Re: Inexpensive Prepaid SIM Card for iPhone?

At the airport the newspaper shop (Kiosu??) sells Lycra prepaid cards. As you exit the baggage hall, turn left and head in the direction of the rail station. It is just after the florist. Maybe 50m.

During office hours there is the Post Office. Turn right coming out of the baggage hall and continue towards the end, probably 100m.

What I would do is,
1. Contact Verizon and tell them what you are doing and ask if they have a package that will give you the connectivity you need. In particular make sure it will apply to both France and Switzerland. If their package isn’t interesting ask them to unlock the phone. (You should ask them to do this anyway)
2. Buy a Simcard from an international provider like Lycra. As you will be in at least two countries you don’t want to be fiddling and buying roaming packages with a card that is tied to one Swiss network. Again make sure it it available in both FR/CH. Go online, they could send you the SIM to your home address, before you leave.
3. There are no cheap iPhones in Switzerland. Even a used iPhone 5s will cost you at least CHF150. IPhone 7 CHF450. See http://shop.vendre.ch/acheter/téléphones-apple-cheapest for example.
