Satellite Phone Rental

Want to learn more about this. A search shows numerous plans with different phone options, overlapping rates, etc.

Looking for someone with experience who can give a few suggestions. Thinking a two week rental with the short occasional call to check in and to have along for emergency use if needed.

Re: Satellite Phone Rental

Friend of mine rents one when he runs his boat down to the Bahamas or is in Tuna tournaments. Think it runs him 50.00 @week for the phone then he buys a card for prepaid minutes.

My ability to remember lyrics from songs of the 60's far exceed my ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen

Re: Satellite Phone Rental

I have rented sat phone for past couple yrs for Colorado wilderness hunts with no cell service.. Just to check in and for emergencies.

I think it was around 150 or so for about 2 week rental..

I will try to find the info and company I have used.
