Current High Bid $50 – Jon R
Bidding details and link at bottom of page.
As amazing as our cell phones are these days, there still remain many places in the world where they don’t work, because there’s no signal.
Unfortunately, these places are sometimes also the places where you most want to be sure of having reliable communications in case emergencies arise.
Enter the amazing satellite phone. A device only slightly larger than a regular cell phone, but which will work anywhere in the world (as long as you have a reasonably unobscured view of the open sky), because it communicates via overhead satellites rather than relying on nearby cell service towers.
Our friends at Blue Cosmo are one of the nation’s best sellers and renters of satellite phones, and they are offering a wonderful package you could use on your next adventure ‘off the beaten track’.
Here’s everything you’ll get :
- Up to two weeks rental (on one single rental transaction) of a premium Iridium 9555 satellite phone (if you need it longer, their normal rental rates would apply to the additional time)
- 50 minutes talk time (more time available at their normal rates)
- Auto/DC charger
- Additional battery
- Standard shipping within US and return label to send the phone to you and for you to return it back to them at the end of your rental
That’s everything you need for two weeks of peace of mind, whether you be at the North Pole, the South Pole, or just about anywhere in-between. This is a $330 rental package (ie while we urge you to bid up close to that price, please don’t bid over it!).
We wrote about satellite service a while ago, you might find the article interesting.
You are welcome to enjoy this rental any time between now and the end of 2014, subject only to a rental unit being available (and that is unlikely to be a problem, they have a very large inventory).
You may use this rental yourself or give it to a friend.
We ask that you agree not to request a return of your much appreciated contribution if you or your chosen designee(s) are unable to use this opportunity.
To bid, please send us an email stating your opening bid (higher than the current bid shown above, of course) and the maximum bid you would be prepared to go up to.
If someone outbids you, we’ll counter on your behalf in increments of about 5% of the current amount bid, or $5, whichever is the lower, until such time as either you regain the upper hand or your maximum bid has been exceeded by the other bidder.
If your maximum bid is exceeded and you lose your winning bidder status, we’ll email you so you have a chance to respond further.
