Also Worldwide Local Phone Numbers Available – For All Iridium Phones From Any Iridium Provider

Argentine Republic, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Finland, Israel, Lithuania, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Slovak Republic, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the US.
All incoming calls to an Iridium satellite phone are free. However, the calling party will be paying expensive international calling rates if they’re even able to call an international number. Many phone providers simply block international calls if there’s no international plan in place.
As such, it shouldn’t be hard to see why adding a local number to a satellite phone is necessary – especially if the subscriber intends to receive calls from parties that may be potentially blocked with their phone provider.
All Iridium satellite phones have large, somewhat intimidating international numbers. They look like this: 011-881-772520732. Broken up, the 011 is the prefix for making an international call, the 881 is the ‘country code’ of all iridium satellite phones, and the actual phone number is the last 9 digits. Altogether, the entire phone number is an intimidating 15 digits long.
