Notes on Iridium's 800 Calling Service : Get a North American phone number (Arizona-based) in addition to your satellite number when you order Iridium's 800 Calling Service, which makes it easier and cheaper for people to contact you. Callers can be charged as much as $5.00/minute by their local provider to call an Iridium satellite phone. With Iridium's 800 Calling Service, all you pay is a low, monthly service charge of $5.95 and an equally low per-minute rate for every call you receive on the North American phone number. Note that callers will be able to reach you directly by dialing either your standard Iridium phone number or your Iridium 1-800 number.
