Mobile moving and wifi in Switzerland

Hello everyone,

I'm moving to Geneva from Canada in about 10 days, and I had a few questions concerning wifi.

First of all, should I move my cellphone to Switzerland from Canada, after cancelling my contract here? It's a relatively old and cheap cellphone, so I don't mind leaving it behind, but I wonder if smartphones are expensive there (not looking for the latest versions either)?

I also wonder what is the average monthly price for a smartphone contract with data? I have received an iPad as a gift recently, and wonder as well what are the prices there for data?

Finally, as I'm not very familiar with swiss (or european for that matter) companies that provide this kind of service, I would appreciate if some of you would have a suggestion on which companies to go with, and perhaps some that are would not be so advantageous for me.

Hope you can help me with some of those queries.

TLDR: Looking for info about smartphones data service.

Make your old piece of electronics available to recycling (i.e. drop it off in some shop to be eco-friendly or resell on your favourite auction site).

In / for Canada, decide where you need coverage, then pick up a new phone with appropriate hardware specs(!) including contract there. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...hone_companies

Good luck for surving in the 20th century.
