Texting via Garmin inReach
Incoming CallsDirect incoming calls are free for the satellite phone, but the caller will pay very high rates, around $5-$15/min. Alternately, you can call a 2-stage number, which is a US phone number based in Arizona. It is an automated system and at the prompt, you enter the 12 digit Iridium phone number and the system will forward the call. This way the caller is only billed for a call to Arizona, and you are billed for the incoming call on the satellite phone (either $1.75/min or deducted from your prepaid bundle).Direct incoming calls are to a US phone number so the caller is only paying for a US long distance call, if anything at all. Incoming calls are billed to the satellite phone (either $0.99/min or deducted from your prepaid bundle, they are included in the Unlimited Plan).Incoming texts can be received once the text conversation has been initiated by the inReach device.
