Re: Swisscom start of inOne

We hung on to our old basic connection as long as we could but it's been force changed today. Cable changing is straightforward + instructions come in English as well as the usual languages. Only bugging thing is we have lost a phone. They have to be plugged directly into the router using a special adapter. No more phone upstairs & another one downstairs now. Will have to buy a new phone that works on Wifi. Can't see any point in buying a 2nd adaptor to plug the other old phone in & have 2 in the same room.

When we changed about 8 years ago to UPC digitl phone through the modem, I was able to disconnect the landline as it came into the house and insert the phone cable from the modem into a phone wall socket.

This gives us 6 extensions that work perfectly. Perhaps you can do the same with your existing phone wiring??

Same problem for us. Lost the phone and the internet yesterday, but I managed to sort the internet out in the afternoon. Hubby's working on getting/finding the cables that came with our current phones to see if we can use them. Frankly I don't mind a couple of days phoneless - means I don't get pestered by cold callers.

Got a siemens phone that contains two cable-less phones, one is the base station, the other connected to that one (don't even know what technique, LOL,) with it's own charge base.
When I changed to cablecom (internet phone) I plugged the base station into the modem, the other one upstairs works fine. Lost no phones.

What she said, if you have a DECT base then you can carry on as normal. Personally we gave up the Swisscom landline years back and went pure IP tel, meaning the landline can also be picked up on mobiles.

Re: Swisscom start of inOne

Does it come with some battery backup or in case of electricity outage one cannot dial an emergency number?

Re: Swisscom start of inOne

Sorted. The non-set Panasonic had the right cable so just changed it from that phone to the 3-setter and those now work perfectly.

Re: Swisscom start of inOne

Downside to all this digitisation - we had a power cut on Saturday. Hubby had decided to go out and I couldn't phone him to let him know. No power, no internet, no phone. Which begs the question - if I lose my internet connection how can I ring Swisscom to get their help in sorting it out since everything now goes through the router?

Re: Swisscom start of inOne

Well, Swisscom would give me this for free for the rest of my life (or the rest of my time I live in this area) as they can't deliver!

upc may be a pain in the arse in many ways but at least they do deliver to what Swisscom considers the boondocks (which are official parts of major cities, btw.)

Re: Swisscom start of inOne

In the settings in customer account you can give them another alternative number in the event of no Internet . I have done this myself

Re: Swisscom start of inOne

That assumes you have an alternate number. I have the Swisscom landline and that's it. Hubby has a mobile which he rarely uses (God the money wasted on that over the years!), but if he's at work 75kms away that doesn't do me any good now does it?

Re: Swisscom start of inOne

Unless prepaid means I put 10 francs on it and it lasts FOREVER forget it. As far as I know most prepaid these days require a monthly fee/top up just like the rest.

I neither need nor want a mobile phone. The landline works for the few people I ever call (assuming we don't have a power cut of course ). So why waste more money on yet another that isn't used. Nope, not going there.

And yes, living in the last century - I've done alright by it for the last 65 years so why change now?

Re: Swisscom start of inOne

yes it lasts more or less forever. No top up!You maybe have to make one call a year for the sim to stay active. What more do you want!
