When you make roaming communications, you are connected to one of the mobile networks in your host country.
For invoicing purposes, operators in some countries may replace some destination numbers with generic numbers.
This is often the case for communications to service numbers, hotlines or value-added service numbers etc.
(France Telecom, for example, systematically replaces all short numbers with the generic number +333000 on their invoices.)
Sometimes an operator has simply not registered the destination number and, therefore, indicates a generic one.
Sometimes it is possible to find the real destination number on a search site of the country you travelled to (e.g. Google.it, .fr, .es, etc.).
So, basically, the issue is not linked to any billing error but to the invoice display.
You can always recharge credit, no matter where you are.

Please note that your mobile devices consume data, even if you are not actively using the Internet.
Since the daily PrePay rate of CHF 1.99 is charged, as soon as an Internet connection is established, the amount will be deducted from your balance on a daily basis, as long as Internet data remain active.
To avoid this, we recommend that you proceed as follows:
Disable mobile data and enable the functionality only when you actually want to surf the Internet.
- Activate a one of our prepaid data packages.
(As soon as the included data volume is exhausted, Internet access will be blocked and no additional costs will be incurred.
