    The service from Satmodo was outstanding. I would definitely rent from them again. As for the product and satellite service, I only received about 1/3 of the texts that were sent to me. This was in Wyoming with prolonged clear access to open sky and antenna up. So for that purpose, it wasn’t at all reliable.

    Satmodo was great to work with. The phone didn’t always find a satellite quickly. We rented the Iridium 9555 satellite phone. We were in glacier national park and there were some times that it didn’t work even with a clear shot at the sky. Overall I would get it again for the safety of communicating

    The satmodo service was great. The phone was sent very promptly and was easy to return. I give a 4 instead of a 5 because of the cost, which in total was quite a bit more than the $131.93 shown here. But I understood heading into it that the rental would be expensive, and I decided that having the phone for emergencies while I was off the grid was worth it. I would rent one Iridium 9555 again under similar circumstances.
