Iridium 9555 Key Features


Satellite Voice Capability 

Using Iridium’s global satellite network, the 9555 allows you to make and receive phone calls anywhere in the world. The phone offers an integrated speakerphone and hands-free capability through a headset included as standard in our 9555 phone kit.


SMS and Email Messaging

The Iridium 9555 is SMS and email enabled, allowing you to stay in touch and share experiences with others anywhere in the world. SMS and email messaging is limited to 160 characters and delivery/receipt is dependent on compatibility with local mobile network carriers.


Data Tethering

Although low-speed data is possible we only advise and support connections using the RedPort Optimizer in tandem with the XGate Satellite Phone Email & Data Services. Both of these tools enhance your data connection making the most of the speed available. Any connections attempted without these solutions may appear to work, and potentially use airtime, but may not provide the expected service.



The Iridium 9555 has a 100-entry internal address book, with capacity for multiple phone numbers, email addresses and notes, and the SIM card address book has an additional 155-entry capacity. The call history retains records of received, missed and dialled calls.


Usage Control Features

The Iridium 9555 has user-configurable call timers to manage costs and a keypad lock and PIN lock for additional security.


Native Language Support 

With 21 supported menu languages, the Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone offers the best in native language support for global phone users.

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.
