Calling to VAS numbers

Calls and messages to VAS numbers will be mentioned under the heading of  'third party services' on your invoice. This amount is paid in full to the service provider. If you do not agree with the invoiced amount, you must lodge a complaint with the service provider directly, who can pay back the disputed amount. Your service provider will give you all the necessary information and draw up a specific invoice for the service.

If the maximum call time of 10 minutes is exceeded, 090x calls with a minute-based rate will be automatically disconnected. For all calls costing more than €1 per minute or per call, the service provider will play back a free message to customers reminding them of the maximum rate so that they can break the connection immediately without incurring any costs.

You can find an overview of the maximum rates per number range below.

Attention: Calls to these special (VAS) numbers, eg. 090x, 070, ... (except for 0800 numbers) are blocked. You can unblock this option in my edpnet after activation of your subscription.
