What to do if your Satellite Phone Is Water Damaged
bgan terminal repairs and diagnosis.jpg

When a satellite phone or BGAN terminal becomes water damaged it can be a serious event. So The first thing that must be done in this case is to remove the battery ASAP to prevent the shorting out of more electronic items on the board, and let the battery and everything dry out. Water is a major electric conductor, and starts the corrosion process around important circuits, so this is generally some of the main reasons for immediate, and future total failure, or damage. If the equipment can be sent to our repair centre ASAP then we can do a water damage treatment which has a 60% chance of taking care of certain satellite phone board damage by restoring its condition, removing unwanted water. This treatment is included in our Shield plan, although this service is never guaranteed.

This service can be bought at the time of purchase or checkout, or added to your satellite phone by sending it in for inspection. This Protection Service gives you the comfort of having your expensive equipment protected by us, and repaired in house with quick turn around times.

The fact is that the satellite phones and internet terminals are generally used in places and environments that are extreme in every sort of temperature and surrounding.
