Iridium Satellite Phone Annual Service Frequently Asked Questions
You Have Questions, Apollo Has Answers! Available 24/7 To Assist You @ +1 (844) 248-0123
Should I Choose Iridium Annual or Iridium Prepaid Service?
Iridium Satellite Phone Annual 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.
What is the Cost for Calling Internationally from Iridium?
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. Average cost per minute on satellite phone networks is $1.50. But higher service plans of 100+ minutes monthly reduce this cost per minute to less than $1.00 per minute.
Do Satellite Phones Work On The Ocean?
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
Can My Iridium Satellite Phone Be Hacked, Tracked or Spoofed?
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.
Am I Charged For Incoming Calls and Text To My Iridium Satellite Phone?
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.
Am I Able To Use My Iridium Phone Inside?
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.
Got my whole staff setup on annual plans now, so much easier for us that way to just grab it all at the end of the year. The service has always been excellent and Apollo is very easy to work with; five stars, highly recommended!!
On my second year of service, renewed recently and am very happy with the service. We haven't seen any issues at all. I picked up a kit so I can use it in my office as well, works like a charm. After years of spotty cell service it's nice to not have any worries about keeping in touch, especially after the business opened it was definitely a needed addition to our comms. Thanks to Apollo support for all of their help, we had a bit of a learning curve with the docking station in my office and they were great; highly recommended!!
Love my Iridium 9555, the service has been excellent with it! I wasn't looking forward to having to get a satellite phone but after using the 9555 for a few minutes; it's actually pretty cool. They really made it pretty simple with this phone and the service is the best. I haven't seen any issues at all and Apollo is very easy to work with; highly recommended!!
Just grabbed my second SIM card, great support and service. After moving to Apollo I wouldn't go anywhere else. No matter when I call I get an understandable individual to help and I've never even seen a hiccup in the service; highly recommended!!
Got ahold of Apollo months ago and haven't looked back since, contacting them was simple and communication was easy and clear. I even had to call them from the field at one point (from my satellite phone nonetheless) for some help and their support staff was key in getting me back up and running again! Cannot thank Apollo enough, highly recommended!!
Shopped around for about a month and finally settled on an Iridium phone and plan. Ended up going with Apollo, which I'm very glad I did; they've been so helpful! The service is really great, especially where my cell doesn't work!! If I go anywhere that isn't local I just go ahead and take it with me just in case.
From what I've seen from some companies I like Apollo the best. Their service hasn't failed me yet and their support staff has been literally invaluable to my business. Thanks to Apollo and their staff for all of their help; highly recommended!!
I've been operating a new post for work and even on the way there I start to lose service for my smartphone. I (reluctantly at first) picked up a satellite phone and a SIM card to give it a try. I was very surprised by the service! It works so well! Now when working or heading out to my post I just reach for my sat phone instead.
Picked out my phone and went with an annual plan, looked the best to me. You can't beat the service, no matter where I'm at with work it works perfectly! Apollo also schooled me a bit since I was pretty ignorant of this stuff at first, so thanks for that as well! Highly recommended!!
Got my Iridium Extreme a month ago and am very happy with it as well as the service. It connects very quickly and the service is the best! Apollo has been very helpful as well throughout the whole process.
Grabbed a couple Iridium Extreme's for my crew and I'm very impressed. The service is the best! Apollo is very easy to work with and they had my devices up and communicating in no time. Now keeping in touch at the worksite is very simple, it is nice not having a connection that is sporadic all the time.
Apollo's very professional, been up and running for a few months now and the service can't be beat! Their support staff was very helpful as well, even helped me pick out the phone I needed. Decided on a 9555 for simplicity's sake and couldn't be happier with the service on it.
