If you want your incoming calls to be reachable via peoplefone, you can order new phone numbers or port your current landline number to peoplefone.
Phone numbers are ordered / ported for at least 12 months and the costs depend on the number of phone numbers per block. A block of numbers is defined by consecutive numbers with the same prefix. In your peoplefone account, select the first phone number and the desired successive numbers will then be listed. If you want for example 3 completely different numbers, you need to order 3 blocs at CHF 5.- each.
You can always view your phone number subscription and the expiration date in your peoplefone account, and you will be reminded by e-mail 35 days before the expiration date that you can extend the number or click on the option of an automatic renewal when there are sufficient funds available.
If you would like to display your current phone number for outgoing calls via peoplefone, you can activate this free function directly in your peoplefone account. You have the following options for viewing:
If you have a PBX with "SIP TRUNK" and several phone numbers and you want to display a different number per user; you can directly program it on the PBX and we need to authorise "CLI Open" on your peoplefone account. Please fill in the confirmation (only in German or French available) and send it per scan or fax back to us.
peoplefone offers Swiss phone numbers of all prefixes of Switzerland. You can chose from the available list directly on your peoplefone account. The phone number is immediately active after the payment!
You can also order multiple phone numbers and lines by just adding more lines on your peoplefone account and ordering a new number block.
Costs are per amount of numbers that follow (paid yearly in advance). You cannot add more numbers to an already activated block.

The national phone numbers 058 cost the double of the table; e.g. 2-5 numbers cost CHF 20.- per month.
The 0800 / 0840 / 0844 / 0848 numbers have special costs: for 1 phone number: CHF 140.- of installation and CHF 40.- per month. Please note that each incoming call will be charged to the peoplefone account (e.g. calls from a landline with 0.03 / minute and from a mobile with 0.25 / minute).
All prices are in CHF incl. VAT.
If you also connect the incoming calls with peoplefone VoIP, thus saving up to 80% of the monthly connection fees, you can port your current fixed line number(s) to peoplefone.
With number porting all outgoing and incoming calls are done over the internet (VoIP). You therefore absolutely need an internet connection! (PLEASE NOTE: Should your internet contract be tied to a fixline phone number, you need to clarify the possibilities to keep the internet contract like for example the offer of Swisscom [email protected]).
The phone number contract will be terminated with the entry in the national porting system and your current landline phone number will be transfered to peoplefone. The porting documents have to be filled and signed by the owner of the number (Important: the name at the power of attorney has to be exactly the same as the owner of the number!). Inactive, expired or reserved numbers cannot be ported.
The number porting can only be done in Switzerland. The outporting of your number can be done anytime. Once the yearly fee is payed, it will not be reimbursed.
Please read through the porting documents (only available in German and French) carefully. For the porting of a number, you just need to fill in the porting documents (3 pages), sign and send them to us. One porting authority must be filled out for each number range.
peoplefone executes all porting activities on Tuesdays. However, the porting documents should arrive at peoplefone at least 15 days before the desired porting dates (always Monday evenings).
No later than one week before the porting date, you will receive our confirmation by email with an attached invoice.

|DDI / BusinessLine block of 10 - 100 numbers||CHF 380.-||CHF 15.- to 50.-|
Important: In the case of peoplefone customers with a business contract (postpaid customer), the one-off and monthly costs are invoiced in the monthly statements.
A DDI / BusinessLINE block consists of at least 10 numbers and cannot be separated. For the porting of a sub-part, the customer must initiate the separation of the areas before submitting the porting to his provider.
The porting or activation (new registration) of a 0800/0840/0844/0848 number costs CHF 140.- per order and the monthly costs of an 08XX number amounts to CHF 40.- per month. Incoming calls from the fixed network are charged at CHF 0.03 per minute and incoming calls from the mobile network at CHF 0.25 per minute.

Customers with 08XX numbers must complete a peoplefone business contract (postpaid account) and receive a monthly invoice, as the incoming calls are billed at the end of the month.
