Simply insert your iPhone for full walk-and-talk capability in satellite mode. Available in 12 different languages, the SatSleeve app allows you to easily integrate your iPhone contacts when making satellite calls and SMS.
Acting as a backup battery for the iPhone, Thuraya SatSleeve enables you to operate for longer periods of time without worrying about power running out.
Enhanced safety features
Thuraya SatSleeve comes with a dedicated Emergency Call button for users to make a voice call to a predefined number during emergency situations, even without the iPhone docked.
Thuraya’s robust and extensive satellite network covers more than 140 countries and two-thirds of the globe. And with the High Penetration Alerting (HPA) capability, Thuraya SatSleeve enables you to receive calls even if the satellite antenna is retracted.
