9555 Satellite Phones using a free web app that Ashbury SatCom gives all our customers access to.
