Iridium's 'Test Your Satellite Phone Week': May 26 - June 1, 2013.


Now in its seventh year, the annual Test Your Satellite Phone program was established by Iridium to support first responders, emergency workers, government agencies and anyone else who might be in a life-threatening situation with communications they can count on, whenever they need them. By taking a few quick steps to ensure the operational status of their satellite phone, users are better prepared for a sudden emergency.

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 phone. Join us and be prepared by regular testing of your satellite phones to ensure they will work when you need them most.

As a service to all satellite phone users, Iridium provides a dedicated test number to call and ensure your handset is working properly at all times. To test, turn on your phone. Call 1-480-752-5105*. 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, contact your Iridium service provider.

*Calls from Iridium handsets will not be charged airtime.
