Best pre-paid tariff for Android tablets?

My wife and I are getting 3G-enabled Android tablets. I know that Swisscom has prepaid tariffs for iPads - but apparently those only work with Apple devices (no way to add packages except directly from an iOS device / iPad).

Orange is not an option because there's no EDGE where we live and 3G coverage in our area is zero. Sunrise is very spotty here, too.

Are there any other providers that (preferably) use Swisscom's network and offer pre-paid surf packages? As my wife will be in the hospital for a week, plenty of data should be included or bookable (200mb is not enough).

Peter

Re: Best pre-paid tariff for Android tablets?

If you can accept sunrise, the sunrise surf option for prepaid is the best choice. You can active it anytime for 1 month(7.5 Fr. 250 MB). If you want to have swisscom network, you can use the M-Budget mobile internet. It is prepaid and the price is 0.10 Fr./MB.

I am not at all sure that mobile internet SIM card from Migros will work with anything other then their USB-modem. On their webpage it says "SIM-Lock permanent".

With regular Migros prepaid it costs Fr. 0.28 / MB!

Use Yallo's prepaid for CHF2 for 10 mbs if you're a light surfer.

You can use SIM card every where. Only the USB modem is locked! You can not use Migros mobile internet SIM to make phone calls!
