Free Orange Pre-paid SIM Card

I know Coop-Mobile (that uses the Orange network) is also giving away free SIM cards, but now Orange is also giving them away directly themselves. This one is a little easier as you can do it on-line and in english, and not have to hassle with stopping in a store


http://shop.orange.ch/en/page/freesi...=1008763856471

...since Orange was bought by investment firm Apax in the last few months, they will leave the Orange (France Telecom) group soon and need to be re-branded as something other than Orange. So grab your "Orange" branded SIM cards before they are gone

Why is this post so old?
I would like to "buy" one too now!

A friend told me that organge has the most flexible internet in the phone. And there's some type of contract or prepais where you only pay the days you use internet, something like a couple of francs... Is it true? I didn't find anything on the website.

last year was using a dongle with Orange sim card, the daily internet charge was chf5, with Swisscom it was chf8 a day. both have limited amount of download for the month.

No idea if Orange sim cards are still free anywhere as per OP posting earlier this year.
Last month the Co-op were selling Orange cards for chf5, that offer finished 30 Nov 2012.
Suggest you check around the stores for their offers

There seems to be a bit of a glitch with their system, but if you persevere it does indeed take you to the page where you need to enter all your details. However, one of the required information is your Swiss Identity Card Type, i.e. CH passport or id card number. If you only arrived recently, I doubt that you'll be able to provide them with either.

You are probably best off for now to go to your nearest Mobilezone shop and get a prepaid SIM Card. If you have to make a lot of international calls, I was told the best for that is a Mucho-Mobile SIM.

of course... but you have to fill in a document and show your identification/passport (they make a copy).
