The issue at hand that clients have been having with their Iridium email account is that whenever that email is used, even on terrestrial networks, it uses up their satellite data. Admittedly, this can be a costly issue since satellite data is not exactly on the cheap side and clients feel that they should not have to pay that price while connected to a terrestrial network. We completely agree, and also have an easy solution for you!
The Iridium GO has a “fetch” feature built into it which allows you to utilize your own third-party personal email address to get your emails that are sent to your “myiridium.net” email address. Essentially, what you are doing is setting up a HotMail or Yahoo account (or whatever third-party email you choose) and using that to get your “myiridium.net” emails instead of using Iridium’s email.
This effectively circumvents Iridium’s email and gets you your messages so you do not have to worry about those added charges; just simply hand out your third-party email address instead of Iridium’s. But beware, this is a terrestrial network issue. If you are outside the bounds of terrestrial networks you will be charged for data no matter what.
