The deal is on. Basically, it's the Sunrise Now Relax at 29.-/month instead of 75.

The major catch is that you have to get a new number (no porting).

Re: Unlimited mobile phone & internet for CHF 29/mo

Just for the unlimited LTE makes it a really great deal.
The coverage looks decent if you're in one of the larger cities/towns:

Re: Unlimited mobile phone & internet for CHF 29/mo

I made the leap. My Orange contract ends in early May, so I'll take the 31st March option and take the loss of one month and change. I have a great price with Orange, but I'll still save 100 CHF next year even if you discount the cost of the new SIM card and the month I lose with Orange. All with unlimited calls, SMS, and 4G. Unless you live in the sticks (where Swisscom is admittedly better than Sunrise/Orange) or are completely adverse to changing numbers, it's a once-in-a-lifetime deal at this price.

I was open to Sunrise until a friend of mine who lives in Basel switched from Orange to them and said it was horrible.

Also another friend in Neuch said she gets horrible reception and is much happier with Orange now.

It may be cheap but if you pay peanuts you get monkeys

I got one just for the heck of it. I'm going to see if I can hammer the crap out of the data.

I was also warned about their reception, but I'll give them a chance. Worst case, I save some cash, have something to complain about for year, and cancel come 2015.

My wife also got the deal and funny thing is that all numbers bought with it will start with 076 822xxxx. I joked with her that if we ever divorce we'll have a hard time looking at our own phone number without thinking "b*tch" or "bastard".

Exactly what I heard from her friend. Her brother changed recently and has been getting wrong bills and disrupted service and the nightmare simply doesn't stop and Sunrise doesn't seem able/ready to correct the situation. Also he met plenty of other customers in the Sunrise store that were in the same situation.

This has stopped me from taking the deal.

Re: Unlimited mobile phone & internet for CHF 29/mo

I had sunrise for one year in 2010 and then switched to Orange without hesitation.

The biggest problem with sunrise I had was that every month some of my usage was counted as in roaming in France, even if I did not live so close to the border (>20km). I remember that once I was on roaming even in Montreux... I really did not understand how the signal from the other side of the lake could take up.

So it's limited to 10,000 people then?

That happens also around Geneva. I set network selection to manual, problem solved.

Re: Unlimited mobile phone & internet for CHF 29/mo

By the way, this offer (almost) is permanent for people working in the public sector and university, at canton Vaud. I pay 32chf/month for unlimited imternet, sms, calls to all networks and fix. Not bad at all

Every employee has the right to get 3 numbers. So, if anyone is interested, check for privatel, which is using the sunrise network.

Cheers,
A

Re: Unlimited mobile phone & internet for CHF 29/mo

After a few days with Sunrise, not too shabby. Their LTE coverage is spottier than Orange, but you do get it periodically and it will only get better (and HDSPA+ has been available everywhere I've gone). They started billing everyone who got the Qoqa offer a few days early (5 CHF extra charges), but gave us 10 francs on our next month's bill to make up for it. Nice of them. Anyway, you can feel the slight downgrade, but I'm paying 29 francs p/m with unlimited everything, I'll let a few things slide.

Wild guess, but based on the date and language of the OP I believe this offer expired.
