The Thuraya SatSleeve Samsung Galaxy S5 Adapter is a new attachment for the existing Thuraya SatSleeve, making it compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S5. The Thuraya SatSleeve is a world first in satellite add-ons, transforming an Samsung Galaxy S5 into a satellite phone, able to send and receive SMS messages and make calls using the Thuraya network, which covers 2/3rds of the planet. Simply pair a compatible Samsung Galaxy S5 with the device once and it will pair itself automatically each subsequent time it is docked. Additionally, the SatSleeve extends the battery life of any docked Samsung Galaxy, making it suitable for longer term use. When not paired with an Samsung Galaxy S5, the SatSleeve unit is still capable of receiving calls, thanks to the built-in microphone and speakers, alerting users to incoming calls via vibration. On its own it is also able to call a pre-defined emergency contact. Please note that not all mobile networks allow you to send text messages to satellite phones. Please check with your provider.
You MUST have the Android Galaxy S4 SatSleeve, when you purhcase your Galaxy S5 adaptor.
