Various plans require lengthy reading of course.
How much usage do you expect?
When you say you need to talk for work, is voice clarity important?
For Bahamas, you can pretty much use any of the 3 you listed. The 9555/9575 will work great but if clear voice is very important, you might want to look at GlobalStar. Plus GlobalStar is less expensive. You can get a free phone
and unlimited minutes for $99/month currently.
(Note that the phones are not new, but they have a warranty, etc).
Globalstar coverage should be good in the Bahamas, but globally they have gaps, which is where Iridium shines.
