*A SIM card issued by GMN is required for this Airtime Plan. If you are ordering New Service, a new SIM card MUST be sent to you. Order your new SIM card at: http://www.globalmarinenet.com/catalog/card-iridium-prepaid-africa-plan-p-455.html Failure to order a new SIM card when you are purchasing new service, will delay your order. Customers ordering only a SIM card without an airtime plan, for future loading of minutes, will be charged a nominal card fee of $10 plus shipping.
SPECIAL SAVINGS: GMN will waive the price of the SIM card when you purchase airtime minutes at the same time you place the SIM card order. Please note: it is still necessary to order the SIM card for a new service even though the fee is waived.
IMPORTANT: If you are recharging a current Active SIM card that you purchased from GMN, please add your SIM card number and/or your satellite telephone number to the Comments section during checkout. If you do not have an Active SIM card purchased from GMN, please see NEW SERVICE above.

Quick Airtime FAQ
When Does My Validity Period Start?
The validity period for your airtime starts when you call or email us to activate your airtime, and the activation goes through, not when you purchase the airtime. We ship SIM cards unactivated for security purposes, so you do need to call or email us to request activation before you can use your airtime.
How Long Does Activation Take?
Typically, activation takes only a matter of a couple of hours (or less), but sometimes there are delays in Iridium's system and activation can take up to 48 hours. Just to be on the safe side, we recommend requesting activation 48 hours prior to when you will actually need the airtime, just in case there are some delays in the system.
How Can I Add More Minutes To My Airtime or Extend My Validity Period?
Adding more minutes to your airtime is very easy. Simply call or email us requesting more minutes be added to your SIM card and, as long as we have a valid credit card on file for you, we can easily add more minutes to your SIM card. Extending your validity period can either be achieved by purchasing more minutes (which will extend all your minutes to the new expiration date) or purchasing a 30 Day Validity Extension which doesn't give you any more minutes, but will add an extra 30 days to your validity period.
If My Minutes Expire and I Need More Airtime, Do I Need a New SIM Card?
If you reach the end of your validity period, you will lose your minutes. You will have a 90-day grace period, however, where you can add more minutes to your SIM card without needing a new SIM card. If, however, it's been more than 90 days since the end of your validity period, we will need to send you a new SIM card.
