I think your closest dealer is in St. Martin; I used the official representative company there and cannot recommend them, in fact I let my SIM expire so that I could go elsewhere instead of renewing through them. Your best deal is to use a US company and have them FedEx/DHL/Mail the SIM to your location - the price differences are significant.

Please forgive the piggybacking on you request. Does anyone know if you have to be a US citizen to buy a card in the States. Rates for cards there seem much cheaper than Europe.

No, one does not need to be a U.S. Citizen to buy an Iridium SIM in the USA.

There must be a most cost-effective option for online purchasing of these sims..

Thanks for replies everyone. I´m going to "rent" a sim from a friend out here then post it back when I get to Europe.
