Re: Getting a mobile phone before residence permit?

It would be worth getting a pre-paid of the network you want to go with on contract.

You're not likely to save much over a couple of months, and converting to contract is easier than porting the number especially if you're new. I've ported two numbers, involving all the three big providers, and all were a total shambles.

Also, if you try the pre-paid and the coverage is no good for where you use it most, you can still move to another network.
Good advice, thank you

Re: Getting a mobile phone before residence permit?

I don't think Lebara is a very good prepaid offer now. Domestic calls are very expensive. They used to be great for calling abroad but they revised their prices last year.

Of course it depends on the intended usage.
