To make a call with the SPOT Global Phone, your phone must be activated and you must be outside, with a clear view of the sky.

To place a call:

  • Turn your SPOT Global Phone on 
  • The antenna must be rotated, extended and pointed straight up to the sky.
    • To raise the antenna, rotate it towards the sky and pull out the retractable portion until it is fully extended
    • To lower the antenna, carefully rotate it back towards the body of the phone. Push the retractable portion of the antenna back into the antenna base until it is fully stowed
  • The phone should be used outdoors where the entire sky is viewable and away from tall objects like building and trees
  • Dial “1” + area code + number + dial button (green handset)
    (No long distance charges apply for calls placed in Canada and US).
  • To end the call, press the red handset button
