SIM card for two weeks in CH - recommendations?

Hi, we are planning a trip in March and I would like to get a SIM card in country so we can use our phone to keep in touch with family and friends, and arrange meetings etc. What technical capability does my phone need to have to work in CH?

Would these specs work?
Unlocked cell phone
2G bands - GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2
3G & 4G bands - HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100
4G speeds

Thanks,
Technically Challenged

Re: SIM card for two weeks in CH - recommendations?

I am an *unhappy* Swisscom customer, but after having checked few "low-budget" providers, I was quite surprised to see that Swisscom had the best deal for prepaid SIM, at least for voice call costs.
Internet traffic costs are pretty much the same for all providers I checked.
