Switzerland Prepaid SIM Card

On a two-week trip to Switzerland, you take a one day class on the art of yodelling.

You never knew you had it in you, but boy can you yodel!

Your mother will be so proud. Luckily, with your phone you can give her an instant recital.

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Switzerland or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Switzerland SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.

What our partner Telestial says

A prepaid Switzerland SIM card with a GSM international cell phone is the most convenient and economical calling solution while you travel in Switzerland. The Switzerland SIM card includes FREE incoming calls with service across Switzerland. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in Switzerland like you do at home. And unlike home, your Switzerland SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for Switzerland includes:

  • $21.00 (CHF 25) starter airtime credit
  • FREE Incoming Calls
  • A local cell phone number in Switzerland
  • Voicemail
  • SMS / MMS (text messaging/multimedia)
  • GPRS
  • Per second billing
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check

Please Note: Your Switzerland SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM 900/1800 compatible international cell phone. If you do not have your own international cell phone, Telestial has several compatible models available for your review and consideration.

Global SIM Cards

Both Telestial and ekit offer a range of region specific and global SIM cards. Starting at just US$ 9 (with credit included!), these cards represent good value for travellers interested in having only one SIM card and phone number to cover multiple countries, whilst keeping roaming charges in check.

  • Make calls from over 150 countries worldwide
