Pivotel TEST Call Service
Know your satellite phone is working when you need it!
Pivotel’s FREE test call service allows you to make free calls to a test number from your Pivotel Satellite Phone on selected rate plans to check that your Pivotel satellite service is in good working order.
Note: Calls to 0406 32 TEST are billed at the standard satellite call to mobile rates on Iridium Classic Casual, Globalstar Casual, Thuraya Casual and Inmarsat IsatHub Casual Plans.
Your satellite phone is often your lifeline while you are outside mobile coverage areas so it is vital that the service is tested, charged and ready to use in the event of an emergency.
- As Pivotel satellite services do not require any complex dialling strings, you just dial the free test service in the same way as you would any normal Australian mobile number.
- If you perform this test as part of your safety routine before heading outside mobile coverage areas, you will be familiar with how simple using a Pivotel satellite phone is, so in the event of an emergency you can make a lifesaving call quickly and easily.
- If testing is built into a pre-check safety routine you will know if the battery needs charging before the device is needed for an emergency.
