Iridium phone numbers are international numbers that are often very expensive for the calling party to place.
In many cases, phone providers simply block international calls unless they have an international calling plan. Two-stage dialing allows for US- and Canadian-based callers to call a ‘local’ (Phoenix, Arizona) number that will connect you with any Iridium phone. The cost to make the call is placed on the Iridium subscriber.
To use Iridium two-stage dialing from any phone, dial +1 480 768 2500 and follow the automated instructions asking for the Iridium subscriber satellite phone number.
Currently the Iridium subscriber will be charged $1.50 per phone minute on our Iridium monthly plans, or 60 units per minute on a prepaid SIM.
