Can I use my Iridium phone to make emergency 9-1-1 calls?

All Iridium subscribers using Iridium voice service WITHIN the 50 United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands will have access to the emergency 9-1-1 call system.

Outside the United States and its territories, a 9-1-1 call will NOT transfer to the emergency call center. Your call will terminate to a switch message instructing you to hang-up and dial the emergency provider or your service provider directly.

We suggest a list of emergency and important numbers be created before traveling and kept handy at all times.
