To connect your Iridium GO to the Iridium satellite system, so you can make voice calls, send/ receive SMS & email, and download PredictWind weather forecasts, you need to ACTIVATE the SIM card.

Choosing the suitable airtime plan and activating the SIM card are done once you have the SIM card in hand.

In the first month after activation billing is pro-rated. For subsequent months the billing period begins from the 1st of the month to the final day of the month.
