Take a Techi with you, there is so much to think of.
Its really not that easy as a lot of people mention here.
I would agree with this. In theory, it is a simple concept and for people already used to the technology and vocabulary, it might be quick and easy. However, there are an overwhelmingly large number of variables and options which can have a significant impact on the final cost and your satisfaction going forward.

There is a lot of gee-whiz technology out there, but what a person actually "needs" is typically a very small subset of that.

For me, it's been almost two years that I've been in Switzerland. I've been using castoff phones from family (iPhone 6s currently) and Swisscom's pay-as-you-go monthly plan. It costs me about 15CHF a month for phone service with no contract. It doesn't have to be expensive.
