Kostenlose Nachricht an ein Satellitentelefon senden

Send a free message to a Thuraya satellite phone

Commu­ni­cation with a satellite phone differs signif­i­cantly from conven­tional commu­ni­cation using landline or cell phones. If you want to reach someone using a satellite phone, the question arises whether the phone is switched on at that moment and has a connection to the satellite. Moreover, a call to a satellite phone is quite expensive. Therefore, we recommend sending a message to the user of the satellite phone with a request to call back.

Option 1:
Send a message via Thuraya website

Thuraya offers on its website the possi­bility to send a message to an Thuraya phone for free:
