When making Iridium-to-Iridium voice calls, calls are debited at half the rate of an Iridium-to-Landline call (Example: If a user were to exclusively make Iridium-to-Iridium calls, a 600-minute plan would actually produce 1000 minutes (2X the minutes) for the satellite user).
Unused minutes are forfeited upon expiration. Card is permanently deactivated 270 days after expiry if not recharged. Expiry dates are cumulative up to 2 years.
Outgoing SMS (i.e. text messaging) are debited in 20 second increments, for qualifying prepaid plans.
