Anywhere is the new everywhere. Mobile communications can expand frontiers, create opportunities, and establish critical lifelines. But only when it works.
From distant rigs to pitching decks, baking deserts to frozen ice packs, the Iridium 9555 satellite phone can handle any environment. It is small but determined, sleek but industrial grade, easy to use but powerful. It is every bit as rugged as our previous handsets - still resistant to water, dust and shock - but streamlined and packed with innovative new features.
The Iridium 9555 is the evolution of trusted, reliable mobile communications. And it is connected to the only truly global
mobile communications network. So anywhere on the planet you need to be, the Iridium 9555 is always connected and backed by unmatched network quality and world-class technical support.
The Iridium 9555 is not only the smallest phone Iridium has ever made, it's also the most powerful. With a significantly reduced footprint from our previous phone, more hand-friendly form factor, and aerodynamic features
such as an internally stowed antenna, this sleek handset is designed to easily go wherever your customers do -including through your distribution channels.

The Iridium 9555 is the ultimate in dependable mobile communications. It is a ruggedly built tool, not a toy. It won't play games, take pictures, or play MP3s. What it will do is work. Everywhere. Without exception. It is
engineered to withstand the world's toughest environments, so the world's toughest customers can depend on it as a critical lifeline whenever and wherever need takes them.
In addition to all the features you and your customers have come to expect from our trusted satellite phones, the Iridium 9555 also incorporates innovations such as an integrated speakerphone, improved SMS and email
messaging capabilities, and an upgraded Mini-USB data port. It continues the evolution of satellite phones, making communication more efficient and effective for end users.
The Iridium 9555 features a dramatically redesigned and amazingly intuitive user interface - making reliable communication more efficient than ever. We make it so easy, your customers can start making calls right out of
the box, skipping the traditional learning curve - and maybe even the need for a user manual.
