10. My PIN does not work. What can I do?

First, please double check you have waited 15 minutes and are entering the correct PIN.

Here are some possible reasons for your PIN not working:

  • You are attempting to redeem the PIN in a different country from the one in which the PIN was purchased;
  • There are three or more earlier, unredeemed PINs linked to the telephone number you are using;
  • More than three accounts are currently subcribing by PayByPhone on the telephone number you are using.

If the PIN still does not work, please submit a billing support. You will need to provide the phone number that you used to pay, the PIN you were issued with and the date and time the call was made.

12. When I call the service, the call does not connect correctly. What is wrong?

Please check with your telephone operator if your line is blocked from making calls to premium rate numbers.

The possible reasons can be:

  • The bill payer has blocked dialling premium numbers;
  • A call made to a premium rate number has been disputed previously;
  • You are calling from a business line.

If there is a block on premium rate calls you will need to check with the person who pays the telephone bill before getting the block lifted. Please note that you will not be charged for any calls which do not successfully complete.

13. There is no premium rate block on my telephone line but I cannot connect to the service. What is wrong?

We do not actively block any numbers from calling our PayByPhone service. If you are unable to connect to the service, then please contact your telephone operator. Alternatively, you may wish to consider one of the other payment methods we offer. A full list of these payment methods can be found by selecting 'Start a new subscription' on www.funorb.com.

15. PayByPhone is available in my country, but the PayByPhone logo is not displayed when I try to subscribe. Why?

You will only be able to purchase membership using PayByPhone if your account has less than 14 days of membership credit remaining on it. If you wish to use this payment method, you will need to wait until your account has less than 14 days of membership credit left.

Back to the top

16. Why did I receive fewer days of membership than I expected?

This problem is usually caused by calling the discounted membership rate telephone line, even though your account is not eligible for the discounted rate. By attempting to apply a discounted PIN to a full-price paying account, you will pay less for the call, but you will also receive fewer days of membership, usually 26 days.

To avoid this issue, please ensure that you are calling the correct number. You should go through the whole subscription process each time you subscribe, to make sure that the telephone number you are calling is up-to-date.

If you are sure that you have called the correct number, but have still received fewer days of membership than you expected, please submit a billing support query. We will then investigate the issue for you.
