Harmful noise.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signals
Your Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone is a low power radio transmitter and
receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also sends out radio frequency
(RF) signals. Your 9555 Satellite Phone is designed to comply with local
regulatory requirements in your country concerning the exposure of
human beings to RF frequency.
2: Safety
International agencies have set standards and recommendations for the
protection of public exposure to RF electromagnetic energy.
• International Commission on Non- Ionizing Radiation Protection
(ICNIRP)
• Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE)
• United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Radio
Frequency Exposure Guidelines
• National Radiological Protection Board of the United Kingdom
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI) IEEE. C95. 1-1992
• National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP).
Report 86
• Department of Health and Welfare Canada. Safety Code 6
The design of your phone complies with these standards when used as
described under “Phone Operation” on page 31.
This product is compliant with Industry Canada RSS-102 for RF Exposure.
Refer to “Specific Absorption Rate Data” on pages 4-5.
Specific Absorption Rate Data
This Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone meets international standards for exposure
to radio waves.
Your satellite phone is designed and manufactured not to exceed limits
for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy. These limits are part of
comprehensive guidelines and established permitted levels of RF energy
for the general population. The guidelines are based on standards that
were developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic
4
Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone User Manual
and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The guidelines include a
substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
The highest SAR level recorded from this product was 1.45 W/kg for a 1
g cube which was below the uncontrolled (i.e., general population) limit.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones
and at various positions, they all meet the governmental requirements for
safe exposure.
2: Safety
The exposure standard for mobile phones employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. Under the guidelines
for this model, the SAR limit is 1.6 W/kg. Tests for SAR were conducted
in accordance with the European Committee for Electrotechnical
Standardization (CENELEC) and FCC testing procedures using standard
operating positions with the phone transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined
at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR of the phone while
operating can be below the maximum value. Before a phone model is
available for sale to the public, it is tested to confirm compliance with
the guidelines. The tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g.,
at the ear and worn on the body) that conform to a uniform testing
methodology determined by an expert standards body.
PLEASE NOTE THAT MODIFICATIONS TO THIS PRODUCT MODEL COULD
CAUSE DIFFERENCES IN THE SAR VALUE FOR LATER PRODUCTS; IN ALL
CASES, PRODUCTS ARE DESIGNED TO BE WITHIN THE GUIDELINES.
Batteries
All batteries may cause serious injury or property damage, particularly if
handled improperly or used after damage.
Warning!
Improper treatment or use of batteries may present a danger of
fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard.
Make sure to follow all of the following safety guidelines:
• Do not disassemble, crush, puncture, shred or otherwise attempt to
change the form of the battery.
• Do not let the phone or battery come in contact with water.
Water can lead to corrosion of the phone’s circuits.
Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone User Manual

• Do not allow the battery to touch metal objects. Contact
with metal objects can cause the battery to heat and possibly
explode.
• Do not place your battery near a heat source. Excessive heat can
damage the phone or battery by causing it to swell, leak or malfunction.
Do not dry a wet or damp battery with an appliance or heat source,
such as a hair dryer or microwave oven. Do not leave your phone in an
automobile or other vehicle with high temperatures.
• Do not drop the battery or the phone because the impact can damage
them.
2: Safety
• Do not dispose of batteries in a fire, because they may
explode.
• Contact your service provider or Iridium if your phone or battery has
been damaged from dropping or high temperatures.
WARNING!
Use of non-Iridium batteries or chargers may present a risk
of fire, explosion, leakage or other hazard.
Important
Use only Iridium original products for safety and quality
assurance. Iridium’s warranty does not cover damage
caused by use of non-Iridium batteries.
Battery Charging
Batteries may be charged and discharged many times, but eventually they
wear out.
Important: Follow these guidelines when charging your battery:
• Keep the battery at room temperature. Never expose batteries to
temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 45°C (113°F) when charging.
• New batteries are not fully charged and may take more time to charge.
6
Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone User Manual
Battery Disposal
Proper battery disposal is not only important for safety but
also benefits the environment. Consumers should recycle
used batteries and telephones in accordance with applicable
national, state or local laws and regulations.
Under EU requirements, all electrical and electronic products
must be taken to separate collection at the end of their working
life and must not be disposed of as unsorted municipal waste.
Do not dispose of your battery in a fire.
Emergency Calling
2: Safety
CHECK WITH YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER FOR LOCAL EMERGENCY
NUMBERS (full international access code, country code, and phone
number) for all locations outside the United States and mainland Australia.
Iridium currently only supports in-country emergency call routing to 911
within the United States and to Triple Zero (000) or 112 within mainland
Australia. Outside of the United States and mainland Australia, calls to
emergency access numbers such as 999, are not able to be made on
the Iridium system. When placing a call to an emergency operator or
local public safety answering point, always verbally report your location
to assist first responders with indentifying your location to provide
assistance. Caller location identification is not automatically transmitted
on the Iridium system.
Iridium does not guarantee network availability at all times due to
situations where the network is unavailable due to satellite availability,
terrain, weather, or other conditions that may prevent an emergency call
from being placed.
EMERGENCY CALLS WITHIN THE UNITED STATES: Power on the 9555
Satellite Phone, extend the antenna towards the open sky, confirm proper
registration & signal strength on the display, dial 911 and press the green
send key. Verbally report the situation and your location to the operator
for assistance. The Iridium service does not provide enhanced 911 service
which automatically identifies the caller location.
EMERGENCY CALLS WITH MAINLAND AUSTRALIA: Power on the 9555
Satellite Phone, extend the antenna towards the open sky, confirm proper
registration & signal strength on display, dial Triple Zero (000) or 112
depending upon your service provider’s instructions, and press the green
send key. Verbally report the situation and your location to the operator

2: Safety
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized
antennas, modifications, or attachments could damage the phone and
may violate government regulations. When using remote mount antenna,
mount antenna at least 20 cm away from the user. Also when using a
remote mount antenna in order to reduce potential radio interference to
other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen such that
the equivalent isotropically radiated power (EIRP) is not more than that
permitted for successful communication.
Driving and Operation of Other Motor Vehicles
The use of any wireless device, including a satellite telephone, may cause
distraction. Discontinue a call if you cannot concentrate on driving. Check
the laws and regulations on the use of wireless telephones in the areas
where you drive. Always obey them. Many local governments prohibit the
use of mobile telephones while driving. Observe the following guidelines
when using your phone while driving:
• Give full attention to driving—driving safely is your first responsibility.
• Use hands-free phone operation, if available.
• Pull off the road and park safely before making or answering a call.
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted notices so require.

Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone User Manual
Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your phone OFF when
in a “blasting area” or in areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio.” Obey all
signs and instructions.
Potential Explosive Atmospheres
Turn your phone OFF and do not remove, install or charge your
battery when you are in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere. Obey all signs and instructions. Sparks from your
battery in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting
in bodily injury or even death.
2: Safety
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often but
not always clearly marked. They include, but are not limited to:
fueling areas such as gasoline stations; below deck on boats;
fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities; areas where fuel
odors are present (for example, if a gas/propane leak occurs in
an automobile or home); areas where the air contains chemicals
or particles, such as grain, dust, or metal powders; and any
other area where you normally would be advised to turn off
your vehicle engine.
Electronic Devices
Most electronic equipment is subject to interference from RF energy from
external sources if inadequately shielded. In some circumstances your
mobile device may cause interference with other devices. Turn off your
phone in any location where posted notices instruct you to do so.
For optimal performance and to be sure that exposure to RF energy does
not exceed guidelines set forth in the relevant standards (discussed in
“Exposure to Radio Frequency Signals” on page 4 and “Specific Absorption
Rate Data” on page 4), always follow the instructions and precautions.
Product Operation
If you wear the satellite phone on your body, always place it in an Iridium
leather case. Refer to www.iridium.com.
Using accessories not supplied by Iridium may cause your satellite phone
to exceed RF energy exposure guidelines.

Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in
a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with
the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference
to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning
the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Implantable Medical Devices
If you have an implantable medical device such as a pacemaker or
defibrillator, the Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends
that a minimum separation of six inches (6”) be maintained between a
handheld wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference
with the pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the
independent research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology
Research.
Persons with pacemakers:
• should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six inches from their
pacemaker when the phone is turned ON.
• should not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
10
Iridium 9555 Satellite Phone User Manual
• should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential
for interference.
• should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect
that interference is taking place.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In
the event of such interference, you may want to consult your hearing aid
manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Other Medical Devices
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted
in these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may
be using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
2: Safety
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer
of your device to determine if it is adequately shielded from external
RF energy. Consult your physician to determine compatibility with your
medical device.
Aircraft
Airline regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Check and
comply with the policy of your airline regarding the use of your phone
while the aircraft is on the ground.
Switch OFF your phone before boarding an aircraft.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded
electronic systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or
its representative regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the
manufacturer of any equipment that has been added to your vehicle.
Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. Do NOT place objects, including
installed or portable wireless equipment, in the area over the air bag or in
the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly
installed, serious injury could result.

Keep your phone and accessories away from children. These products are
not toys and may be hazardous to small children. For example:
• A choking hazard may exist for small, detachable parts.
• Improper use could result in loud sounds, causing hearing injury.
• Improperly handled batteries could over heat and cause a burn.
Glass Parts
2: Safety
Some parts of your satellite phone may be made of glass. This glass could
break if the product is dropped on a hard surface or receives a substantial
impact. If glass breaks do not touch or attempt to remove. Stop using the
phone until the glass is replaced by a qualified service center.
Extended Exposure to Loud Noise
Exposure to loud noise from any source for extended periods
of time may affect your hearing. The louder the volume sound
level, the less exposure is required to affect your hearing. To
protect your hearing:
• Limit the amount of time you use headsets or headphones at high
volume.
• Avoiding turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
• Turn the volume down if you cannot hear people speaking near you.
Seizures and Blackouts
Some people may be susceptible to epileptic seizures or blackouts when
exposed to flashing lights, such as when playing video games. If you or
your family members have a history of such seizures or blackouts, please
consult your physician before enabling a flashing lights feature on your
phone. Discontinue use or consult a physician if any of the following
symptoms occur: convulsion, eye or muscle twitching, loss of awareness,
involuntary movements or disorientation.
Repetitive Motion
When you repeatedly perform actions such as pressing keys or entering
finger-written characters, you may experience occasional discomfort
in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck or other parts of your body. If you
continue to have discomfort during or after such use, stop use and see a
physician.

to operate at a higher power level than otherwise needed.
6. Do not wear the phone on your body while making calls with the
headset accessory. Wearing the phone on the body can interfere
with proper phone operation, since the antenna requires a clear
unobstructed view of the sky to access the Iridium® satellite network.
7. Once you complete your call and are finished with the phone, return the
antenna to the center upright position and gently retract the antenna
before carrying or storing the phone between uses.
8. For backup, keep a written record of all important information stored on
your phone.

Predictive text is implemented on the 9555 Satellite Phone and affects the
following areas:
• Creating an SMS/Email
• Adding Notes to an existing Phonebook entry
• Entering the Name field for a Phonebook entry (LetterWise only)
Predictive text is not set on a new phone by default, it must be enabled. To
do so, start at the main screen and:
1. Press the Menu softkey
2. Select “Setup” (6 clicks down)
3. In the Setup menu, select “Language” (3 clicks down)
4. In the Language menu, select “Text entry”

language sensitivity, other than the fact that it provides standard Western
characters. To choose predictive text, select one of:
• English
• Français
Once you have made this change, all SMS entry and entry of contacts
incorporate Predictive Text capabilities specific to the selected language.
Once selected, select the “Back” option twice, then scroll up to “Messages”
to use Predictive Text entry for messaging. To change back to “Multi-Tap” in
the future, you need to adjust this setting.
Predictive text entry has the following modes:
7: Predictive Text Entry
• Español
• WordWise (Ww) which provides word prediction for users who like
dictionary-based methods
• LetterWise (Lw) for letter-by-letter prediction for situations where wordbased prediction doesn’t afford the flexibility that may be required in
some situations.
Special character entry has the following modes:
• Punctuation (#[email protected]) for entry of punctuation and special symbols
• Digit (123) for entry of numbers

Except as otherwise expressly provided, you shall have no right, and you
specifically agree not to:
(i) transfer, assign or sublicense your license rights to any other person
or entity (other than in compliance with any Iridium relicensing/
transfer policy then in force), or use the Software on unauthorized

to export controls under the laws and regulations of the United States
(U.S.). You shall comply with such laws and regulations governing export,

shall not make any copies or duplicates of any Software without the prior
written permission of Iridium.
U.S. Government End User Purchasers. The Software and
Documentation qualify as “commercial items,” as that term is defined
at Federal Acquisition Regulation (“FAR”) (48 C.F.R.) 2.101, consisting of
“commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software
documentation” as such terms are used in FAR 12.212. Consistent with
FAR 12.212 and DoD FAR Supp. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4, and
notwithstanding any other FAR or other contractual clause to the contrary
in any agreement into which this Limited Warranty may be incorporated,
you may provide to Government end user or Government end user will
acquire, as applicable, the Software and Documentation with only those
rights set forth in this Limited Warranty. Use of either the Software or
Documentation or both constitutes agreement by the Government that
the Software and Documentation are “commercial computer software”
and “commercial computer software documentation,” and constitutes
acceptance of the rights and restrictions herein.
