Poll for the Iphone. Orange or Swisscom??

Ok guys so i decided to see what the divide was between the EFS members in relation to the Iphone, What I want to know is who will be singing up to swisscom and who will be signing up to Orange?

I personally am divided i like the swisscom options but its a 24 month contract whereas the orange you can opt for a 12month contract but then the iphone is more expensive ohh i dont know what to do, but for the moment i think I'm going to say Orange

I think the Orange optima plan is a far better deal than swisscom.
with 3 free call numbers, more data included, and free talk time as part of the monthly fee.

Plus swisscom (who i have been with for 4 years) didnt give me any kind of upgrade deal to an iphone for my 'loyalty'. "That deal is only for NEW customers" yeah right, bye bye swisscom

If you are a current Swisscom customer, and you wish to switch to Orange, can you keep your Swisscom mobile number? Or vice versa? Perhaps this is a factor when deciding on which carrier to go with?

Yes you can. When you order the iphone via the online shop you have the option to either request a new number or transfer an existing number. Precondition is that you are less than 120 days from the end of your current contract.

I think Swisscom might charge you the base fee for the remaining months.

Re: Poll for the Iphone. Orange or Swisscom??

I am going to bump my thread from 2 years ago guy's. so it's 2 years since the 1st iphone came out in Switzerland and in that time do you think much has changed? Who are the majority of people signing up to these days for the Iphone.

Me personally I am still with orange but am thinking of sunrise however I have a good deal with orange and cannot seem to find a comparison with any other network. I am on the universa unlimited I pay 149chf per month for unlimited calls to all swiss landlines and mobiles, 2gb of data and 500 free units to use as sms or calls to any european mobile/landline. For me it is a good deal as I ring europe a lot but and none of the other networks seem to offer anything similar.

For those who've had their smart phones with orange - did you have any problems with data coverage in Zurich?

Thanks

Re: Poll for the Iphone. Orange or Swisscom??

I am using orange prepaid. Strangely in some buildings, there seem to be no reception at all, while other carriers have, such as m-budget...
I chose orange simply because it was the first mobile store that caught my eye when i arrived.

I had major problem when I moved from a Nokia to Andriod Smart phone, later discovered that they have un-even capacity across their network,
e.g it's been over a year in Winterthur with HSDPA full reception but little or no data capacity. They know this is an issue.
You either get good signal with no decent data connection or no signal

I'm waiting to cancel the contract, moving to Swisscom when the iPhone 4S becomes available.
