This Satellite phone saved us on the Alcan Highway in British Columbia! We had a wheel come loose and almost fall off. We were stranded 200 miles from towing service and 100 miles from a cell phone tower. This phone SAVED US! Called towing!
Contact person made it easy to arrange for equipment and make date changes to the agreement. A simple, hassle-free experience. Makes my life easier. Included return shipping materials definitely contributed to the positive experience.
Sat phone worked well in the mountains. Always able to get reception. Service provided by Cellhire went as planned.
The satellite phone is perfect for hunting! Also Cellhire has been easy to work with through the years!
Your team member Shawn was very helpful when my trip got cancelled so I no longer needed the phone. She explained that it was not a problem and gave me the information I needed to return it.
The process to secure the phone & ease of return made this transaction so easy.
A human in the U.S. answered the phone when I called and then the product and delivery/packaging was exactly as promised by that human. If you try to go web-only or with an automated answering service, you will be diminishing your company.
My first time ever using a sat phone. No problems at all. Worked on the Kancamagus Highway in the white mountains of New Hampshire.
