Thuraya Phones

The Thuraya network covers all EMEA & APAC regions, so, if you are hoping to use your Thuraya phone anywhere in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Midde East, or Australia, then you will receive clear satellite reception. However, we would not recommend using one in the Americas as Thuraya does not serve those regions. We would instead suggest an Inmarsat satellite phone for these regions.

General Thuraya Advantages

When you pick up something like the Thuraya X5 Touch satellite phone you know you are holding a quality device in your hand. Closely resembling an Android smartphone thanks to its touchscreen, it will feel very familiar, allowing for greater accessibility and ease of use.

Thuraya’s line-up of satellite phones also boast a couple stand-out features like the XT-PRO’s nine-hour battery life, and the true cost-effectiveness of the XT LITE, making the cost of a Thuraya satellite phone very appealing.

Thuraya Equipment Options

Thuraya doesn’t only offer satellite phones. The SatSleeve+ allows you to transform your smartphone into a satellite communications device, while the SatSleeve Hotspot is an ultra-portable WiFi hotspot device that allows you to make calls, use messaging applications, update your social network, send and receive email and SMS, and access apps.

Each device also comes with an additional safety feature: a programmable SOS button that works even if your smartphone isn’t connected. This convenient function lets you call a predefined number of your choice.
