Swisscom vs Orange vs Sunrise signal strength... opinions please.

Well, the time has come to get rid of my horrible Swisscom corporate contract, and get something different and cheaper. I send a lot of SMS per month and Swisscom at 0.20CHF per text is absolutely crucifying me. I have my sights set on two contracts, from Orange:

Xtreme Surf Unlimited:http://www1.orange.ch/residential_products_price-plans_x-treme.html
  • Unlimited SMS
  • 1GB data
  • Only 44 CHF per month.
Optima Plus http://www1.orange.ch/residential_products_price-plans_optima.html
  • Automatically chooses the best tariff depending how you use the phone
  • Calls to any 3 Preferred Numers on any Swiss network for free
  • All calls from Switzerland to all mobile- and fixed line networks in Europe and the USA are charged at the Swiss local rate
The thing that turns me on about Orange, aside from the reasonable prices, is the fact I can get a 12-month contract. I personally hate being tied into long 24-month ones.

I will be getting a phone that will primarily be a heavy uber-gadgety data device, so 3G coverage is a must in and around Zurich. Also important is signal strength for basic calls while outside Zurich and maybe up the odd mountain.

So... can anyone please comment on the signal strength of Orange vs Swisscom? Also of interest would be Sunrise, but more for curiousity's sake.
