Is a US Number Helpful?


Most satellite phones are kept off until a call is made in order to save battery strength. So, a US number has no benefit because incoming calls route to voice mail and additional airtime costs must be incurred to retrieve the message. Fortunately, there is a better way! Tell your friends to send a free text message to your satellite phone. Here are instructions. If your satellite phone is kept in a docking station ready to receive a call, an optional US number is a great idea.

GPS Tracking Features:


The Iridium GO! can be a powerful safety tool. The Iridium GO! app on your smart phone allows you to select a time interval for GPS position updates. Then identify the email address of the person that will be receiving the reports. These email reports will contain your latitude, longitude, altitude and the time your position report was sent. The GPS tracking reports are billed as SMS (short message service) messages.


Sending an S.O.S. from the Iridium GO!


If you have an emergency, a single button press will send an email alert that is tagged as an EMERGENCY and includes your GPS location. This can be done directly from the Iridium GO! without a smart device. An S.O.S. also can be sent using the Iridium GO! app on a smart device. An S.O.S. from the app can also start a voice call to an emergency number of your choice. How it works depends on how you configure it. You choose. Global Emergency Response Services or GEOS is included with your Iridium GO! at no additional cost. This is a tremendous safety feature, especially for people traveling in remote areas of the world. Before using GEOS, you must register online and configure the S.O.S. button to contact GEOS during an emergency.
