Best mobile tariff for a teenager

My 15 year old daughter is spending a fortune on texts each month. Can anyone recommend the best deal at the moment for her. She's on Orange at present.

Almost all the Orange Me tariffs have an unlimited texts option for about 15/month I think. Worth a look at least

Orange Youngstar is good value and is unlimited text to other Orange users (only). My 13 and her friends all have this, and try to use What's App when texting our Swisscom phones (rarely) or Viber, both free if on WLan.

Re: Best mobile tariff for a teenager

We had the same problem with our teenager daughter so we got her an offer from Sunrise: Flat 1 SIM only offer. Normally is 30 chf but you can get it for 15 chf. The only thing is that it is a SIM only so she would not get a phone. It has free calls in Sunrise, flat SMS and flat mobile internet (high speed the first 500 MB). Not bad for 15 chf a month

Re: Best mobile tariff for a teenager

She is asking about the best offer for a teenager...not about Orange

Re: Best mobile tariff for a teenager

It's a fair question .... yes we had, but we were interested in knowing what other products were out there that people had tried.

Re: Best mobile tariff for a teenager

Our daughter is on an orangeme plan with her own phone meaning it is 15CHF only if she doesnt go onto global roaming. Calls and texts to other orange numbers are unlimited and free with 1GB of data.

This means all her calls in the family are free and she then only pays for the small number of people not on orange. She also uses whatsapp a lot to friends especially those not on orange

So far its working well and it applies to under 25 not just teenagers
