If you are planning for your next excursion, adventure, research trip, or personal challenge, and you need a robust and powerful satellite comms unit with you, consider an Iridium 9555 Sat Phone rental. It’s very easy to rent from us, and saves you committing to the full purchase RRP. Plus, it’s the ideal solution for short-to-mid-term trips with 7-day minimum terms on all of our rental products.

Features of Iridium Sat Phone Rental

One of Iridium’s flagship satellite phones, the 9555, achieves global communication and is rugged, shock resistant and water resistant, meaning it can be taken to, and used in, some of the world’s most volatile regions.

Some of the key features of the Iridium 9555 are:

  • Water, shock and dust resistance for unparalleled durability
  • Compact physical footprint for streamlined portability
  • Intuitive user interface for out-of-the-box functionality
  • Enhanced SMS and email messaging capability
  • Integrated speakerphone
  • Headset and hands-free capability
  • Internally stowed antenna
  • Mini-USB data port.

Battery & Coverage of Device

Users of this powerful sat phone rental device should expect some of the highest standards when it comes to device performance. Luckily, the Iridium 9555 does not disappoint, especially when it comes to the long-lasting battery life. With up to 4 hours active talk time and up to 30 hours on passive standby, the Iridium sat phone rental will not let you down when you are out in some of the world’s most remote regions. Coupled with this, its coverage is truly global, meaning communication can be achieved from virtually anywhere on earth, including polar regions.

Special Features by Iridium

What the Iridium 9555 won’t do isn’t worth worrying about, especially when you are conducting mission-critical operations either on the frozen icescapes of Antarctica or deep in the scorching Sahara desert. It doesn’t let you take selfies or play your Spotify playlist, but it will let you get in touch with loved ones, colleagues, or team mates in the field from any location in the world either by voice call or two-way SMS message.


Because the Iridium 9555 will likely be used in potentially chaotic environments e.g. the scenes of natural disasters, warzones, or in adverse weather, the devices themselves are designed to be as intuitive as possible, with backlit, weather-resistant keypads, hands-free capabilities, quick-connect voicemail functionality, and integrated speakerphone for even further ease of use. In an emergency, it’s vitally important to avoid complications or interruptions, which is why the 9555 sat phone is as user-friendly as it is.


Renting an Iridium 9555 satellite phone from us is probably one of the most cost-effective and sensible ways of achieving globally-reaching satellite communication from any location in the world. It is ideal if you are travelling to a remote region and will need to make contact with those back home, at the office, or elsewhere in the world via voice or SMS. The 9555 will not let you down thanks to its generous battery life and ruggedised housing; it really can be used in even the most extreme environment.

As always, our team of experts is here to help. So, if you need any advice about renting the Iridium 9555 satellite phone, contact us via:
