Making Calls and Other Features

Voicemail – Call Forwarding – Call Holding – Call Waiting – Caller ID – Call History – Phonebook

The Iridium Extreme is about as easy to use as a typical cell phone. It is assigned an international number so it can make calls to any cellular or landline phone in the world for about $1.50 a minute. All calls it receives are free, but the calling party is charged their rate for calling a satellite phone (rates vary by provider).

The ‘call forwarding’ feature is handy when you want incoming calls to be diverted to your cell phone to circumvent higher satellite phone rates to the calling party (when you’re in cell range). Of course, the 9575 has all the other phone features you’ve come to expect. Voicemail is free with a prepaid service. and is an additional $10 per month on the usage only plan.
