Want global smartphone access, no matter where you are in the world? Now you can, with the Iridium Go!

The Iridium Go! connects via the Iridium Satellite network –the only network that is truly worldwide and creates the first ever reliable global connection for voice and data communications on up to five smartphones or tablets.

Download our Iridium GO Fact Sheet here.

The Iridium Go!:

  • Works with your preferred mobile device
  • Avoids those dreaded roaming charges
  • Is compatible with Android and Apple systems via dedicated Apps downloadable from the Google Play Store and the iStore as appropriate
  • Connects up to 5 devices, so great for the travelling family and group expeditions as well as the lone traveller

Now you can make calls, send and receive texts and emails and keep in touch with friends and family via Twitter no matter where you are in the world. Please note that standard applications that require broadband network access are not supported for use with Iridium GO! Currently your connection will be limited to 2.4kbp/s so you won't be able to stream music or videos. 

How it Works


Simply flip up the integrated antenna and the battery-powered unit connects quickly and automatically to the Iridium LEO satellite constellation to create an anywhere Wi-Fi hotspot within approximately a 30.5-meter (100 foot) radius.


Iridium GO! supports a full range of global communications, including:

  • Voice calls
  • Email access
  • Applications 
  • Social networking
  • Photo sharing
  • SMS two-way
  • GPS tracking
  • SOS alert 


Iridium GO! is small enough to fit in your pocket and — like other Iridium devices — tough enough to withstand rain, sand, dust and rough use. It can easily be:

  • Carried or stowed in your backpack, or
  • Mounted in vehicles, aircraft and boats for mobile applications


Combining the best that both satellite and cellular phones offer, Iridium GO! is the first in a whole new category of personal satellite connectivity devices. It is also a powerful development platform optimized for Iridium partners to build applications.


Compatible with Apple® and Android™ operating systems and supported by affordable plans that keep voice and data costs reasonable, Iridium GO!:

Leverages and extends your existing trusted devices,

  • Allows connections to be shared among multiple users, and 
  • Eliminates roaming charges
