Get a free Prepaid SIM from Coop Mobile

Until 21. April Coop Mobile is giving the Prepaid SIM-Card with 15 Fr. credit on it for free. Also included is a 3 months free data promotion with 300 MB/month. It is a good chance if somebody wants to test the Orange network.

Re: Get a free Prepaid SIM from Coop Mobile

Is there any catch?

BTW, it's worth looking for similar offers from M-Budget if you're eager to use Swisscom's mobile network.

Re: Get a free Prepaid SIM from Coop Mobile

I got a text from Sunrise saying they would port the number in June, so all seems to be going well so far.

Re: Get a free Prepaid SIM from Coop Mobile

Well, it is prepaid ( CHF15 thrown in for free as well ). One can always recharge or opt not to and let it expire. For me, I can slot it into my USB stick and use it in Romandie ( 300MB per month is free ) when Sunrise coverage fails and use the other SIM card for voice etc.

Can you list the details of the M-Budget / Swisscom offer ?

Re: Get a free Prepaid SIM from Coop Mobile

I bought two before Easter and I was told that they would be activated after Easter. Tonight I tried to use them and with both I get sim card registration failed. I called the 0800 780 782 (they have english) and I was told that there is a huge number of requests (really! ) and probably the store has not sent my sims registration and I need to go over there. I told the lady that I do not even live in Zurich and i am not going to drive there since it is not my fault. She got my info (numbers, my name, address, ID number) and she said that she would send an sms if everything is ok or she would call if anything is wrong. This was 10 minutes ago.
So...buy it close to your place and if you did not...tell them you are not going to drive over there to do their job.
Hope this helps!
Enjoy the freebie

Re: Get a free Prepaid SIM from Coop Mobile

The PIN ( and PIN2, PUK1 as well as PUK2 ) are found in the sealed folded paper under the heading INFO at the bottom.

300 MB/month are only free if you opt-in for the respective promo offer and only for three months. I bought the SIM card yesterday too, it's free after all …

http://www.migros.ch/de/supermarkt/m...e-prepaid.html

M-Budget Mobile Prepaid is the cheapest way to use the Swisscom network, that's its major advantage. Except from that, it's a real no-frills offer: Voice calls, SMS and data, no MMS and no voice mail (you get an SMS notification if someone tried to call you). The SIM lock is permanent if you buy SIM card and mobile phone from M-Budget Mobile.

Voice call = CHF 0.28/minute
SMS = CHF 0.10
Data = CHF 0.28/MB (maximum CHF 5.00/day)

The standard price for a SIM card with CHF 15.00 credit is CHF 19.80. From time to time, there are offers similar to the current one from Coop.

Re: Get a free Prepaid SIM from Coop Mobile

Got mine today, tried last week but they weren't able to get through to register it, and said come back this week...

No problem, got the number and it will (should) be activated within 48 hours.

If you still need to get one do it today or tomorrow...

Re: Get a free Prepaid SIM from Coop Mobile

What's the problem with the registration? According to the information on the Coop Mobile website, activation happens on your first call using the prepaid SIM card.

Well I guess they just say 48 hours in case there's any delay... no idea...

The problem last week was the shop couldn't get through wherever they have to ring when they sell them... or something... as there were too many people trying to get them... I don't understand German yet so didn't ask for details... just nodded and went back today and got one.

I purchased the SIM card two days ago and today, I get the error message 'SIM card registration failed' from my mobile phone. I hope the registration will work next week …
