FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
How do I activate my Simfonia app?
Easy! Go to the Apple Store or Google Play Store, search the Clouditalia Simfonia app and download it to your smartphone. All you have to do is sign up with your mobile number and email, and you’ll be ready to make your first trial call free of charge.
Do I need Internet or 3G/4G access to call?
You will need internet access to download the application from Apple Store and Google Play Store. Data connection will make it faster for you to dial a number, but it will not affect the quality of the call, which is higher than VoIP services, as the call is made on the regular telephone network with TDM quality.
Why does Simfonia ask for my mobile number?
The system requires your mobile number only to ensure that the person requesting the service is you, preventing anyone else to sign up with your number. This is why it sends you an SMS to confirm.
Does this service work from abroad?
Yes, it does if you use the App (on a smartphone with an Italian SIM). However, we don’t recommend using it as you may incur roaming charges from your provider. In some cases, roaming rates for calls received from abroad are quite low. In these cases, the App could be cheaper than normal phone calls. Check the roaming rates with your provider and compare them with the Simfonia prices.
Which phone cards are enabled?
You can use the Simfonia App by entering the PIN of any Edicard, Happiness Plus, BestCard, and Orchestra phone card, you can purchase from lottery retailers, SisalPay, and Lottomatica shops. The credit on the card will increase the App’s credit and will no longer be usable by other phones.
How the App changes after May 2019 update?
With the update it is no longer necessary to select the product with which you want to use the Simfonia App, but each PIN will increase the App’s telephone credit.
How do I manage my account from the website once I activate the App?
You can find the login credentials to access the Simfonia website in the “Info” section in the “Other” menu.

Of course! All you have to do is sign in to www.simfonia.com and access your account. This is where you can find your PIN. Call 800 066700 and follow the instructions to call both from landline and mobile.
Does the person receiving the call need to have a special device?
No, the person receiving your call can have any phone, landline or mobile.
Can I add a new number to my Simfonia phonebook?
Simfonia does not store the phonebook in another system. It simply accesses your contact list to allow you to call a number you have already stored. Therefore, to add a new contact, you will have to add it to your contact list first.
Does my device support the Simfonia App?
Will any service be charged to my SIM or bill?
No, we will not charge anything to your bill, as the calls are only deducted from your prepaid Simfonia credit. However, if you are abroad, you may incur roaming charges with your provider.
