Clarke Green, a volunteer Scout leader and operator of, gives a detailed and informative Iridium satellite rental review.

" has the clearest, least expensive rental agreements I have found (and I have tried a number of companies over the past 9 years of trips). A satellite phone retails for about $1,000, so the insurance is a good idea."

Why rent from Mobal

We use the world's only truly global satellite phone network

We realize how important it is that you can make calls on your satellite phone anywhere in the world. That’s why we rent only Iridium satellite phones.

We include FREE Fed-Ex return standard shipping

Many of our competitors charge in excess of $50 for standard return shipping. At Mobal, it's all included in the price of your rental. Always check the return shipping rate when comparing rental companies.


Many companies take large deposits that are held until the equipment is returned.


With access to our MyAccount capability, you can check your full, itemized usage.

All your satellite phone accessories are FREE

Many of our competitors will charge you for extra batteries, carry cases, chargers and other accessories. They entice you with low satellite phone rental costs, making it seem as if you're getting a great deal, but this cost usually excludes necessary accessories. We even set up voicemail for you so it is ready to use. Many companies charge a fee to set up voicemail.


At Mobal, we have 24-hour English-speaking customer support to help you wherever you are in the world. It gives you peace of mind while renting from us.


With your Mobal Satellite Phone, incoming calls are free; however, people calling an Iridium Satellite Phone may have to pay charges as high as $9 per minute. Two-stage dialing will lower the cost for people calling your Iridium phone; they only have to pay the cost of making a call to Arizona.

We offer you an All Risk Protection Plan

Mobal covers you if your phone is lost, stolen or damaged. It also offers up to $500 worth of airtime and gives you a free replacement phone in the USA. See our full terms for all the details.

Why you need a satellite phone

Check out this video from the guys at the “Gone Huntin'” cable show. They explain why they always carry a satellite phone when they go filming in the wilderness (and why they choose a satellite phone from Mobal).

And let us finish with this light-hearted video on the importance of traveling with a satellite phone.
