doesn't make sense anymore to order from there - you can get it cheaper from the Swiss online store and get the full Swiss warranty. Shipping times are the same anyway.

Re: The General iPhone Thread and FAQ

did you hear about that case/bumper program? apple switzerland did not get those free bumpers. you have to download the iPhone4 case program app from the app store, then login with you mac-ID, choose from a (ok) range and youll get it delivered then. swisscom charges, only apple gives it away like said for free. but only for a certain period after buying...

Yeah, I thought about that - if you order your iPhone from one of the Swiss providers now, you'll have to wait 8 weeks to get it. However, the free bumper-case program ends September 30. Which means you won't get the free case.

I don't understand why Apple doesn't simply send you the case together with the phone.

Just looked up the french apple store. The 32GB iphone 4 is €739 and in the Swiss store its 899CHF which converts to €661 according to xe.com. So the french store is €78 dearer.

French VAT - 19.6%. Swiss VAT - 7.6%

Deduct VAT from the French price, add Swiss VAT instead and it becomes EUR664 - CHF901 at today's rate, so the pre-VAT prices are identical.

Unbelievable isn't it? I can't even get into my account, which was ok previously (just My Offers not available).

However, talking to Orange on the phone on Saturday turned out to be entirely painless.

As far as I know I go the same deal as I would have online.

I was moving from a Maxima contract to the cheapo Optima Start (24 months). I got a CHF160 renewal bonus and a CHF10 reduction per month on the contract cost. So that's going to be 1gb data a month for CHF29

Re: The General iPhone Thread and FAQ

I just called Orange because the site is still down.
I have Optima 30, which gives me 30 minutes per month free to EU or US (even mobiles).
They told me I had to change to the newer plans!! No way!
So if you want an iPhone 4 you have to take the Optima surfer or however is called?
3 free numbers then you pay .45 for EU and US? that would be 66chf extra for 30 minutes. No way...

I'm with orange since 2001, they never obliged me to change. How is that I cannot just extend my contract?

Called on Friday and they said it would be no problem to extend my Optima 30. I really should have ordered up there and then but you know how it goes, someone calls you in the house demanding you do something.... Took me most of the day to get through today only to be told their own systems are down just like the public systems and try calling in the evening

I tried calling Orange last night and was on hold for half an hour before I gave up.

I heard they fired some staff in the run-up to the merger with Sunrise.
Others might have left on their own...

I guess as long as the cash from current subscribers keeps flowing in, there's no need for actual interaction with them
