Iridium 9555 vs 9575 Extreme

Iridium satellite phones are suitable for voice calls and short email messaging.  Iridium Extreme gives you the additional advantage of GPS tracking and SOS button - aside from the design this is the only difference between the 9555 and Extreme models.

Not all mobile networks allow you to send text messages to satellite phones and as a result text messaging can be unreliable. Please check with your provider or contact us for further information.
