Why can't you change your address with Swisscom? I assume you mean for your Natel subscription invoice? You can receive it by email. They do accept an overseas address both as a residential address and a correspondence address. You just change it online in your client area. They have plenty of subscribers who don't reside in Switzerland, some have never resided in Switzerland.
You can't change your address online with Swisscom, you can try & the website does not accept the change. TBH I don't care where they think I live. Historically you did not register Swiss mobile no's, 9/11 changed all that.

I had similar problems. Their system did not accept the change I wanted to put in, but this was for an address in Switzerland. As soon as I put in an address abroad, the change was accepted online (in the 'Swisscom Login'), also concerning a Natel residential and invoice address. I'm not really bothered either where they think I live since the invoices come by email and are paid online anyway.

Historically all mobile 'pay as you go' style cards were unregistered (for all networks) in Switzerland. The law changed this in 2004, and registrations were necessary from then on, the law was also backdated, however to 2002 only.
Anyone who purchased a sim card before that is under no obligation to register the sim card in Switzerland, and those ones, to this day, remain by and large unregistered/anonymous!

Re: Can you have a Paypal account in Switzerland?

I've been using PP in CH for quite some time now, almost seamlessly. When issues did arise, the contact center has been very helpful in getting me back on track.

Re: Can you have a Paypal account in Switzerland?

Got this from PayPal today:

Thank you for contacting PayPal regarding the registration of a Swiss bank.

Please note that you should be able to add bank account that contains both letters and digits.

Here is how to add your Swiss bank account to your PayPal account:

Log in to your PayPal account and click Profile at the top of the page.
In the My Money section, click the Add My Bank Account link on the right, next to "Bank Accounts."
Under "Country," select Switzerland, and then enter your first name exactly as it appears on your bank statement (for Personal or Premier accounts only).
Enter the name of the bank.
Enter the clearing number
Enter the account number required by your bank for electronic transfers.
o Enter your bank account number. Exclude spaces or dashes but include any letters.
o The Swiss bank account must be denominated in Swiss Francs only, as the currency is converted before the sum is received by the bank.
o A Swiss bank account denominated in US dollars should not be added, as the transfer will not go through successfully.
Click Continue.
Check your information, and then click Add Bank Account. (Click Edit to make any changes.)


It is my pleasure to assist you. Thank you for choosing PayPal.
