Post Pay Airtime Credit for Iridium Satellite Phones

How does Post Paid Airtime Credit work on a Satellite Phone?
Purchase your phone and you can choose to pay for your calls monthly in arrears. Options include 0 included minutes up to 150 included minutes per month. You are now not limited to taking a twelve month contract - you can now take a post-paid contact on a month to month basis if you want.

We find customers who are only going to use their satellite phone for a longer period of time (6 months upwards) and people who find themselves moving around different parts of the world regularly tend to find this option the best value for money.

Please note there is a monthly fee for this service as well as the charge per usage as follows.
