Your Prepaid plan information is stored on a SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card, which can be inserted into any Iridium phone. Please refer to the Prepaid section for more details.

Please note there are specific rules regarding the expiration dates and adding minutes to a card, so please refer to our SIM Card Rules page for more details.

Monthly Plans - Click here for Iridium Monthly Plans

A Monthly Plan is a plan with which one may pay for airtime after it has actually been used. It is a monthly account, similar to a credit card charge account. As such, there are no expiration dates on Monthly plans, but are instead charged a monthly service fee to maintain service and phone number. Please refer to the Monthly Plans section for more details.

We offer 2 different Monthly plan options, with no minimum contract. See the link below for the differences.

Any of the Monthly plans can only be setup by emailing/faxing us a completed service agreement, which can be found at the bottom of the Monthly plan details.
