What is the best network for mobile contract?

Hello good day

I'm living in Switzerland, got permission and everything.

Been a few days with the network yallo but even to call the money Portugal flies.

I've been seeing rich of iphone and it seems to me well for my situation.

Asked for your help, what is the best operator to call Portugal? access to the internet and sms.

I've been informed and said that if I go to my country I will have no difficulty in canceling the contract.

I would be grateful for your suggestions.

Excuse my English.

Regards.

Hello,

That question had to do with an inexpensive network to talk to Portugal. But now I know it is possible to make a contract, so I wanted opinions for a contract....

I've been on Orange for two years with no problems.

It depends on what phone you are after and what deals are available

Re: What is the best network for mobile contract?

The orange seems to me the most interesting for international calls. I have one question is when they say the 240 minutes to any network operator and it is 240 minutes? is that once a card bought in luxembourg that led to 240 minutes but if I make international calls they flew is possible by controlling spending go? block and if it passes the 240 minutes?

So, before, you wanted an inexpensive network to talk to Portugal, whereas now you want an inexpensive network to talk to Portugal? I see...


Orange. Beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Re: What is the best network for mobile contract?

Yes I do in a week in yallo already spent 50 francs to call Portugal, so I noticed that a contract will be ideal for me.
I was to inform me and said it was possible to make a contract even though I have only a work contract of six months.

I have other question, if I make a two-year contract and get to the end of half year and not get more work? what the cost I will have to pay the network to cancel the contract?

Re: What is the best network for mobile contract?

It depends on your budget (i am evaluating also since i will be in Zurich on 23rd). For unlimited calls you have 90 chf/month in Orange.

Re: What is the best network for mobile contract?

What is the difference between the plane of Swisscom and paying close to 170 francs and that the orange is much cheaper and it is unlimited? I think that the orange is a bit dangerous, is not quite what they say. Can I talk to any number of whisker or whisker away unlimited? as well as messages? then why on Swisscom is much more expensive?

Hug.

WTF did you say

- Swisscom don't do planes they are a telecom company.
- I've never met a dangerous orange... satsumas however are know to be sneaky buggers.
- Whiskers... what do cats have to do with it.

On a serious note, use skype to call Portugal, CHf 170 per month is more than I pay for my HD TV, 50meg broadband, home phone (and we phone the UK a lot on the land line or Skype) with Cablecom and my Swisscom iphone contract... and leave off the hard liquor

Re: What is the best network for mobile contract?

get a 'droid and use a SIP contract and a good data plan.

still comes back to Orange. The 240 minutes are ...... to ....... local, mobile and many international locations. You can hit around 85 francs a month for that and a Gig of data.

With Android Sip clients, you can use a much cheaper service to supplement the minutes. My SIP provider is 0 per minute to call Portugal That's Mama's home phone not cellphone, mind you

Re: What is the best network for mobile contract?

I was thinking about getting the white iPhone. What is really needed is for me to make calls to Portugal. So I need a contract with these possibilities, and from what I saw, only to Orange offers this. In principle I will got the white iphone for 179 fr and get paid for 85 months fr, am I entitled to 1gb internet, unlimited SMS and 240 minutes for each side.

1gb of internet is really good? or normally spend more?

Hug.

Also prepaid Lycamobile CH

Free SIM card to your home.

Call connection fees applies to the above - so not entirely free. I call Lycamobile UK and Lycamobile Denmark for virtually free for up to 15 minutes except for the small call connect charges.

Re: What is the best network for mobile contract?

I went to the MobileZone website which allowed me to compare contracts on iPhones. Then I went to orange.ch and made my purchase. The only down side is, if I get to close to Riehen I end up roaming on DeutscheTelekom.

So you should buy your simcard in congstar.de
That's a good option that goes though the deutsche Telekom net.

Your phone can be programmed to manual operator selection, which I do especially when travelling near to border or overseas.
