Swisscom options for short term cell phone plan

Hi all,

I am new nanny in Zurich and am wanting some advice on cell phone plans. Right now my family set me up with a pay as you go plan with swisscom but that seems to be stripping the money away like it is nothing. I know by using internet and various apps that I will be having to pay more regardless but living far away its a comfort to be able to use your cell phone like you did back home. I am just wondering at this point if it would be more wise to put my number on my familys swisscom plan. I would take a gander that the being on their swisscom plan will save more money then staying on pay as you go as I am running through the money each week. The family is required to pay for my cell phone regardless. I would like to find the least expensive route though.

Help? advice?

Well, it all depends how much data are you using per month. There are also monthly data packages for prepaid accounts, you can check if that would be better:

Look under the 'Data packages'.

One thing you can do right away is change your usage habits. If your phone has wireless capability and there's a free wireless network you can use, do that. Don't use phone data unless you have no internet available. There should be a setting where you can turn off the default to use the phone for your access to the Internet. We use our phone a lot, even for videos and Skype, and have never used up our data allotment.
