Cheapest prepaid mobile service provider in Switzerland?

Cheapest prepaid mobile service provider in Switzerland?

I am planning a 8 week trip to Switzerland, I need to know who sells the cheapest prepaid mobile startpack (sim card/with number + credit) in Switzerland? What company has the cheapest offer with focus on local SMS? I am interested in sending SMS (to Swiss mobiles). Just a few local calls, and most importantly I need to know who offers the cheapest outgoing SMS, and where to send free SMS (online)? What company do you recommend? What company do you have?

I think the complete list of budget SIM cards is here: SwissCom network (Mbudget Mobile (from Migros), Sunrise network (Aldi Mobile, Lebara Mobile), Orange network, (Coop Mobile).

Thanks for your advice.

p.s. whatever offer I choose, it should have cheap SMS rates to Austria as well, since I don't plan to get a an Austrian number, I will use my Swiss number while roaming in Austria, so the SMS rates to Austrian mobiles should be low.

Have you looked at Simyo?

Re: Cheapest prepaid mobile service provider in Switzerland?

by Richard.GVA

I personally use the prepaid mobile Migros Budget (Migros is the largest supermarket chain in Switzerland). Mobile calls in/from Switzerland are expensive, usually around CHF 0.40 per minute, with M-Budget it is only 0.28/minute within Switzerland and to most EU-countries.
Other operators may offer very low rates to selected numbers, but gain 0.40 and more to other numbers in Switzerland.

There is no Simyo in Switzerland
and i was also thinking about M-budget they seem to be the cheapest in the whole country, with good network in mountains, and the cheapest roaming sms rate for Austria (I hope).

You might want to post this on the VT Technical Forum as well. There are a lot of phone-savy people there.

Just a suggestion.

So it's not free incoming for Migros budget? You pay for both incoming and outgoing calls?

Re: Cheapest prepaid mobile service provider in Switzerland?

by Richard.GVA

Incoming call are FREE in Switzerland (also caslls from outside Switzerland), but you will have roaming charges for incoming calls when using M-Budget outside Switzerland.

Travel Tips for Zürich

Jules Verne Bar

by AlisonCoghlan

Great place to see Zurich from a height. The Jules Verne bar overlooks Zurich city and you can sit back and chill - take in the spectacular views as far as the alps in the distance - over a glass of wine or a beer.
To reach the bar, you'll have to ride an elevator to the 11th floor, after passing through the street-level restaurant (Brasserie Lipp) with which it's associated. Views from the windows encompass the center of Zurich and some of the surrounding scenery, and the decor includes nostalgic references to what the bar's namesake envisioned as the technology of the future. The place can get crowded with talkers and drinkers in their 30s and 40s as music plays in the background. You can expect conviviality but not necessarily intimacy here. It's a great happy hour spot. Open daily from 11:30am to midnight (until 1am Fri and Sat).

SHOPPING: Zurichs reputation...

by catahoula

SHOPPING: Zurichs reputation as a shopping paradise and an art center which is home to highly renowned auction houses has done much to make the city known throughout the world. The main shopping area is concentrated within one square kilometer in the heart of the city, which means it is easily covered on foot. The best place to start is the main railway station. Stroll down the famous Bahnhofstrasse - one of the most beautiful shopping streets in Europe - towards Paradeplatz and the lake. Here you will find elegant boutiques, department stores, specialist shops with a rich selection of high quality goods (shoes, furs, leather goods, accessories, porcelain, jewelry and watches), banks, confectioners and street cafes which tempt you to linger and relax for a while. Each season of the year has its special charm on the Bahnhofstrasse - spring, when the air is filled with the perfume of the lime trees; summer, when visitors from all over the world throng the street autumn, when the shop windows are especially tempting; and winter, when the Christmas lights bring an extra sparkle to the Bahnhofstrasse. In the Old Town on the left bank of the Limmat (Rennweg, Strehlgasse, Augustinergasse, St.Peterhofstatt, Münsterhof) you will find a myriad of small boutiques, antique shops, burs and cafes. Another attractive shopping street is the Limmatquai on the right bank of the river, with its guildhalls, fashionable boutiques and countless romantic, winding side-streets. Finish your tour with a stroll through the Old Town - the Oberdorf and Niederdorf areas - on the right bank of the Limmat. The Löwenstrasse and the adjoining Bahnhofpassage under the main railway station have also developed into a popular shopping area. The Langstrasse with its exotic atmosphere offers everything your heart desires, and that at moderate prices. / KNABENSCHIESSEN: The oldest of Zurichs customs, is celebrated during the second weekend of September. This shooting competition for 12-16 year old boys and girls at Albisgüetli forms the focal point of a three-day fair. / SECHSELÄUTEN: Zurichs spring festival, is usually held on the third Monday in April (children's parade on the Sunday). The main attractions are the parade of the guilds, dressed in historic costumes, through the center of the city, and the burning of the 'Böögg', symbolizing the end of winter. The 'Böögg' is a snowman made of cotton wool and stuffed with fireworks, which is set alight on Sechseläutenwiese at 6p.m. on the dot. On the Monday evening the members of the various guilds visit each other in their respective guildhalls, bearing lanterns and playing music. VISIT ZURICH: Zurich is located in the very heart of Europe and is easily accessible by all modes of transport. The international Zurich-Kloten Airport is situated just 11 km (7 miles) from the city center and can be reached by train in 10 minutes. As a key transportation hub it is served by over 150 air-lines from all over the world. The main railway station enjoys a central location in the city. There are hourly connections not only to the other large Swiss towns but also to all major cities in Europe. / GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION: The city of Zurich is situated 409 meters (1340 ft.) above sea level at the northern end of the 27km (17 miles) long Lake of Zurich on the Swiss central plateau. Its well-preserved Old Town is to be found on both banks of the River Limmat which flows out of the lake in a northerly direction. The city covers an area of 92 sq. km 3O sq. miles and its highest point is the Utliberg/Uto Kulm 871 meters (2857 ft) above sea level. With a population of some 363 000 inhabitants Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland. The canton of the same name hosts 1.1 million inhabitants and is
thus the countrys most densely populated canton.

Roasted Chestnuts

by jorgec25

There's a local custom that reminded me of home, at first, but when I had the chance to taste them (thank you Sonja) I found out that has nothing to do with Portuguese roasted chestnuts.

These ones are sweeter and they are quite smaller, but with an intense flavour.

In conclusion: I loved them

Zuespa

by yumyum

Zuespa is a fair which is held annually at the "Zurich Messe" in Oerlikon. In 2009 they had their 60th anniversary.

At the Zuespa which is always at the end of September/beginning of October for 10 days, you will find all sorts of things to buy and to taste. They have furniture, sporting goods, wine, household machines etc etc. Also they always have a lottery and various places to enjoy a drink and food like raclette.

One thing that you can traditionally buy there is the "Zuespa Hupf" which is sort of a muffin. In 2009 it cost CHF 3.00.

There are similiar fairs at different times of the year in various Swiss cities like e.g. the "Comptoir" in Lausanne, the "Bea" in Berne and the "Olma" in St. Gallen.
