- Plus 12 nautical miles into coastal waters.
- Comoros, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Libya, Rwanda, Sao Tome, Seychelles, Sudan, Swaziland & Togo are not covered in the MENA region.
- Due to the small geographical size and/or location of islands included in this list, calls may be interpreted by the system as originating from international waters and calls may be restricted. Therefore, the Africa rate or service availability is not guaranteed for these areas.
- U.S. government regulations forbid Iridium Satellite and/or its affiliates from offering equipment or providing the Iridium service in Iran, Sudan, or Syria, nor to any entity identified in the “Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons” list maintained by the US Office of Foreign Assets Control.
- The Iridium Africa voucher provides great rates per minute when used in the countries* shown.
Useful Information Regarding Service Plans:
- Voicemail is included.
- The easiest and most cost-effective way to receive calls to the Iridium phone is by using the Iridium special 2-stage service number, 1-408-768-2500. The caller will be prompted to enter the 12-digit Iridium number of your phone. The prepaid SIM card will deduct the equivalent of $1.75 per minute from your prepaid voucher balance and the caller pays only their standard long distance rate for a phone call to Arizona. By contrast, a direct dialed call to an Iridium phone from a traditional phone costs nothing for the Iridium user but the caller will be billed at a rate determined by their phone company (at an average cost of $5.00 – $7.00 per minute).
- The Iridium Short Message Service (SMS) is available via the internet for messages of up to 160 characters at a time. Have your friends and family go to the Apollo website and click on the Send SMS button. This service is free to the web sender and there is no charge to the Iridium user for receiving text messages. Outgoing messages from the Iridium phone are billed to the prepaid SIM card as a 30-second burn rate per text message.
