Free calls to PlanetSim from Skype and Viber
PlanetSim together with Skype and Viber have forged a unique partnership in order to provide free calls from Skype and Viber to PlanetSim numbers.
- To activate this feature for your PlanetSim, dial *146*711#. You will get a verification message that reads: “Skype-Viber calls are enabled. Incoming calls from Skype are charged”.
- To deactivate dial *146*710#. You will get a notification message that reads:”Skype-Viber calls are disabled. To enable please dial *146*711#
- To check the status dial *146*712#
When the feature is activated, Skype and Viber users can call your PlanetSim number for free using special dialing format +372800XXXXXXXX, where XXXXXXXX is a PlanetSim number without the prefix 372.
The call is free for the Skype and Viber user. The cost of an incoming Skype or Viber call for PlanetSim users is the incoming call rate in the host country plus 0.19 EUR per minute. In case the PlanetSim user is in a country with free incoming calls, the cost will be just 0.19 EUR per minute.
E.g. to call +37253204388 for free from Skype and Viber, you dial +37280053204388. For the Skype or Viber user the call is free. If the PlanetSim user is in Italy (free incoming calls) and accepts the Skype or Viber call, he pays just 0.19 EUR per minute.
- The incoming call from Skype or Viber usually comes from the number +372800, however there is a slight possibility of other numbers.
- When dialing on the Skype or Viber Dial Pad: if the user chooses the Estonian country code, he should dial 800XXXXXXXX because +372 is added automatically.
- If the user dials on the Skype or Viber Dial Pad without 800 (e.g. +37253204388), he will pay with Skype or Viber credit for a call to an Estonian mobile number. The PlanetSim user is charged only for the incoming call (in case the PlanetSim user is in a country with free incoming calls, the call is free for him). In this case, no activation is required for PlanetSim.
- If free calls to PlanetSim from Skype and Viber are not activated for a particular PlanetSim, when the Skype user dials 372800XXXXXXXX he will hear an automatic message: “The mobile phone is either switched off or out of the coverage area.”
