Hi all.

Just looking to hire, short term for 6 weeks, a sim card to suit my Iridium 9505A Sat. Phone.

I have found one company on the internet who do, i.e. Landwide, but haven't been able to find any others. I just wanted to find a couple of extra card suppliers to compare hire rates etc.

I have shot a few enquiring emails off to possible suppliers but wonder if anyone has any recommendations.

If you have a Next G phone use that SIM.

True Blue,
If you dont have or dont want to use your next g sim the next best cheapest short term option is the Telstra $10 casual sim. When you get home cancel it and you've outlaid only $20, bargain. And to forget to add international roaming.

Wayne,
TR telecom $40 for 4 months is another one. No contract + a sim card and $10 credit. If you are just using it for emergencies it is a good system.

As others have said you can use a telstra next G sim enabled for international roaming. If you do either of these check to make sure the phone works first before you go.
