Why a Local Number for a Satellite Phone?
Your Iridium satellite phone number is a 14 or 15 digit international number that looks like 011881772520732, which for many is very confusing... add to that most phone cellular companies simply block international calls or charge exorbitant calling rates as high as $10 per minute, it not hard to see why adding a local number to your satellite phone may be essential.

Local Numbers Anywhere
We offer most US Area Codes and many countries a local phone number that can be assigned to ANY satellite phone from ANY Iridium service provider. Calls made in the same country to this number are "local" so the caller never pays international rates and their calls are never blocked.

The cost is $10 usd a month and $1.49 a minute for calls made to the local number. Remember the caller never pays anything other than calling the local number, but they do pay if they call your satellite phone number direct.
