  • Permanent CLIR - “Hide'' your number for all the calls you make.

If the recipient is unreachable for more than 72 hours the message will be permanently deleted.

160 characters per SMS may make you feel that it is difficult to express yourself…
Here are a few tips on how to use punctuation marks and abbreviations that can help you make your short messages fun click here.

Service centre

If you cannot send a text message, then make sure that the number at the service centre option in your mobile´s Messages menu is +35799700000.

Premium SMS

SMS services

There are two types of SMS services available:

1. Services for which the subscriber is charged when sending the message.

The subscriber sends a message to a specific code (Short code) to obtain the desired information. Every time the subscriber sends a message to the specific short code s/he is being charged.

2. Services for which the subscriber is charged when receiving the message (Subscription services).

The subscriber activates the service and s/he is being charged for the messages s/he receives.

Activation can be done with one of the following ways:

  • via SMS: the registration is completed when the subscriber sends a confirmation message to the relevant short code.
  • through the website of the company: the registration is completed when the subscriber enters the PIN code in the relevant website.

Important information:

  • Do not enter your mobile number on a web site, without having first carefully read the terms and conditions of the service. Advertisements that communicate free offers or participation to contests, may result to a subscription.
  • Read carefully all the terms of the advertisement so to learn if it is a subscription service or a service that is completed in more than 1 SMS, etc.
  • A common model of SMS service is the subscription service for which you may pay per week, in order to receive wallpapers, or to enjoy lower prices for ringtones. The subscription models may vary per Provider.
  • There are services for which you will be charged either when sending a message or when receiving the message. The second case concerns the subscription services. So, there are cases that when you register in a subscription service, you will be charged upon receipt of the message. In any case the cost communicated in the advertisement is the cost that the subscriber will be charged, regardless whether the mobile operator charges the incoming or outgoing SMS.

Barring services

The barring facility is an access control mechanism to content services, offered via cybee or via the Third Party Premium Messaging service, available to Cytamobile-Vodafone customers.

It is available to all Cytamobile-Vodafone customers (pay monthly plans and soeasy).

The barring facility allows Cytamobile-Vodafone customers to:

  1. Block and Unblock all four-digit numbers (1000-9999).
  2. Block and Unblock a range of numbers (6000-6999).

Barring is offered for free.
A charge of €1 plus VAT is applied for either unblocking:

  • all four-digit numbers or
  • each range of numbers

Code of conduct

Within the self-regulatory framework of the mobile telecommunications sector and with the purpose to actively participate in the proper use of value added services by the customers that these services are addressed to (for example content services, videos, MMS), the telecommunications companies Cyta and MTN have jointly signed the “The Cyprus mobile operators Code of Practice for the responsible and secure use of mobile services”, which concerns mainly adult content services.

Cyta and MTN continue to work on the further improvement of this Code of Conduct, taking into consideration the related industry developments in the European market. Within this framework, Cyta and other European mobile telecommunications and content provider companies, with the intermediation of the European Commission, signed on February 2007, a European ”Memorandum for safer mobile use by children and young teenagers”. Within the framework of this agreement, the telecommunications companies of Cyprus that operate mobile services have incorporated the European Memorandum to the existing local Code.

Monthly Usage Limit

The Monthly Usage Limit service provides you with the ability to set a monthly limit of use for your mobile pay monthly plan so that you can have better control of your bill.

Description Charges Charging Period
CONNECTION FEE FREE OF CHARGE -
SUBSCRIPTION FEE FREE OF CHARGE -
RECONNECTION FEE € 2,03 ONCE OFF

Note: Prices include VAT.

Provision/ Usage Instructions

The first time you request the service you must visit one of our cytashops in person, since the signing of an application form is required.

The Monthly Usage Limit may be programmed in one of the following ways:

  • receive a warning SMS with the limit of your bill,
  • receive a warning SMS and once the limit of your bill is reached your pay monthly plan is temporarily disconnected (not valid for RED plan customers),
  • once the limit of your bill is reached your pay monthly plan is temporarily disconnected without any warning messages (not valid for RED plan customers).

To reconnect your pay monthly plan after a temporary disconnection, you will be charged with a reconnection fee.

Note:
Since the processing of call data for billing purposes is carried out periodically and not in real time, there is a possibility that the amount of your monthly bill may exceed the pre-set user limit. Expensive calls to premium numbers, sending/receiving of text messages to/from 4-digit numbers may put you over your limit and with this in mind we recommend that for additional protection you make use of the barring and coded barring services. Also, the Monthly User Limit does not usually include all charges incurred by the use of mobile phones when abroad, due to the delay by foreign networks in sending international roaming call information to Cyta for the relevant charges to be levied.

Money Transfer

Use the soeasy Money Transfer service, to transfer money from your soeasy account to another soeasy account!

Dial #105#, select the amount you want to transfer (€2 or €3) and insert the soeasy account to which you want to transfer the money.

After completing this process, you will receive a confirmation message that the transaction has successfully been completed.

You may use the service up to 10 times a month. The first five times are free of charge, while the next 5 times will be charged with €0,25 per transfer. The amount will be deducted from the soeasy account that transfers the money.

The amount transferred is not regarded as a top-up and as result, it does not affect the validity period of the soeasy account to which the money has been transferred. Therefore, the validity period of the most recent top-up still applies. To extend your validity period you are advised to top-up your soeasy.

Call me back

A new service to make life easier for our soeasy customers is the “Call me back” service. If you run out of airtime and you need to contact someone urgently you can ask them to “Call me back”. All you have to do is press #120#. Soon, you will receive a text message asking you to dial the mobile number of the person you want to contact, if he/she has a Cytamobile-Vodafone connection.
