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.

Need to activate your airtime? You can do so here:

Request Airtime Activation

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 minutes to this plan will completely erase any remaining minutes you may have left. Minutes do not roll over on this plan. That being said, you can add minutes to the card if you’re not worried about erasing the ones you may have left. Simply call or email us requesting 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 minutes to your SIM card.

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 270-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 270 days since the end of your validity period, we will need to send you a new SIM card.
