You Have Questions, Apollo Has Answers! Available 24/7 To Assist You @ +1 (844) 248-0123
Should I Choose Iridium GO Monthly or Iridium GO Prepaid Service?
Iridium GO 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 GO 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 GO 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.
Does Iridium GO Hotspot Work On The Ocean?
Yes, Iridium GO's 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 GO Be Hacked, Tracked or Spoofed?
It is very difficult for event he most advanced government agency to trace and spy on an Iridium satellite device. Eavesdropping on a satellite device 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 GO?
No, direct dialed incoming calls and text are free on any Iridium service plan you choose. However, Iridium GO's 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 GO Inside?
Iridium GO requires 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.
Iridium's service is the best, love my Iridium GO! I keep it with me on every trip. It's nice to have a little hub that I can just connect to with my smartphone, makes everything that much simpler. Also, I cannot say how valuable Apollo's support staff has been. Any issue I've had and there has been someone there to help that is understandable and knowledgeable.
Had a satellite phone for years and upgraded recently to the Iridium GO. Love the service! Also the go is very, very nice!! It's a beautiful thing not having to carry around an extra phone with me. With the go I just connect my cell phone and I'm all set. I can text, call, whatever I want. They made it so simple compared to my sat phone, highly recommended, especially for the tech challenged!!
Great service, Apollo has been great to work with!! I have had to rely on my 'GO' multiple times in the last week in particular and haven't had any issues whatsoever. In fact I've been up and running for a couple months now and haven't even scratched the surface of what I can do communications wise. I'm looking forward to upgrading soon so all my offices are covered; thanks to Apollo for all of their help!!
After spending a few summers out at my new cabin, I saw I really needed a way to communicate out there as well as power somehow. Went with an Iridium go since I can get connected to the Internet as well as others if I have company. It's so simple to use, you can't beat the service. Picked up an antenna with it so I can mount it inside; makes it so much simpler!
With my promotion at work I ended up really needing a way to communicate with something that has more of a reach than a smartphone. After looking at satellite phones I decided I really did not feel like carrying around yet another phone; then Apollo recommended the Iridium GO. I'm so happy with this thing and I don't have to be stuck with carrying around yet another phone; couldn't be happier with it. The service is the best and now I can talk to anyone where I want to with my GO and my smartphone!
Just got my second SIM card, love the service from Apollo! I was sort of forced by my job to get a satellite phone so I tried to find an alternative; it really works quite well. I'm very happy that I just use my smartphone and have a little hub to connect to while cell service is spotty.
Upgraded to an Iridium GO about two months ago and did away with my satellite phone. It's very handy to just have this sitting around in my office than a satellite phone. Also with this I can use wifi as well in case I need it. I love just using my smartphone it makes it all so simple!
Had a satellite phone a few years back and wanted something simpler so I picked up an Iridium GO once my job had me off the grid yet again. I really love the Iridium GO! It's very easy to use and the service through Apollo is excellent. You cannot beat their service staff either, very helpful!
Needed a way to communicate out at my job at the work site. I'm not very tech savvy so I kind of wanted to stay away from anything too difficult. I know my smartphone very well so Apollo told me about the Iridium GO. I've been up an going for about six months now and I couldn't be happier! The service is the best and thanks to Apollo for all of their help!
