Quick start guide
This guide explains how to connect your IsatPhone to the Inmarsat
satellite (I-4), and how to make and receive a call. You must insert a
suitably provisioned SIM card and charge the battery before you start.
Note: Inmarsat recommends that you charge the battery overnight
before using your phone for the first time.
Connecting to the satellite
To connect your IsatPhone to the satellite:
1. Make sure you are in the I-4 satellite coverage area
(shown on the coverage map at the back of this guide).
Note your position relative to the satellite (the satellite is located in
the centre of the coverage area, as indicated on the coverage map);
this will help you to point the antenna.
2. Stand in an open area, free from obstructions such as buildings,
trees or mountains.

3. Turn on the IsatPhone by pressing and holding the NO (On/Off) key
for 3-5 seconds, until you hear a click and the screen is activated.
If prompted to enter a PIN, enter the PIN provided by your
service provider.
Note: The Inmarsat default PIN is 8888.
4. Raise the antenna and point it in the direction of the satellite,
using the coverage map for guidance.
To do this, angle the phone
antenna in the direction of the
satellite (the satellite is located
in the centre of the coverage
area, as indicated on the
coverage map).
If you are closer to the centre
of the coverage area than the
edge, point the antenna directly
upwards, as shown left:
If you are closer to the edge
of the coverage area than the
centre, angle the phone and
antenna at 45º towards the
satellite, as shown left:

The IsatPhone now searches for the satellite automatically.
As the search progresses, monitor the screen until the signal bars
indicate good signal strength (at least two bars), and the full circle
symbol displays .
Wait until SAT is displayed, as shown below
(this may take up to 2 minutes):
The IsatPhone is now ready to make and receive calls.
Note: If the SearchingSAT short screen displays for more than
two minutes, or you see any other screen during pointing,
refer to ‘Further guidance’ on page 07.
Tip: Inmarsat recommends you use the supplied handsfree unit
to make and receive calls. This makes it easier for you to keep
the antenna pointed in the direction of the satellite.

Making a call
To make a call:
• Use the international number format of 00, followed by
the country code, area code (without the leading zeros)
and telephone number.
• Press YES to initiate the call, and NO to end the call.
• Keep the antenna pointing towards the satellite during the call.
Receiving a call
• The screen must display the full circle symbol and SAT before you
can receive an incoming call.
• When you receive a call, the IsatPhone rings and the screen
displays Answer?
• Press YES to answer the call, and NO to end the call.
• Keep the antenna pointing towards the satellite during the call.
06
Walking and talking
If you walk and talk while on a call, the IsatPhone will retain the
signal, provided you keep the antenna pointing in the direction
of the satellite.
