  • No charge to receive calls, in most places in the world7. This is often a hidden cost with other service providers.
  • Your service is supplied with a 01471xxxxx number (similar to a typical mobile phone number). This means anyone in Australia can call your Telstra Mobile Satellite service by simply dialling your 01471xxxxx number. Other Iridium airtime solutions provide much longer, complicated numbers that can confuse users and make it harder to call your phone when it counts. With a Telstra postpaid service, its easy!
