The Easiest Way to Get a Local +1 Number on your Satellite Phone

Did you know?

80% of American cell phone users won’t pick up a call from an unknown number.


Satellite phones normally have long international numbers or complicated two-stage dialing systems, which is not useful when the recipient is far less likely to pick up a call from an unknown number.


Pivotel provides an easy solution to this with hassle-free +1 numbers on your satellite phone.

You’ll be able to make and receive calls just like your cell phone, and your number will be truly local - based on your address in the US, UK, or Canada.


And the best part - it’s automatically included in your plan purchase with no setup required.


Shop the most popular satellite plans for local +1 numbers for Iridium or Inmarsat.


With a local number on your satellite phone you can:

  • Make and receive calls just like your cell phone
  • Have others call you easily just like your cell phone
  • Send and receive text messages just like your cell phone
  • Get calls affordably Callers pay standard rates - often free if calling from the same country just like your cell phone, and incoming calls are free to you on most plans. Calls to other satphones can cost the caller $4-10/minute
  • Your calls won't be blocked from networks that blocks international calls
  • Call other Pivotel satphones affordably Other providers charge high fees to call from Iridium to Inmarsat and vice versa. With Pivotel, the rates are the same as any other local number - because they are local numbers


It’s also incredibly easy to keep your +1 phone number when your service isn’t in use. Simply deactivate your service and keep your Pivotel local number for just $8 a month. Reconnect your SIM to active service with no additional fee.
