Simultaneous ringing

Your mobile phone rings at the same time as your fixed network phone with the Simultaneous ringing function. So you don’t miss any calls, even when you are out of the office. 

You can switch on the function in My Swisscom and enter the mobile phone number you want to ring at the same time as your fixed network telephone.

Please note:

You cannot activate "Simultaneous ringing" if you have already activated call forwarding on your phone (*21). "Simultaneous ringing" can be used for busy lines (*67) or when there is no answer, but not on the same number that you are using for forwarding calls.

Telephoning via Home App

With the Swisscom Home App you can configure your smartphone as an additional handset for fixed network telephony. In this way, you can also conveniently receive fixed network calls at home with your smartphone (active WLAN connection to the Internet box required).

Parallel calling

Parallel calling lets you make or take a call with your fixed network telephone when you are already on a call. You need:

  • a second fixed network telephone
  • One-off activation of the “call waiting” function in My Swisscom

Use the “Activate call waiting” link to access to My Swisscom and change from “Engaged tone” to “Dialling tone”. When you are already on a call you will then hear a blip (tapping) when you receive a second call. At the same time, an additional fixed network telephone rings and the caller hears the call tone.

If you want to activate parallel calling with your mobile phone, switch on the “call waiting” function via the settings on your device. Check the device instructions(opens in new tab) for details of how to configure the settings on your device. If your device is not listed in the selection, try using the instructions for an earlier or later model.

Costs

Call forwarding and simultaneous ringing services are free of charge. The caller only pays the charges to the number dialled. However you are charged if you:

  • divert a call to a number that is not free within your subscription (e.g. a mobile number). The call is then charged as if you had made the call yourself.
  • if call forwarding is active while you are abroad. The roaming tariff is also billed in this case. We would therefore recommend that you switch off call forwarding while travelling abroad or purchase a (mobile) data package.
