I asked about this about 2 years ago. I hope there are some long term owners by now.

I am specifically interested in Iridium Go for usability and reception compared to other Iridium phone products.

Please no comparisons to other networks / phones etc, there are millions of threads on that LOL. I am only interested in a comparison for Iridium Go for those who have used or owned it.
Thanks

It isn't looking good Tony.

I am also interested to see if anyone has any feedback as I am looking into getting one as I am out of Mobile service often and need internet connection for work.

Cheers Kev

I can’t believe he has waited 2 years for somebody else to buy one.

You show a lack of comprehension. Read my post.
People who are critical of others who ask questions without bothering to read or understand them is what is killing forums like this.

Please advise what I failed to comprehend.
1. You asked 2 years ago, so I assume that you have waited 2 years.
2. You wanted to know a out usability & reception compared only to other Iridium phones.
3. You are not interested in hearing about other phones and/or networks.

I merely wondered why didn’t buy one & if you found it didn’t perform as advertised then simply return it as you are well entitled to do.

Hardly a forum killing statement!

Honestly, I really don't feel the need to justify my decisions, purchases or actions to people I've never even met.

Do you have any experience with the product in question, or not?

Actually I was waiting for a friend of mine to get back from an Outback trip, he returned at the weekend & I spoke with him last night. He doesn’t have a particularly good opinion of his new Go, poor voice call quality with long audio delays on the 6 or 7 times that he used it over a 7 week period, text messaging was good. He said he was glad he kept his 9505A.

I was under the impression there would have already been enough Iridium Go reviews and user opinions, that are readily available online, without requesting more feedback from "long term owners".

Long term owners are obviously going to be happy with their purchase - otherwise they would have shunted it to someone else, when they became disillusioned with the product.

One can only sift the available opinions - because that's all they are, when it comes to the crunch - and then make the decision to buy or not buy, based on your own needs and priorities.

Nearly everyone has a differing requirement for what they are looking for in a product.
Some people are happy with rubbish that I wouldn't give a second glance at.

The only way to gain a good "users opinion" is to examine the items specifications and features, and then buy the product yourself, if it suits, and see how it turns out in actual use.

There are many products that people buy that turn out completely different to the specs and features, when it comes to actual use.
One then has to decide whether the article was a poor choice, and decide to move it on - taking the loss, as experience well gained.

Cheers, Ron.

In other words Ron. You don't have a clue.

This forum sure is getting to be hard work.

Well, if this forum is such hard work for you, I'd suggest you go find a forum that suits your style of dismissive, one-liner arrogance.

Forums are full of people who cannot discuss things in a mature manner, and who seem to think the forum exists primarily for them to be able to manipulate it, to suit their personal arrogant requirements.

Think we might all be getting a bit out of sorts here guys. What about we put teddy back in the cot and play nicely? This forum can be a brilliant source of information and shared knowledge but lately I feel that some people get out of bed just to throw rocks at the sun.

I just hate the attitude some have and lack of respect when they post a thread and belittle someone.
Absolutely disgusting.
They should also be to blame for the sites lack of attracting fresh blood.

Grumpy old man showing a lack or respect for the fellow man.
Doesnt matter if youve never met someone or ever planning to
Just a simple lack of common respect
And its disgusting!
