Something went funny with their billing system when they changed to the new offers last month I think seems to have settled down now.

I've got an orange pre-pay for when I visit CH and wanted more data last time than the 20Mb per day for 1CHF which I'd subscribed to in the past.

I couldn't find anything on their website (mobile or desktop version) allowing you to add options to your pre-pay, or even listing the available ones.
I did talk to a guy in the store (at ZRH airport) though who listed a few options and I took the 1Gb per month for 15CHF. He insisted it would be released in daily chunks (so 'd only get 33Mb on that day) but of course, that didn't happen and I used a few hundred Mb on that day.
To buy it I just asked him to add it to my number and handed over 10CHF cash to top up so I had enough credit.

Sorry, I can't remember - I've had that card for a year or so now for use on business trips.

If you can cope with only 1Gb data then their pre-pay seems a hell of a lot better value than a contract which needs you to pay at least 15CHF for free texts on top or 30CHF to have free phone calls!

Re: Mobile Internet with prepaid... finally yes!

For anyone with a Swiss address and official residency, Aldi Mobile Suisse pre-pay (Sunrise) is still a good deal and worth considering.

SIM for 20 with 20 chufs credit and data packages, 500 MB for 9,90 or 14,90 for 1GB, for 30 days (pcm).

Orange Sim Card with "Orange Me PrePay" is 20.- with 25.- of Credit, bought one a month ago.

However the data options are messed up. If you used up the data, you're offline untill you call Orange or go to a store to end the data option and start it again.
There is no way of sending a text to a specific number to reactivate (like it is possible with Sunrise PrePaid Data Options)

I must correct myself, just checked the receipt.

It was CHF 10.- with 25.- worth of credit included.

Re: Mobile Internet with prepaid... finally yes!

Hi! I'm moving tomorrow to Switzerland, to Schaffhausen to be more precise. What can you guys recommend for a prepaid with data? Later probably I will get a contract or something but for now, while I'm searching for a job I need something cheap.
