Marino Phonepal

FAQs / Help

1. What to do when in areas with intermittent or no satellite connection (always "No Network") if you are within the Smart Satellite Services coverage?

✓ Make sure that there are no obstructions near the antenna as specified in the installation guide. Please refer to the installation guide for more details. If problem persists, please contact the Customer Hotline or via email.

2. If I deem my terminal's power supply as defective, can I use another power source?

✓ It is not advisable to replace the terminal's power supply. Please contact us via email or call the Customer Hotline for assistance.

3. Do I still need to orient the antenna towards the satellite location?

✓ No, there is no need to adjust or fix the direction where the Active Omni-directional Antenna is pointing. The antenna is capable of receiving satellite signals in its fixed upright position as long as you are within the satellite coverage area and the antenna is free from any obstruction.
