    IRIDIUM PREPAID PLANS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    You Have Questions, Apollo Has Answers! Available 24/7 To Assist You @ +1 (844) 248-0123

     Q: 
    Should I Choose Iridium Monthly or Iridium Prepaid Service?
     A: Iridium Satellite Phone Monthly Airtime Service Plans offer the benefit of uninterrupted service, overage on minutes, pay as you go plans, USA and International local phone numbers, rollover minutes, unlimited Iridium to Iridium calling and more.

    Iridium Prepaid Plans are more expensive, have a limited amount of minutes, no allowed overage (service will just cut out), no USA or local phone numbers, and minutes can be rolled over only if a new prepaid plan is purchased before the old SIM voucher expires. Monthly service is always recommended for Iridium satellite phones.
     Q: What is the Cost for Calling Internationally from Iridium?
     A: Iridium satellite phones do not have roaming costs. You are able to make calls anywhere in the world to any cellular or landline at the same flat rate. Unit burn rates are different depending on SIM voucher type.
     Q: Do Satellite Phones Work On The Ocean?
     A: Yes, Iridium satellite phones have excellent coverage on the ocean and anywhere else in the world you have a view of the sky. We sell antenna solutions that will make your satellite devices a more convenient solution for your vessel
     Q: Can My Iridium Satellite Phone Be Hacked, Tracked or Spoofed?
     A: It is very difficult for event he most advanced government agency to trace and spy on an Iridium satellite phone. Eavesdropping on a satellite phone is virtually impossible since the signal travels vertically towards the sky. They would have to have an airplane full of equipment inline of sight between you and the satellite. However, they would still have to decrypt the signal which is encoded with up-to 256 Bit AES Encryption, the same as the DOD uses for their own communications.

    Compared to your cell phones where the signal travels horizontally towards the cellular towers and through this transmission your signal is able to be intercepted and there is no encryption.
     Q: Am I Charged For Incoming Calls and Text To My Iridium Satellite Phone?
     A: No, direct dialed incoming calls and text are free on any Iridium service plan you choose. However, Iridium satellite phones are international phone numbers so the caller will have to check with their landline or cellular provider on the cost of calling an Iridium phone.
     Q: Am I Able To Use My Iridium Phone Inside?
     A: Iridium satellite phones require a clear line of sight with satellites. At anytime there are 1 to 8 satellites in range of your phone, depending on where you are in the world.

    We offer Docking Stations and Antenna solutions if you do need to have satellite service inside your building, vessel, aircraft or mine.
