Request A Local Number For Your IsatPhone Satellite Phone

(typing 737 proves you are not a robot)  
Please write below what country and the closest city you would like a local number for your IsatPhone satellite phone. We'll let you know availability and setup your account.
Fill out the above form and we'll write back with phone number availability give you an online web portal access to manage your phone number and have it point to any satellite phone number at any time.

Why a Local Number for a Satellite Phone?
Your IsatPhone phone number is a long 14 or 15 digit international number that looks like 011870772626744, which for many is very confusing. Add to that most phone and cellular companies simply block international calls or charge exorbitant calling rates as high as $10 per minute, and it not hard to see why adding a local number to your satellite phone may be essential.

Local Numbers Anywhere
We offer all US Area Codes and many countries a local phone number that can be assigned to ANY satellite phone from ANY IsatPhone 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.

We issue a login and password to our local number service portal to allow any subscriber to create and manage their local number(s). Local number service is $10 a month and $3.44 a minute for calls made to that local number that connects to your IsatPhone. The caller never pays anything other than calling the local number since this service pays for the "international" call. You can still choose to give out your longer satellite phone number (where incoming calls are free to the subscriber), but the caller is burdened with making an international call.

The Advantages of Having Local Number Are:
►Have a 2nd "local" number for your satellite phone.
►Callers won't have trouble calling because their phone provider "blocks" international calls.
►Callers are not charged international rates for calling since they are calling a local number.
►A "local" satellite phone number is seen as a typical looking number and not intimidating.
►A web interface lets you point the local number to any satellite phone at any time.
►The web interface provides access to detailed call records instantly. May setup auto-reports.
►Management tools let you add any number of satellite phones to the account.
►You can use your cell phone number and receive calls on your smartphone (with call forwarding)

Powerful Web Interface
The online web portal gives you features to create local numbers, add one or more satellite phones, view usage, point the local number to another satellite phone, create an optional pin-code for number callers, start monthly invoice auto-reports, create a block-list, and a host of other tools to use from an online portal.
