What is the best provider for me?

Hello good afternoon,

First of all congratulations for the excellent forum. Well, I'll live to Switzerland and wanted to call an operator with excellent price to Portugal, wanted access to the internet because I have a Htc Desire

The ideal would be:

Good price for calls Portugal.
Being able to put a number to call in switzerland for the same carrier and free sms.
Internet access.

What is the best suggestion for my case?

Sorry for my English because I'm Portuguese.

Once again congratulations for the excellent forum.

Regards.

I have contract with Orange and I pay 120 Fr a month. I have unlimited calls to all Europe, Australia and America, unlimited sms and 1 GB internet included. This is good option if you frequently call Europe and your bill will exceed this amount. Orange also have internet offers but I dont have it so you should check it.

Re: What is the best provider for me?

For now I think I can not make any agreement because it is not allowed.

Will I have a contract to work only for half a year for now.

What is the best option for uploads? for now I can not make contracts with carriers. I will just call my parents, and gave way can connect for free and send sms to my girlfriend who also is in Switzerland but not yet chosen a provider.

We are waiting to find out the most advantageous to us. Thank you.

Re: What is the best provider for me?

If I wanted to call Portugal untimed, I'd do it with Switzernet VOIP ( maybe not what you require - costs CHF9 a month and requires a decent internet connection ).

Re: What is the best provider for me?

For, in the beginning but I will not have any internet access. I just wanted a card to your cellphone.

But it is a good suggestion.

Portugal 0.05 - Lebara. Is it real? I had already heard of yallo but this is still cheaper. I am amazed!

Another option is Rebtel
http://www.rebtel.com/en/
They give you a local number to call linked to your destination no. You'll get new numbers to call, but it works quite well for me. Costs are local call rate (depends on your SIM) + rebtel rate = 1,5 eurocent/min.

Try Lebera, or Yallo. Swisscom is expensive, and just explain to the person what you are going to do, and they can help you out. Switzerland is the most expensive country to have a cellphone
