I have been using this for almost three years on my Samsung S20, and Poco X4. It connects to the WiFi signal of the Satsleeve hot-spot in a few seconds. For the sake of clarity this can not morph an ordinary cellphone into a free Satcom device (if only!), but it enables you to place the Satcom hot-spot in good Thuraya coverage, and use the connected cellphone inside the building within WiFi range. Wonderful app, device, and Satcom network, but as all sat neteorks, calls & SMS are expensive.

It works very well on some phones and some versions of Android. When it works it's very good. So far it works on a Motorola Moto X Play (Android 6.0.1), a Google Pixel (Android 9), but not on a OnePlus 6T (Android 9) or a Motorola Moto X Play (Android 7.1.1). The problem is that the app just keeps continuously restarting. I'm seeking technical support from Thuraya about this. Otherwise its great.

Calls work out of the box on OnePlus 6 running Android 10. GmPRS requires that you configure your phone to use device MAC instead of random MAC in settings for the WiFi network on smartphone. Failing to do so results in "Service option not supported" and failure to connect to GmPRS. The app also still works with Android application-level firewalls such as NetGuard. This allows you to save on data costs.
