Do Swisscom (Mobile) offer a contract renewal discount?

As the title says really...

I'm tempted to move onto one of the new tariffs they are bringing out next month, but my contract is up in a couple of months. Orange offered a CHF10 a month discount when we renewed a different contract last year, but then wouldn't let us move onto a better contract (not that it matters as their reception here is piss poor and it won't be renewed again).

CHF45 (i.e. what I have now less a CHF 10 discount) vs. CHF75 a month for the new tariff is worth thinking about.

NB I buy my phone's SIM free so am not interested in any 'discount' phone upgrade offers.

No, the abo rates are the same for everyone. Orange did some -10CHF on abos last year around xmas time, but that was a special offer, not normal practice.

BTW: you can get a discount on a phone if you re-new your contract for 1 or 2 years. All phones, with the exception of iPhones and maybe BlackBerrys, are always sold without a SIM lock. Only cheap 20CHF phones you get with pre-paid SIMs are locked for 2 years.

Thanks.

I renewed a contract with Orange in August/September and got the impression it was an offer they already made.

One of the reasons I buy SIM free phones is so that I can get phones that aren't available on that network e.g. I bought an HTC Desire from Digitec with a Swisscom contract (and took the rebate from them) not long after it came out. Similarly, I ordered an iPhone 4 from Apple on release day, as I'm impatient and can't be bothered with the it'll maybe be a week, maybe a month, maybe 3 before you get your phone. Likewise when the iPhone 5 comes out I'll do the same again.

However if I can get a subsidised unlocked phone from Swisscom to flog on to offset part of the iPhone cost, that's worth looking into. The question is, if I change tariff with Swisscom now, does that count as a contract renewal? I shall post on the other thread...

Oh, maybe they do have some discount then for keeping existing customers. I have had Swisscom and Sunrise abos, and neither offered any kind of discount on the abo. They do of course for phones offer a discount. Swisscom barely offers any discount tho, Sunrise usually gives better discounts. I never had an Orange abo, so I don't know about them.
