The Thuraya XT-LITE provides reliable satellite phone connectivity with unbeatable value. It is designed for cost-conscious users who need to stay securely connected, without compromising on a clear and uninterrupted connection. It is one of the only phones that offers dual GSM & satellite voice calling through one SIM card*. It is very easy-to-use. You can make phone calls and send SMS messages in satellite mode, whether you are crossing the desert, sailing at sea or climbing mountains.

The Thuraya XT-LITE comes with:

  • Thuraya XT-LITE satellite phone
  • Battery
  • Travel Charger (including 4 adaptors for EU, UK, AUS, China)
  • USB Cable
  • Quick-Start Info Sheet
  • User Manual in 13 languages
  • Thuraya NOVA SIM (excluding handset only option)

Calls and text messages in satellite mode Make calls and send SMS messages in satellite mode whenever there is no terrestrial network available. The advanced omni-directional antenna ensures uninterrupted communications, offering seamless walk-and-talk functionality for calls-on-the-go.

Long-lasting battery life Thuraya XT-LITE enables reliable communications with a long-lasting battery which provides up to six hours talk time and up to 80 hours standby time.

Ease of use Simply charge your phone and ensure that your SIM card is working. It’s that simple. You can then program the Thuraya XT-LITE to one of the 13 languages available (Simplified Chinese is available as a separate firmware). 

Supported by the most robust and powerful satellite network Thuraya’s satellite network is renowned for having the most reliable satellite coverage, including approximately 160 countries or two-thirds of the globe. The Thuraya XT-LITE enables you to receive a call notification even with the satellite antenna stowed, keeping you connected at all times.

Additional features include: Address book, alarms, calculator, calendar, call logs, conference calls, contact groups, speed dialing, stopwatch and world time.

*The XT-LITE / XT-PRO will only work in GSM mode with an international roaming enabled SIM supplied by an official Thuraya roaming partner, or a Thuraya Post-Paid SIM. GSM mode is not available on prepaid Thuraya SIM cards. The phone must be used outside with a clear line of sight to the sky to use the GSM mode.

Not all mobile networks allow you to send text messages to satellite phones and as a result text messaging can be unreliable. Please check with your provider or contact us for further information.
