If you have an Iridium Satellite Handset without a connection, quite often it is more economical just to hire a SIM card and use your own phone. Short and Long term hire is available.
Satellite phone models suitable for SIM hire are the Iridium 9500, 9505, 9505A, 9555 and 9575.
If your satellite phone has not been used for a considerable time we recommend that you fully charge the handset, switch it on and test the battery life. This can be done with or without a SIM card.
