*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.
