Iridium GO Data Minutes are simply a dial-up connection to the Internet. When browsing or using E-Mail, your GO terminal will automatically connect to the Internet by dialing a phone number. Since it is a phone call to the Internet, it is billed on a per-minute basis. Also, since the GO can only make one call at a time, you can not both be on the Internet, and make a phone call at the same time. For new subscribers, we highly recommend using the Unlimited DATA Plan when initially starting GO service since you can be connected any length of time. Once acclimated to the GO, downgrade to a lower plan if you find that you are not using the service much.
