Also to note that due to the time it takes us for troubleshooting, diagnosing, and the repair of such satellite communication equipment we must put certain stocking, or holding regulations into effect.

Within smaller time periods NorthernAxcess at their discretion may continue the repair and append additional stocking , holding, and the amounts of each bench testing fee per device. All repairs are paid in advance after diagnosis is provided.

What to do if your Satellite Phone Is Water Damaged

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.

How to get your Satellite Phone Repaired Free with the NorthernAxcess Protection Shield

The NorthernAxcess Satellite Phone Product Protection Service(aka: Shield) is one of our signature services that we offer to our customers who do not want to have to worry about paying for replacement parts, or labor rates to perform a software upgrade, replace an antenna that was damaged, or an LCD screen that was cracked due to extreme weather environments or a fall, parts that suffered an electric shock, water damage, and a number of other possibilities. 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. So when things happen to the satellite equipment that you use as a tool, or a necessity,.. you do not have to worry about the high prices of part replacements and labor rates, or who will do the repair for you. Our NorthernAxcess Protection Shield takes the worry out of the way by making sure that your satellite phone or BGAN internet terminal gets repaired, working, maintenanced, and back in the field with a turn around time of between 5 and 7 days at most. The protection Shield currently covers all satellite phones, and can be also purchased separately under 'Services>Protection Plans', or search for the Protection Plan for your model satellite phone


All Shield customers can also take advantage of the 'Point-Of-Contact' service which is included with the plan. The Point-Of-Contact service allows our customers to always have an outside person to contact in the case they need a message relayed, an email sent, a phone call made, or a text message sent. Sometimes when you need to speak with someone that is not there, the satellite airtime prices, sms times can limit you from repeated calls. In this case we will make the call for you to make contact, and have them call you, get a message through, or send help. Emergency calls can also be made with location info.
