As a result of a Bakom directive (federal department of communication) Swisscom will decommission the 150 wake-up call number and will now provide the service on the number 0900 77. The number change will take place on 30 April 2001.
The 0900 77 service, which can be used with both fixed-line and mobile phones, guarantees you wake up on time. To order a wake-up call you just dial the 0900 77 number, 24 hours beforehand at the earliest, and the four-figure wake up time - you don´t have to wait for an answer. So, for example, if you want to wake up at 06.30 you dial 0900 77 0630. The service costs CHF 0.50 per wake-up call. The same price applies to fixed lines. There is a 0.30/minute surcharge with Natel® swiss, international and business (only when placing the order). The wake-up call service is not available with Natel® easy.
