    I have an Isat Phone Pro running v. 3.0.4 firmware. I would like to begin using it after many years of disuse. I have tried to update the firmware unsuccessfully. Can you reccommend where I can have the necessary upgrades performed?

    • Emma says:

      Hi Greg, Thank you for your comment. I recommend contacting Inmarsat who should be able to offer you some advice on updating from firmware 3.0.4. Unfortunately we don’t have the necessary files from that far back. You can contact Inmarsat here or if you have the details of your supplier they may also be able to help. Hope this helps, Thanks.
