2. What's the wifi access like in Switzerland? Is it free or do you pay?
I've found this disappointing. It's nearly all pay networks and most are expensive and some have cumbersome interfaces. I get an allowance with my Orange iPhone contract but it's completely pointless.

Re: iPhone 5 coming soon

Hello I'm new to this forum and I'm thinking of moving to Zurich soon.

I have been with 02 for years in the UK and I'm currently out of contract which is handy.

I'v got a few questions regarding my iPhone and what would be the best thing to do for the future.

1. Would it be best to just arrive in Zurich and buy a local sim card? What kind of deals do they have locally? How much data download can you have?

2. What's the wifi access like in Switzerland? Is it free or do you pay?

3. If I wanted to have a contract who would be best to use? Will they give me a contract with no credit record locally or fixed permanent address. The new iPhone 5 will be out this summer. I could get one with 02 and would have to sign for a two year deal. The phone would be free.

Some general help and guidance on all this would be great. This post on the forum was done on a iPhone native app. Which is so handy. You got to love technology.

Thank you all.
This can all be answered by going to the swisscom and orange websites at www.swisscom.ch or www.orange.ch. They are both in English.

You shouldn't have a problem getting a contract if you don't have a credit history.

Nobody knows the price of the iPhone 5 yet. I don't see it being more expensive than the 4 was though.

And as long as you have a B-Permit.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

Has anyone used the Taxi 444 iPhone app?

I was trying to the other day, but it seems you cannot specify a pickup time, it is only for instant pickup - can this be right or am i just being daft?

Re: The General iPhone Thread and FAQ

Rumours circulating that there may be no iPhone 5 this year In a way I'm actually glad, I quite like my '4' and can't see the need to upgrade anytime soon

Apple fans may have to wait till next year before they can junk their iPhone 4s in favour of iPhone the Fifth.
Analyst firm Avian Securities said that production of the iPhone 5 won't begin till September, meaning a holiday launch at the earliest, or even a New Year's debut.

The note, reported in Business Insider, is based on chats with key component suppliers, which support a consensus view that launch will be either a late 2011 or early 2012 event.
The note adds that a low-spec, low-price iPhone is also on the Apple roadmap, though exactly where on the roadmap is unclear.
This is surely a worrying development for the iPhone elite – not only could such a nano-iPhone divert some components, further pushing back the iPhone 5, but it would mean that "ordinary people" can get their hands on a fondleslab.
iPhone fans will already be unsettled as manufacturers struggle to secure supplies of some key components in the wake of the Japanese earthquake last month, with the parts drought likely to hit smartphone sales to the tune of 5 per cent according to The Guardian.
Apple is thought to have already secured its supply chains. Surely it wouldn't be so cruel as to sit back and watch its rivals sweat over their iPad and iPhone catchups before dropping its latest iPhone into a fondle-hungry market. ®

Re: The General iPhone Thread and FAQ

Ugggh, hope this is not true...I held off on getting the iPhone 4 upon arriving en Suisse, thinking the 5 was just around the corner...May have to hold onto my crummy Nokia E71 for a bit longer

Re: The General iPhone Thread and FAQ

The iPhone is now available unlocked in the USA for only $650. A bargain if you ask me!
