If your correspondent is on the line with someone else, there is little point in calling every 2 minutes. Depending on your line, you simply type the code '5' or 'R5' as soon as you hear the busy signal. You can reach someone else in the meantime. As soon as your line is free, you will be called back and the call will be set up with your correspondent.
This service is free of charge.
Dial 1919 toll-free to receive information about your last missed call and to call back that number directly.
Do you want to call anonymously, so that your fixed phone number and name is not displayed on the phone of the called party?
You have two free of charge options:
- for a specific call, dial * 31 * + the number of the person you are calling #
- to apply the restriction for a longer period of time, call 0800 33 008 or 1987
The PhoneMail™ Basic and PhoneMail™ answering services are free of charge.
PhoneMail™ Basic :
- You are automatically equipped with this feature.
- If you are not answering a call after approximately ten rings, the caller has the opportunity to leave a message (at the price of an ordinary domestic telephone call). Proximus will then attempt to deliver the message to you for two days.
- Receiving and listening to messages are completely free of charge.
- You can activate and deactivate the service at any time by calling toll-free 1950 from your landline.

- When you pick up the phone, a recorded voice will alert you that you have a new message.
- Check your voicemail from any touch-tone phone, in Belgium and abroad.

The answering service is incompatible with lines to which other systems are connected, such as fax, answer machine or modem or any alarm system not approved by the IBPT (The Belgian Institute for Postal and Telecommunications in Belgium is mainly responsible for legislation and monitoring of telecom operators).
