Is it possible to use more than one mobile phone number? Customers who have not registered for the service -> You can use any Macedonian Telekom and A1 mobile phone number. Customers who have registered for the service -> Registered users can link ten mobile phones to one account.
Is it possible to use the mobile parking service for someone else's car? Yes, this is possible. By entering the car's license plate number in your start SMS, you can start and end a mobile parking session for any car you want, as long as only one car per mobile phone number is parking at a time.
Do I need to include the car license plate number in the start SMS if I always park with the same car?No, you don't. The system automatically remembers the car you parked the previous time. If you use the same car, you can start parking by typing only the parking-zone code in your start SMS - there is no need to repeat the license number if you included it in your previous start SMS.
How do I know whether the system works or not?You normally receive a confirmation message for each SMS command you send. This confirmation normally arrives between 5 and 15 seconds after you send your start or stop parking SMS.
