  1. Iridium Satellite Phone The Motorola 9505a is the way to go. They also have refurbished options available with a 90 day warranty (vs. 1 year for new). We bought a refurbished phone old clunker 9500 which is over 4 years old and still (knock on wood) going strong. The 9505 (without the 'a') is a version that had component supply problems and was upgraded to the 9505a.
    We typically use less than a minute or two a day for email only ... your results, and bill may vary.
  2. You'll also need the Data Kit for email (under each products features).
  3. Don't forget the Serial-USB adapter and a Pelican Hard Case is handy to have for protection.
