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.
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.
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.
