Connect to the Satellite

IsatPhone 2 Quick Start Guide - Connect To Satellite

  • Stand outside in a place where there are no obstacles between you and the sky

  • Fully deploy the handset antenna and point it upwards

  • To register to the Inmarsat network, your handset must acquire a GPS fix and simultaneously find the Inmarsat network – this happens automatically

  • When the handset is registered to the network, the name Inmarsat is displayed beside the signal strength indicator

  • To send and receive calls, at least two indicator bars must be filled – if the signal strength is too low, on-screen instructions will help you to improve it

Note
GPS Fix

  • Before you make a call, your phone needs a GPS fix so it can be located by the satellite – this happens automatically, but if a new GPS fix is needed the red icon above will be displayed – place the phone in the open with a clear view of the sky until the icon disappears

Incoming Call Alerts

  • The handset has the capability to alert you to incoming calls and text messages when the antenna is stowed or the satellite signal reception is limited

  • Whenever you switch the handset on and deploy the antenna, the handset attempts to register to the network (see “Connect to the Satellite” above)

  • If successful, the screen displays “Ready for Service” and the two status LEDs change to green

  • After successful registration, you can stow the antenna

  • The status LEDs will change to amber to show that the handset is monitoring the network for incoming call alerts
