Satellite phone rental

Does anyone know where to rent a sat phone in Asia? Iridium and ACes cover the region but i am having a hard time finding a company that rents.

We rented an Iridium phone from Outfitter Satellite for 6 weeks two years ago. They are based in Tennesee, USA, but I think they will ship anywhere.

Thanks. I sent an email to the above, but so far no response. Mainly they all seem to want a pretty hefty deposit. I also am on to another company in Asia that runs the ACes network out here.
