Turn your smartphone into a satellite phone! (Apple & Android) Available in 2 different models to suit how you use your phone while outside mobile coverage areas, the SatSleeve allows for voice calls and SMS & basic internet while you’re off the grid.
How Does The Thurya Satsleeve Work?
When the Thuraya Satsleeve is turned on, the unit will create a Wi-Fi network. On your smart device, you will need to search for the Wi-Fi network and connect (like you would your Wi-Fi network at home). Once connected, simply open up the SatSleeve+ / Hotspot app to start making voice calls & sending text messages. If given permission, all of your contact will also transfer over to the app.
The Satsleve has the ability to do basic internet functions via the SatSleeve+ / Hotspot app. The speed is very slow (60 kbps) and will not support any functions which require passwords or security for example internet banking, payroll software, remote desktop ect. You do have the ability to check the weather and your email however the speed will be ALLOT slower than you are used too and the costs are allot higher (check plans).
What's The Difference Between The Hotspot & The Satsleeve+?
The Satsleeve comes in 2 versions, the Satsleeve+ & The Satsleeve Hotspot. Both of the units will connect to your smart phone by a Wi-Fi connection. However the Satsleeve+ has an attachment on the front which allows your phone to sit in the cradle (however your phone still connects to the Satsleeve by Wi-Fi). The Satsleeve Hotspot comes with a kick stand instead of the phone attachment that allows you to sit the Satsleeve on a table, car, log and easily direct the unit to be pointing at the satellite.
The attachments are interchangeable and can be purchased as extra accessories HERE
