Iphone4 from UK or Switzerland?

Hi there - I will be moving to Switzerland at the end of the month from the UK and I desperately need a new phone.

There is no point me sigining a new contract here but can anyone advise me on whether i should buy an iphone4 in the UK unlocked and then just get a sim contract in switz or would i get a better deal if i go for the iphone4 in Switzerland on contract? Iphone4 is 510 here... is it cheaper than switzerland?

I'd just wait until you get here. Swisscom seems to be the better provider when it comes to data coverage. I would think that a contract is best.

Re: Iphone4 from UK or Switzerland?

I would recommend trying an iphone 4 first because the people I know who have one say it isn't as good as the old models. iphone 3gs works well in my office but on iphone 4 the calls drop.

I got mine here for 310chf with a 2 year cheapo contract. Seemed like a good deal at the time.

You can do the math yourself and see what contract and what usage suits you best. Obviously we don't know how many minutes or texts you need.

I usually always buy my phones sim free and get a sim only contract.
