The 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 you can count on, whenever you need them.
By following these quick steps, you can ensure the operational status of your satellite devices, and be better prepared for a sudden emergency.
- Go outside
- Turn on your phone
- Extend the antenna toward the sky
- Wait for the green LED network indicator
- Dial 00 + country code + phone number
- Press the green button to start your call
The hurricane season has already begun, and everyone wants to be prepared; therefore, make sure you test your phone now!
*Calls from Iridium handsets will not be charged airtime.
Also, regular testing can ensure your satellite-enable devices are ready for anything and keep you prepared for the unexpected.
Tips to Stay Prepared
- Test your phone monthly
- Keep the battery charged
- Ensure SIM card is locked in place
- Protect your phone’s antenna
- Call in an unobstructed outdoor area
- Refer to your User Guide for proper use
Don’t forget, once you make a test call and you are ready to store your phone, take the battery out! When you leave the battery in a phone (even when it’s powered off), it will discharge more rapidly than if you leave it detached.
