"Communication between myself and my husband and son ended up being a life saving experience. My husband fell during a big swell and sustained a concussion. He had to be life flighted off of the boat, which was over 100 miles off the coast. With the Mobell Satellite Phone, I was able to comfort my son, find out information and he could tell me exactly when the boat was coming back in to dock to drop him off. Luckily, my husband did not suffer any lasting injury. The phone served the purpose I entended it to have plus much more. We will never travel again out of cell phone range without renting a phone. We are traveling to Mexico in November and will rent another one from Mobell."
K.Manning

"The phone saved me from being absolutely stranded. I reached my destination, which was in a remote area of Costa Rica, only to find that the crew on the ship had gone on strike (no paychecks for 3 months) and disappeared a few hours earlier and there was no gas or food on the ship. The phone on the ship was broken. Mobell saved me as well as other people. There were 95 people who were stranded in a foreign country! I was the only one who had a phone. Thanks, Mobell!!!"
K Swett

"My buddies and I had a great ride thru Baja Mexico in Nov 2007. Unfortunately 250 miles South of the US border and in the middle of the desert my buddies engine completely failed. Fortunately we had a Mobell Sat phone and made the calls necessary to get us rescued. The next day we were drinking margaritas in Ensenada. Thx"
Steve Hess

Even simply having the phone at hand can provide valuable peace of mind for you and your loved ones:

"I am a volunteer for our state wildlife agency and was participating in a sample collection project on deer in far northern Arizona, near the Utah border. This area is extremely remote and cell phone reception is nonexistent. Even traffic is nonexistant! As a female traveling alone, I wanted some peace of mind that in the event of an emergency, I could contact help. While I never had to use the phone, it was a great feeling to know it was with me."
Victoria S
