2I am already a subscriber to one of Cablenet’s Internet, Fixed Telephony and/or TV services. Could I benefit from combining these services with the Cablenet Mobile service?
Yes, you can benefit with the competitive mobile rates and also select a mobile device of your choice to bundle with your mobile services.
3I am another company’s customer. Could I get Cablenet Mobile and keep the same number?
Of course. You can keep your existing number by following the number portability procedure. For more information regarding number portability, as well as the required documentation, please call the Customer Service Centre on 120. There is no charge for the transfer procedure.
4How will I be notified that the portability procedure has been completed?
You will be notified via SMS on your mobile the day before the date set for the transfer. The new Cablenet SIM card will have to be placed in your mobile on the day and time set for the transfer in order to activate the service.
5How can I activate Calling Line Identification Restriction (CLIR)?
You can selectively activate Calling Line Identification Restriction (CLIR) for a call by dialling #31# before the number you wish to call. If you wish to permanently withhold your number via your device, please refer to the manufacturer’s user manual.
6If the number calling me is withheld, is there any way I can find out who it is?
Confidentiality may be waived within the framework set by legislation. For more information, please call the Customer Service Centre on 120.
7How can I divert calls and how will I be charged?
The Call Forwarding Service enables you to divert received calls to any phone number of your choice within Cyprus.

Mobile telephony networks do not provide the ability to forward SMS or MMS messages. To activate the Call Forwarding Service, please refer to the manufacturer’s user manual.
8How can I activate/deactivate blocking of 900 (premium rate) numbers?

11Why is my mobile’s signal strength not always steady?
Your mobile’s signal strength is directly affected by the distance between you and the tower transmitting the signal. As the distance between you and the tower increases, the signal strength will weaken until you connect to another signal-transmitting tower which is closer to your location.
12What should I do if I receive nuisance calls on my mobile?
You can proceed in filing a complaint at a Police Station and, subsequently, with confirmation of your complaint, visit a Cablenet store where, upon submitting your complaint, you will be asked to complete the nuisance call form in order to initiate an investigation.
13How can I activate Missed Call Notification?
