A satellite phone is a phone that uses satellites for communication (receiving and sending signals) instead of terrestrial lines. Ideally, these phones enable communication anywhere around the world irrespective of location whereas normal cell phones require proper terrestrial network coverage to enable communication.

Satphones can be handheld, fixed or portable and use satellites that can be stationary or obriting. The user requires line of sight to a satellite in the coverage are of the service provider. Services typically include two-way voice, low-speed data, SMS and fax.
