For those of you who are interested in testing the new Phone app on your android device. It is still in Beta but it worked for me!!

here is the quote of what it does from cablecom website.

"upc Phone App – your fixed network phone on the go, With the new upc Phone app you can make calls from wherever you happen to be as if you were at home.  With the upc Phone app from upc cablecom , you always have your fixed network phone with you, you don’t miss any calls and you can use your fixed line anytime"

Here is the app its self, just download and install https://www.dropbox.com/s/2woumgdl3v...lticountry.apk

Note: you will need to use the same login details used to loginto your online "My UPC" account Here

enjoy

Nope, someone found the app in the app store
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...icountry&hl=en but could not download due to geo tagging & "country specific" download limitation as it is the Dutch (NL) version but has Switzerland enabled.

Re: UPC Cablecom Phone App for Android devices

Would be nice if they could sort out a remote control app, that would let me record something from outside of my apartment.

I believe what you are looking for is Horizon go app (available for both apple and android devices) here is more information!

but you need the Horizon HD Recorder for the recording function to work!

Re: UPC Cablecom Phone App for Android devices

the reason this is not available in Switzerland is that they are testing it now. So I would not advise using it.

this will become a service and if you've been invited, you can be using a version they have authorised for use in Switzerland.

again - I would recommend against using it. It's not an official service - yet.

I don't think you can set a recording remotely though, using Horizon Go. You need to be on the same network as your box.

I guess you can use the Replay functionality of the box, but it is a really rubbish implementation.

upc Phone app – fixed network telephony for on the go

upccablecom is making fixed network telephony more attractive. Thanks to the free and easy to use upc Phone app, all fixed network telephony customers can now be contacted on their smartphones via their landline number while they are out and about and can also make calls with the app. Roaming or expensive call forwarding costs can thus be avoided. From 1 January 2015, all 1.4 million customers can benefit from the app

At the end of June, upc cablecomhad 466,100 phone customers. With the upc Phone app, the company is giving these customers the opportunity to use their fixed network phone while they are out and about. Using the app is simple: All customers need to do is download the iOS or Android app to their smartphone, register via the My UPC customer portal and they are ready to make and receive calls via WLAN or 3G/4G.



Never miss a call again

Thanks to the upc Phone app, all upccablecom fixed network telephony customers can now also be contacted on their smartphones and can make calls on the go at the same rates as from their fixed network phone. It makes no difference whether the person they are calling is a upccablecom customer and uses the app or not. As a result, upccablecom customers will never miss a call again and will not incur costs for diverting calls to their mobile phone.



Save on roaming and telephony costs

The conditions of the fixed network subscription also apply for the upc Phone app. So, for example, customers with upc Phone and the Phone Super subscription can make free calls to the Swiss fixed and mobile networks (up to 1,000 minutes) from within Switzerland and abroad, and can also make free calls to the fixed networks of 33 countries. It should be noted, however, that although the upc Phone app is free to use with WLAN, charges may be incurred with the mobile provider when using the app via 3G/4G, depending on the mobile subscription.



One telephone connection corresponds to four telephone lines with the app. This means that customers with the upc Phone app can be contacted on their fixed network phone and on up to three smartphones using the same number. And so the whole family can make calls with the same number at the same time.



The launch of the upc Phone app is, following the recent introduction of upccablecom’s mobile offer, the next step towards offering the consumer a more converged experience allowing them to stay connected at home and on the go.



Available for all customers from 2015

From 1 January 2015, upccablecom is significantly upgrading its HD Cable Connection in agreement with the price regulator. Because in addition to an Internet connection and a TV offer, fixed network telephony (Basic Phone) will also be included in the fee of CHF 29.95. The upcPhone app will be available free of charge for customers who have a Basic Phone connection from this date – that is a potential 1.4 million customers. Thanks to the app, all customers can also be contacted on their smartphones while they are out and about and abroad via their landline. Further information about the new HD Cable Connection from 1 January 2015 can be found at:upc-cablecom.ch/2015
