Has anyone recently bought a Telstra satphone (Motorola 9505A) outright?

No contract, just the phone.

If so what price did you pay?

Also, a month or so ago on a Thread about Satphones someone mentioned that a shop near Garden City in Booragoon WA sells satphones but did not mention the name of the shop.

Any West Aussies know the name of that shop?

cheers

G'day Gone Bush,

I rang around in Adelaide yesterday for a price, it seems $1999.00 is the retail price for the full kit, as described in this link.

Cheers Adam.

That IS $US Dedabato, at $US1395, plus GST coming in so close to $A1600, may be a bit more.
Cheers,

I've mentioned this before on previous posts. Go and have a chat to your local Telstra Country Wide manager if you have one in the area. Most of them have a Sat phone which they loan out to community groups.

Tell them your going on a trip and will write it up on this site.

I have a good relationship with the fella in Frankston (Vic) and never had a problem. In fact they have never even charged me for the few calls I've made.

Regards

Kim
