Testing your Iridium Device

As we slowly come out of lockdown we are all looking to get back out there, whether that is going out sailing or enjoying some wild camping or going out on expeditions to far flung locations.

The ability to communicate is absolutely critical in an emergency and Iridium is pleased to be able to continue to offer satellite phone users the opportunity to test their satellite enabled devices free of charge. 

As a service to all satellite phone users, Iridium provides a dedicated test number to call and ensure your device is working properly at all times. To test,

  1. Turn on your phone.(You must have a current valid & activated SIM card installed)
  2. Call 1-480-752-5105*
  3. If your phone is working, you will hear a call completion confirmation message as well some quick tips on proper handset usage. If you discover that your phone is not operational, please contact us for further assistance.

*Calls from Iridium handsets and via Iridium Go will not be charged airtime.
