Thuraya Satellite phone experiences
Here's a bit of hands-on info about the first generation Thuraya satellite phone - the popular Huges HNS-7100. Have one on board since 2006 - has done it's job all these years.
But sometimes these phones show an error while making the first call. Here's the background and how to easily resolve it.

Unfortunately the Hughes HNS-7100 range is out of production. The newer more fashionable but less rugged SG-2520 and SG-2510 models came next but never reached the popularity of the HNS-7100 range.
Recently ruggedness is back at Thuraya with the Thuraya XT - resembling the HNS-7100
