Iridium has a huge amount of accessories available. However, the basic phone kit includes most of the most important ones.
The main optional accessories are
- The computer datakit (which consists of the RS232 adaptor and cables, and a software CD. But do please note that most new laptops don't have a serial port, and so you will need a "USB to serial adaptor")
- External antenna - Highly recommended if the phone is to be operated without clear line of sight to the sky.
- See our Do I need an external Iridium antenna link for some advice
