Which is the best plan for you?
There are two pay monthly airtime options available for your Iridium GO! Wi-Fi Hotspot. Read our comparison of the Iridium GO! Standard plans and Iridium GO! Flex plans below, to determine the best option for you.
All Iridium GO! Standard Plans have an activation fee of $25. This is required upon first activation. The Iridium GO! Flex Plan has no activation fee. However, there is an optional $50 activation fee for a 3 month minimum term plan rather than the 12.
*Please note if you choose to pay a $50 activation fee there is a 3 month minimum term. Minimum cost will be three months' access fee + $50 activation fee.
Both Iridium GO! Standard and Iridium Flex Plans have 3 months minimum term, when customers pay the $50 activation fee for the Iridium GO! Flex plan**.
At any point during your Iridium GO! Flex contract you can suspend your SIM and reduce monthly payments to only $5 per month***. Suspension is not an available option for customers on the Iridium GO! Standard plan.
Dedicated US Number
Customers signed up to the Iridium GO! Flex Plan will be assigned a dedicated US or UK phone number and a SIM card free of charge. This results in much lower calling charges, as calls to the handset will charge at the same rate as the network rate, rather than the Satellite Phone rate.
Customers on the Iridium GO! Standard plan have a $250 reactivation fee when their SIM card has been deactivated. If your Iridium GO! Flex Plan SIM becomes deactivated and you wish to use it again there is no reactivation fee. In fact, if you choose to use it at a later stage you will keep the same phone number and not have to pay to $250 reactivation fee - however standard contract charges do apply.
Monthly Service Allowance
The Iridium GO! Standard plans vary in terms of inclusive voice, data and SMS minutes. The monthly allowance included in the Iridium GO! Flex Plan extends beyond calls, to all services.
