Iridium Satellite Phone Monthly Service Frequently Asked Questions
You Have Questions, Apollo Has Answers! Available 24/7 To Assist You @ +1 (844) 248-0123
Should I Choose Iridium Monthly or Iridium Prepaid Service?
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.
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.
Love my satellite phone, just renewed, wouldn't have it any other way or through any other company. The service has always been spot on and Apollo has the best support staff I've seen so far. There's always someone there to help and they are always understandable and professional. Very highly recommended, if you're looking for a company to stick with, look no further!!
Mostly used my satellite phone on trips but with a job change I found myself relying on it a lot more. Upgraded my plan this last time upon renewing, Apollo makes everything so simple. The service is excellent, I wouldn't go with any other company! Highly recommended!!
Just renewed, great service and support. I've never had any issues with my service and Apollo has always been there if I needed help and with an understanding individual to assist me as well; highly recommended!!
The family that received this item has two very disable young boys. They make multiple trips to Anchorage AK to see specialists and much of the trip from Seward to Anchorage has poor cell coverage and this satellite phone will assist in their health and safety on these trips.
Quick shipment and SIM activation, excellent functionality, flexible customer service; currently, I have nothing more to say.
Can't complain, my 9555 has very fast satellite acquisition. The service is very good, I've never had an issue.
Great help and very good experience. Will definitely buy from them every time.
The best service you can ask for
Got my satellite phone a couple weeks ago for my emergency pack and I'm very glad I did. Customer service was very helpful with getting me a device and getting it hooked up. My test call went well, from what I can tell if you follow the connection guidelines it goes pretty easily.
Love the service! I had some issues trying to get some form of communication while I travel and I ended up with a satellite phone. As I said I love the service and Apollo really helped me out a lot getting going.
Picking up a satellite phone was kind of a no-brainer for me with my job and the fact that I frequently travel just for fun. Getting everything going was nice and simple, thanks to Apollo customer support for all the help!
Missing my family gets a lot worse when my job sends me off the grid so I invested in a satellite phone just to give it a try. I'm happy to say I've been up and running for a couple months now and I'm very happy with the service. Thanks to customer support as well they really helped me with picking out a device and getting it connected.
Traveling a lot for my job leaves me off the grid a lot and I really got tired of my cell going out of service. So, I decided on a satellite phone and I'm really glad I did. The service is great and customer support through Apollo is the best I've seen. Now even if my cell gets spotty I just reach for my satellite phone and I don't have to worry about it!
I've been really fortunate through COVID so far at our property. I just never figured I would be out here with my family for this long so we decided on getting a satellite phone just in case. We've been up and going for a couple months now and the service and support from Apollo has been excellent!
I work for the military and like to keep in touch with my family back home as much as possible. This made me check out satellite phones as an option and I'm very happy I did! The service is great and now I can give my family a call back at home whenever I choose.
I really enjoy hunting and fishing but I started getting into places where my cell wouldn't work. I mean at all. lol So, my wife brought up getting a satellite phone and I didn't like the idea at first but then I almost had an accident while hunting. This changed my mind immediately. I've been up and running for a few months now and the service has been the best! Five stars to Apollo support as well for all the help getting started.
My love of travel has me on and off the grid quite often. It didn't take long before my cell signal going in and out became of some concern. I figured even just for emergencies I should have a satellite phone on me just in case. I've been up and going for a few months now and the service is excellent!
Leaving home is always tough for me but it got worse when I started ending up off the grid. Then I really couldn't keep in touch on a regular basis comfortably. My family and I decided that a satellite phone would be a good investment around this time and the service and support from Apollo has been invaluable! Now no matter where my job has me I can always keep in touch with my family.
COVID really scared my husband and I so we've been staying at our cabin which is out in the middle of nowhere really. We never intended on staying out here this long so we started looking at satellite phones and we found Apollo. They helped us out from the device to the plan that we needed and we were up and going in no time. Their service and support is great so thanks to them!!
I go overseas for work every month and it usually leaves me with a spotty cell signal at best depending on where I'm going. This prompted me to check out satellite phones as a solution, which led me to Apollo. Their support staff helped me out with everything from picking out a plan to which device I needed. The service is also top notch, haven't had any issues with it at all!
My job started leaving me on and off the grid and it really started getting annoying losing my cell signal over and over; then I found Apollo. Their service and support is the best I've seen and I don't have to worry about my cell signal going out anymore. If I'm anywhere remote I simply turn to my sat phone so I don't even have to worry about it.
My hunting trips up north leave me without cell service for days on end so I picked up a satellite phone to keep in touch with home. Apollo's support is really top notch and their service is right along with it. I have never had an issue connecting and once I used my sat phone a few times it became a breeze to operate!
If one thing this past year has has taught us is that being prepared is important. I'm very happy that we invested in a satellite phone and service through Apollo. The service is excellent and even when we are out of reach we can still keep in touch with everyone.
We've been waiting out COVID at our remote property and wow are we glad we decided on a satellite phone to keep in touch. We didn't think it would be this long but thankfully we have Apollo's support and service, which is excellent. They had us connected quickly and we have been easily able to keep in touch with everyone.
As a government contractor I spend a lot of time overseas and out of cell phone range. So, I purchased a satellite phone and I'm glad I did. It was a lot more affordable than I thought it would be and the tech has really come a long way. I can get a signal no matter where I am and can keep in touch with family, friends, and the office as well!
Bought a sat phone a few months back and I have to say the service has been flawless! After using my phone just only a few times I was pretty fluent with it and communicating easily. If you are in need of one and on the fence just pick one up; you won't be disappointed.
I take hunting trips every so often and this leaves me off the grid without a cell signal. After many discussions with my wife we decided on getting a satellite phone so we can keep in touch and also for emergencies as well. I'm very glad I did! The service is the best and Apollo has some very good customer support as well.
A work change has me on and off the grid all the time and it got to a point where I didn't feel safe without a connection to the outside world; so I got a satellite phone. First, Apollo's customer support is top notch. They had me up and going with exactly what I needed with ease and the service is really great as well! Now I don't have to worry about my cell anymore.
Decided on getting a satellite phone to go with my emergency kit and I'm glad I did. The service is excellent and if the last few months have taught me anything it's that having that communication backup is a must!
Love the service! Also, Apollo's customer support was very helpful. They helped me get a device and a plan in no time. In times like these it's nice to have a satellite phone even if it is just for emergencies. We're out at our cabin waiting out Covid so it was really a no-brainer for us.
Really liking the service! I had to get a satellite phone since my job has me on and off the grid all the time. It's nice to have something there for when my cell goes out even if just for emergencies.
