Simply put, your iPhone is useless for making contact when it’s beyond terrestrial cell sites. Not when it’s equipped with the Thuraya SatSleeve though. It transforms your smartphone into a satellite phone, meaning you can make/receive calls or text someone when you’re in some far-flung corner of the world. The case has a built-in battery as well so you get more talk time, plus the dedicated button lets you call a predetermined emergency number even when the iPhone is not attached. Thuraya has a solid satellite network that covers up to 140 countries, or roughly two-thirds of the planet. The High Penetration Alerting (HPA) capability also allows you to receive calls even if the antenna is retracted. $500.
