How do I check how many minutes I have left on my prepaid card?

To verify the minutes remaining on your Prepaid card: Dial 2888 from your satellite phone (Free call)  OR Iridium now offers SMS Balance Check, providing the ability for customers using prepaid e-vouchers to send a balance inquiry via an SMS to 2888 in order to receive their current status for no charge.
MAXIMUM AGE LIMIT: Prepaid units are consumed on a "first-in first-out" basis. All prepaid units on rechargeable accounts have the Maximum Age Limit that limits the period of time during which the units can be used or rolled over. The Maximum age limit for Iridium prepaid vouchers is three (3) years from the date of the voucher reload. (Except for Global 3000- and 5000-min which have a four (4) year MAL). Any unused prepaid units that exceed their Maximum age limit are automatically expired by Iridium from the prepaid account on a daily basis.

Please Note: MENA cards show the balance based on usage within the defined geographic region of the Middle East North Africa. To determine the useable balance outside of this region please divide the reported balance by 2.5.


ONLINE BALANCE REQUEST FORM: Please note that we provide a free monthly online balance check.

    Simple online process. First time I've used it. Previously called Customer Support which is top notch. Highly recommend Satphone City.
