Value-added services are chargeable information and entertainment services, such as weather info, competitions, ringtones or games. These can be ordered by SMS/MMS or online. The amounts are charged to your Swisscom mobile bill or deducted from your prepaid credit.
If you have used Swisscom Pay and/or billing via SMS/MMS, the purchases will be listed on your bill(opens in new tab) under the heading ‘Purchases’ and ‘Other services’.
The Money Laundering Act (MLA) prohibits the use of value-added services and Swisscom Pay for business mobile connections.
For persons under 16 years of age, access to value-added services (mobile payment and adult entertainment via SMS/MMS and Swisscom Pay) is automatically blocked due to statutory protection of minors requirements. The block is lifted when the person reaches their 16th birthday. Before that, the legal guardian can have mobile payment unblocked by Swisscom via 0800 800 800.
