Prepaid Plans (New SIM)

A Prepaid Plan is a plan with which one may select a package of minutes based on your expected usage and pay for them up-front. Prepaid packages vary in number of minutes and expiry period.  There are also regional plans for Africa, Canada/Alaska, South America, Australia/New Zealand, Middle East/North Africa. 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.

+ The first four digits of your phone number, 8816, is an international country assigned to satellite phones. A caller may place an international call to country 8816 followed by your eight digit phone number. However, many long distance carriers charge a very high per minute rate for calls to country code 8816, so check with your long distance carrier before giving out this phone number. We've heard of rates as much as $15/minute. Cell phone users may also have difficulty calling the international number if their cell service is not provisioned for international service. International long distance charges are paid by the caller when they dial your international number directly, and the call is free to the Iridium user.
Note: Units above are assuming you are within the specified region. Outgoing calls from outside of the region will not work.
