Re: Salt offer CHF 19/month

the 19chf for the lycamobile Euro19 offer is for unlimited data with a speed cap above 3gb of usage [cap limits you to 120 kb/s]

for 39chf you get 10gb before the speed cap kicks in

59chf you get 15gb before the speed cap kicks in

69chf gets you 20gb before cap

All of which is IN SWITZERLAND. The Salt offer includes a data package of 1GB ABROAD (well, within the EU at least...). If you know roaming costs and you happen to be in the EU a lot is this a very good thing to have...

Re: Salt offer CHF 19/month

I bought the discounted monthly fee from Salt almost 2 years ago. CHF 19.95

On Wednesday I received a reminder that my subscription would expire soon. And they are offering me a renewal of that fee if I do it by 11pm tonight.

While previously I would jump in for such offers, this time I'd like to wait.

Did anyone have experience with them in that they sent you the same reminder 2 months ahead, you waited (hadn't renewed yet) and they sent you another reminder with the same discounted renewal subscription? And if so, was it a month or even 2 weeks before your subscription expired?

TIA

I've been with Salt for the past two years. Since my current contract (39.99 CHF/month Salt Young + anniversary deal... unlimited calls and LTE in CH/EU+US) expires in July I approached them and asked for an offer. They proposed the same package as I have now but for 60 CHF/month. I kindly thanked and will be moving to Yallo.

Talk to Yallo, I was offered yallo fat plus for 27 CHF/month + no activation fee.

And remember if you want to cancel your contract with Salt you cannot do it by letter, you need to call them...ridiculous.

Re: Salt offer CHF 19/month

Lycamobile offers also plans which includes unlimited data, EU roaming and unlimited calls/SMS.

Prices seem very competitive:

Based upon my own and my son's bad experiences with SALT (extended cancellation periods mainly, but other issues also) I would definately not recommend SALT to anyone. In my own opinion, they are certainly not a customer oriented organisation.

Swisscom are better but I am now a very satisfied Yallo (Sunrise) customer. Check out their offers...

Re: Salt offer CHF 19/month

I moved to Yallo after Salt refused to give me a discount on full price when renewing. Yallo often have half price deals which never expire and as a current customer, of you see a new deal on their website they will give it to you no questions asked - unlike Salt who would rather lose you as a customer than give you a deal.

I recently renewed with them, after a lot of discussion. I was/am on an all-inclusive unlimited plan including Europe and US, which had previously been offered at chf69.95 on a two year deal. So my timetable went like this (E is expiry of two year term):

E-2m: "your renewal is due:chf89.95" [standard price with chf10 deducted if you don't want a new phone]. Did nothing.
E: Still appears to be more expensive to renew, so looking at other options, still did nothing. Service continued.
E+1: still being charged old rate.
E+2.5: Yallo/Sunrise offering similar service for chf50 - investigated, seems OK, all ready to switch.
E-2.6: talked to Salt renewal people, managed to get a similar, but not quite as good, offer at chf55 per month. Didn't take it, asked them to match Yallo.
E+2.7: More senior person called me back, ended up matching it, so I continue my old service, now at chf49.95 per month,

So, two key things:
1. Failure to renew left the billing on the old contract rate; how long it would have remained like that I don't know, but they didn't seem like they were going to change it, so if you have a better deal than they're currently offering you can probably just leave it as it is.
2. They will negotiate if you have a better offer elsewhere. I was quite prepared to move, and told them I would do so if they didn't match it. When the first person couldn't quite do so he got a more senior bod to call me back who had the authority to give a lower offer, so perseverance can pay off.

I guess you just didn't try hard enough.

Re: Salt offer CHF 19/month

We’ve had no issues with salt, have always been happy with them. Never bought phones or anything through them, just the mobile service.
