Moving to Switzerland...whats the best phone tariff to go on?

I am moving to Switzerland for 6 months at the end of August to start a design internship and am baffled by what to do for my phone tariff!

In the UK there's so much choice for tariffs as you can have rolling contract sim only deals which gives you generous minutes/calls and data allowance.

I dont know how phone tariffs work in Switzerland and would like something of a reasonable price that would work well with an Android Sony Xperia phone.

Any suggestions?

Have a look at the numerous threads on tariffs and the like here. Hopefully your answer is already there. Good luck, it's not the UK

Re: Moving to Switzerland...whats the best phone tariff to go on?

The key point to be aware of is that you'll struggle to find a "rolling contract" of the type I suspect you're thinking of in Switzerland, as in a "monthly rolling contract". They are typically 12- or 24-month contracts, and if not cancelled in time roll into another 12 or more month contract.

For a six-month stay, you should really opt for prepaid, i.e. pay-as-you-go. As others have said, details and prices are being discussed elsewhere on the forum.
