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.
Note: In order for us to successfully activate your airtime, we need a completed Iridium OpenPort Contract.
If My Plan Expire and I Need More Airtime, Do I Need a New SIM Card?
You will have a 90-day grace period after the expiration of your plan where you can add another plan 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.
