Satellite Phone & BGAN Buy Back & Upgrade Program



NorthernAxcess Buy-Back and Upgrade Program

As one of our exclusive services we proudly offer the very popular Buy-Back, and Upgrade program. These programs assist in keeping the satellite industry fresh, with allowing others who haven't yet operated a satellite phone the chance to do so. Our Buy-Back and Upgrade Program is one of the best in the satellite industry. We put the highest value of cash or credit when acquiring your old satellite equipment through trade-up or purchase. We do this easily and quickly by means of our in house service and repair department technicians who evaluate your equipment and almost immediately put a value on it so that you can either apply it to your purchase of a newer satellite phone, or get a cash reimbursement. We can reimburse you in any way that makes you comfortable. 

Evaluation of your satellite phone or equipment of course is necessary. For those who are not able to make a personal visit and speak with our technicians one on one, we have an RMA form which will need to be filled out and sent in with your satellite phone so one of our satellite technicians can evaluate your equipment and get you reimbursed as quickly as possible. You may download the RMA form by clicking this button: rma-download-button-for-satphone-evaluation.png

Trade-in your Iridium Extreme 9575 or Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone and Get the NEW Iridium GO! or the Inmarsat IsatHub Wideye iSavi at a Reduced Price, or Free 

NorthernAxcess is offering to let anyone that owns the Iridium 9575 Extreme, or Iridium 9555 satellite phone in any condition to trade it in for the new Iridium GO!, as long as the satellite phone works, and the antenna, or LCD screen is not damaged.

Currently for the months of September, and October if you have an Iridium Extreme 9575 in good working, and physical condition, and have all acccessories normally included with the iridium 9575 satellite phone, then we will do a total swap. This means that we will give you a brand new Iridium GO with a trade in of your Iridium Extreme 9575 in good working, and physical condition, and you will not have to pay anything extra.

However, if your iridium Extreme is not in good physical condition, or is not working, then of course the trade-in will change, and instead of an even swap, then a credit for a fair price will be issued for your satellite phone, and then a difference can be paid for the purchase of the Iridium GO.

If you have an iridium 9555 in the same condition mentioned above for the iridium Extreme, Meaning Good working, and Physical condition, and all accessories, then we will offer the iridium GO to you for only the price of $350, but if the condition is not as mentioned then of course the price difference will be more to purchase the iridium GO.
