Thuraya SatSleeve Hotspot & SatSleeve +
Turn your smartphone into a satellite phone! The next generation of adaptor for your smartphone has arrived. Available in 2 different models to suit how you use your phone while outside mobile coverage areas, the Thuraya SatSleeve allows for voice calls, SMS, email and app access* while you’re off the grid. It also has a dedicates SOS button that can be used without a smartphone connected.
The Thuraya Satsleeve uses a universal adaptor and is suitable for almost all late model smartphones between 58 and 85 mm in width. The Satsleeve Hotspot allows you to use your smartphone separate from the satellite device. Simply set the Hotspot outside in view of the sky and your phone can connect to the device remotely. This is perfect for users with a caravan, as you can sit inside while making calls! The satsleeve can even receive calls even if the satellite antenna is retracted, reducing the number of missed calls!
The Thuraya network has one geostationary satellite located near Singapore, and provides great coverage to users in the northern states of Australia. Users of Thuraya satellite phone products in QLD, the NT and northern WA will receive the best signal. This satellite network is extremely cost effective and great value for money.
Use of satellite telecommunications services and devices may be prohibited or restricted in some countries.
Recent updates to iOS and Android operating systems have changed the way alerts work on smartphones when Apps are running in the background or the screen is locked. If the SatSleeve App is running in the background or your screen is locked you may not receive an incoming call alert on your smartphone when someone is calling you. This will be your user experience if your smartphone runs iOS 13 or Android 10. This will affect iPhone 11 and Samsung Galaxy S20 users, and may affect any iPhone newer than iPhone 6s and any Samsung Galaxy S series newer than Galaxy S9 if you have upgraded the OS on your phone. When your SatSleeve is connected to the satellite network please ensure the SatSleeve App is open in the foreground and the screen lock is disabled.
