  1. Pick-up your phone and wait for the dialtone.
  2. Dial the number you want to call preceded by the prefix "1616" (e.g. to call P-Tel’s number just dial 1616 + 0800 50 316)
  3. And that’s it!

Only the calls that you dialled with 1616 will be invoiced by P-Tel.


There is no need to cancel your existing telephone contract to benefit from the low rates of P Tel’s 1616 – Carrier Select/Carrier Pre-Select Service. Since P-Tel does not charge any subscription fees, you can choose to use our service for no additional cost.

With the 1616 Carrier Pre-Select service, you will not even have to dial 1616 before each call anymore: your line will be pre-configured so that the 1616 service will be used automatically for all of your communications!

You must send a duly completed and signed service contract to P-Tel in order for our service to be activated on your phone line.
