Thuraya XT Dual Pro Satellite Phone/ GSM

1800 USD 1685 USD / In stock.

Thuraya XT-DUAL is a dual mode phone that works either in GSM mode (900/1800/1900 MHz) or in Satellite mode.

Thuraya is a regional Satellite phone that operates in Europe, Africa, Middle East, Russia, Central Asia and parts of China.


This phone is discontinued and there is a limited supply left in the US. Large shipments may take longer, since they will be coming directly from Dubai.

With the Thuraya XT-DUAL you can simply switch between Satellite and GSM modes which gives you highest flexibility to find a network wherever you may go. Thuraya XT-DUAL operates efficiently when you are within the reach of GSM networks and when you move to a location with no GSM coverage you can simply switch to the robust Thuraya satellite network.

Thuraya XT-DUAL holds an IP64/IK03 ingress protection rating which means the phone is splash water, dust and shock proof and it provides the most advanced features on any satellite enabled handset. The GPS functionality allows waypoint navigation and an included tracking function enables you to automatically transmit your coordinates to monitor your location.

In addition, with the press of one button, the GPS Emergency Helper can send SMS messages with the current GPS coordinates to predefined numbers in case of an emergency. The Tracking and Emergency functions are important safety features that can be essential in emergency situations.

The phone also uses a battery saving technology to provide a long lasting talk time of up to 11 hours and standby time of up to 160 hours in GSM mode. The advanced outdoor color display allows easy readability even in bright sunlight.

The XT-DUAL contains a High-Penetration-Alerting (HPA) system which allows you to receive incoming calls even in satellite mode when the antenna is retracted. That means you can easily and comfortably put the phone into your pocket knowing that you can still be reached in satellite mode with the HPA system.

Other features and functionalities include: Internet Browser, Bluetooth, 2GB Micro SD, Media Center, Organizer, Java support, PC synchronization and many more. Please see the full list of features in the product feature section.
