Prepaid iPhone - orange, talktalk or 20 min?

Hi there - we're looking at getting a prepaid sim for an iphone. Have ruled out swisscom due to price. Also the sunrise option doesn't seem to make sense for us is 1 CHF per day once you use a call etc. I guess we're looking at <100 MB of data a month, quite a few texts (maybe 50 a month?) + some calls, but not too many. So in order of priority - data + texts, then calls. Calls be to swiss mobiles I guess. Use is mainly in City of Zurich

Price wise we see this:
20 min - call 20c, text 10c, data 300MB for 10 CHF
talktalk - call 19c, text 15, data 100MB for 7.50 CHF
orange - call .39, text 10c ,data 10 per month

So from that it looks like the winner is 20min, then talktalk, then orange.

1) Does this sound about right, or are we missing some options?
2) Any experiences of these guys... which should we go with it? Thinking 20min is the winner so far

Thanks
Graham

How many minutes do you expect to use? If you can estimate monthly costs based on that then you could compare to postpaid...

Hi - it's actually for my girlfriends. Minutes, not much at all - we have skype for calls back home. Is mainly just as a backup. So prepaid defo the way to go.

Anyone any experiences with 20 mins ?
