Mobile subscriptions - FAQ
Why is a “FaceTime Registration” SMS, sent to an international number with the prefix +44, on my invoice?
FaceTime is an Apple application preinstalled on each iPhone. The application allows you to make video or audio calls using WiFi or mobile data. To configure and activate the service, an SMS is automatically sent by the iPhone to Apple’s servers (the SMS is sent to a number in England and is not visible to the consumer). International SMS, are billed at CHF 0.15 per SMS. As the activation is done each time you put the SIM card in the device, you may be charged for sending this SMS each time you insert your TalkTalk SIM card again in your iPhone.
I have a mobile subscription and mobile phone financing with TalkTalk, when can I cancel?
Mobile phone financing is tied to a mobile subscription. You can pay off the mobile phone at any time and then terminate the mobile subscription according to the cancellation terms of your contract.
