Mobile Abo for calls/sms only under 10.-?

I'm looking for second mobile phone line for work, that only needs to accept calls and (because sms is expected with 07x numbers) sms, but definitely no data. I'm using a dumb flip phone anyway - a modern one so network obsolescence isn't an issue. But I can't afford more than 10.- per month. Prepaid would surely cost me more than that per month as well with the ridiculous per minute/day charges.

The cheapest I can find is Das Abo from Swiss Post/Salt for 14.95. But this still includes 4GB data, so I suspect there's still a cheaper calls/sms only plan hidden somewhere in a dusty corner of a provider's website. Anyone know of one?

Mucho thanks.

I saw that one and am considering it. But the unlimited calls seem to only apply to the Salt network. I'm afraid I'd still see quite an excess of fees with calls to other networks. The 30 min outside the Salt network included is worth chf 7.50 alone in prepaid fees though. So this is definitely better than a prepaid plan.

When you say you only want to accept calls and SMS, you mean actually that you want to make and send SMS too, right?

I only really need to make and accept calls. But people expect 07x numbers to receive SMS, so I would probably need to have that capability, too. Otherwise Im sure I would miss attempts to contact me.
