contacting a satellite phone from a mobile phone

 

MATCH the SATELLITE PHONE NUMBER you wish to contact to the red numbers below 

 


SMS or CALLS to INMARSAT IsatPhone Pro phone numbers starting with 8707 only

 

Making calls to this satellite phone - BEWARE!!

Making calls to these phones is very expensive. As much as $20 per minute!
If you want people to contact your satellite phone, we suggest that they send you a
free SMS from our website as this places the message into the satellite phone network, bypassing our local carriers.


Texting from a mobile phone to a satellite phone is not guaranteed.
Further information can be found here.

 

Sending a SMS  / text message or calls to the Inmarsat network should be dialled using the following protocol from within Australia:

Dial 0011 (to get out of the Australian network and into the International network)

Then dial the Inmarsat voice phone number


EXAMPLE: If a friend from within Australia wants to call or text you, they

dial 00118707xxxxxxxx The 00 can be substituted with the + symbol. This is achieved by holding down the 0 key for a second or two.

 

A cheaper alternative is for people to send you a free text message and then you call

them back. They can do this via this link:
