Simple. Dependable. Affordable.
Thuraya XT- LITE is the world's most affordable satellite phone. With its low price and high quality, this reliable satellite phone is perfect for people who want to stay connected anywhere in the world.
An intuitive satellite phone, which lets users make phone calls and send SMS messages in satellite mode. If you're about to take off on the adventure of a life time, Thuraya's XT-LITE is the best option  for staying in touch with friends and family - at an affordable price.
The XT LITE is designed for cost-conscious consumers who need to stay securely connected, without sacrificing a clear and uninterrupted signal. It is one of only a few phones that offer dual GSM and satellite phone calls through one SIM card. And it's a snap to use. You can make calls and send SMS text messages in satellite mode, even if you're crossing the desert, sailing the seas or climbing a mountain. When there is no terrestrial network coverage, use satellite mode for calls and texts. The advanced omni directional antenna provides uninterrupted communications, providing walk-and-call functionality for seemless calls-on the go. Long-lasting battery power means that you can use your Thuraya XT-Lite for longer periods without needing to recharge it. It has a battery life of up to 6 hours when talking and up to 80 hours of standby time. It has additional features such as an address book, alarm clock, calculator, calendar, contact groups, conference calling, speed dialing, timer, and world time. If you want to be able to use both GSM and satellite network services, you need to buy a Thuraya post-pay SIM. However, if you'd rather use a Thuraya pre paid SIM, you'll need to buy a GSM SIM card to be able to access both GSM network services and satellite network services.
With Thuraya's unmatched satellite network, you will enjoy crystal clear communications and access to robust data connections at the most affordable prices. An unbeatable value, far surpassing any other product in the satellite communications market.
