Quick Airtime FAQ
When Does My Validity Period Start?
The validity period for your airtime starts when you request activation of 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 request activation of your airtime in order to start using it.

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.
Can I Change Plans Mid-Term?
You can move from a lower-usage plan to a higher-usage plan without any additional fees. You will not need to reset your term period.
If you move from a higher-usage plan to a lower-usage plan you will not need to pay any additional fees, but your term period will reset.

Which Iridium Pilot Term Length Is Right For Me?
Iridium OpenPort airtime is very flexible for the needs of seasonal users. While traditional 12-month term lengths are available, you can also do 3-month terms.
How Do 12-Month Terms Work?
With a 12 month term, you pay a monthly access fee and then get billed for any additional usage you may have outside of your monthly allotment. With a Value Plan, this means you’ll be billed for any and all use. With a custom bundle plan, you might have something like 25 MB included in your monthly allotment, but if you go over 25 MB, you would be billed at the end of the month for the extra data or voice time that you use.
How Do 3 Month Terms Work?
3-month terms for seasonal Iridium Pilot use have you pay the 3 months of access fees up-front. You will still get billed for any additional usage you might have outside of your monthly allotment. For a Value Plan, this means that you’ll definitely get a bill (unless you simply don’t use the Pilot at all during that time). For something like a 25 MB plan, you may or may not get a bill for the entire time you’re on your 3-month term. It all depends on whether or not you go over your data and voice allotment.
