Is my Iridium 9555 waterproof?

The simple answer is no. Although iridium given a standard 12 month manufacturers warranty against parts and labour it doesn't however cover the phone being submerged in water.

Iridium 9555 satellite phone is very hardy, and used to our harsh conditions and includes rubber buttons, rubber surrounds and rubber grommets to keep out dust to make it water resistant. The definition being water resistant and not waterproof. 

So in answer to, is my iridium 9555 satellite phone waterproof if submerge, d we believe the water would get through and seep into the motherboard make the phone useless.

To get around this,  90+ percent of our clients at have purchased the 1200 Pelican case, starting at a price of just $129. The obvious thing about the Pelican case is that they are dustproof, waterproof and shockproof. So not only do they protect your investment but they also keep all the accessories in one place.

We would get 10 phone calls a day with the requirement for a new cigarette lighter charger, magnetic roof mount antenna or mains charger, or simply a USB cable that have gone missing from the packet. So this is where the Pelican case comes into its own, not only will it protect your investment being the satellite phone itself from the elements outside when you're using it but also it will maintain in people the accessories in one place.

In our experience it is often not the purchaser who is using the phone but an end user, and as such they may  not necessarily look after the investment of the satellite phone as you would do if you are the owner. To this end it is not unusual for us to see damage satellite phones have rolled off the front seat when having to brake hard or going over a pothole, so we highly recommend the Pelican case as a way of protecting their investment in the phone itself but also the accessories.

At $90 just to replace the cigarette lighter charger on its own,  you can see that by buying a Pelican case the time of purchasing phone can often be great accounting, not only would it protect the phone but in keeping the accessories together you will find that the requirement to replace accessories at nearly the same cost of the case itself becomes limited.
