Shared Prepaid FAQ

What is Shared Prepaid?

The Shared Prepaid service is a Duplex Service that allows you to use another subscriber’s Globalstar phone to call any destination or connect to the internet using the credit available on a Prepaid card or voucher. As opposed to Postpaid, Prepaid does not require any monthly or annual fee and there are no contractual obligations. You are free to purchase vouchers whenever you see fit.

How much does a Prepaid phone call cost?

The effective rate per minute depends on the Prepaid voucher purchased and the destination. Five Prepaid vouchers are available: 50, 100, 250, 500 and 1000 minutes. The suggested retail rate varies from 60 cents per minute to as low as 48 cents per minute for calls to any destination across the world except for calls to Other Satellite Networks. In such case, the cost per minute will be tenfold. In other words, 10 minutes will be discounted from your pool of minute for every minute of call.

How are calls to other Globalstar phones charged?
