*There is a small percentage of instances where the geographic restriction of making calls will extend or retract from the Home Zone Region listed above. Therefore, calls may be interpreted by the Iridium system as originating from outside the designated Home Zone Region and thus will be restricted from placing calls. Service availability is not guaranteed in these instances.
