I live in Switzerland and I have an unlocked 1.1.4 iPhone (not 3G).
The iPhone 3G is sold in Switzerland with the phone carrier Swisscom.
I have swisscom SIM card.
What happens if I virginize the iPhone and upgrade to 2.0? Will it work with my swisscom SIM card?
Hi there, is it possible to buy an iPhone in Swizterland without a subscription ?
What's the price then and is it locked to the provider ?
It's possible to buy a prepaid iPhone for 516 CHF (swiss francs). But it's SIM locked.
I can't sell them because every Swisscom shop is sold out :(
I made a reservation and they'll let me know when new iPhones are available.
Is a possible for a foreign person to buy a 3G in swiss ?
Also is it limited to one per person ?
Hi - im from denmark and drove trough swiss yesterday with three friends.
We all bourght an iphone (where there 6.15 - openede 6.30 - nr. 116 i line ;))
We had to show our passport.
Now we are just waiting for an unlock ;)
came from germany - at 7:00 am there were 30 People waiting in line. I decided to buy a white 16GB or nothing. One and a half hour later I've got the black 8GB - 16GB are totally sold out! Did not want to leave without 3G - had one day vacation and 150km one way from germany to swizerland. Later on nobody has been waiting outside the swisscom store, but 100m away there have been waiting about 40 People in front of the orange store. The Phonehouse store was at 07:00 am totally sold out. The Letec Apple Reseller had an commercial for iphone, but when opening at 9.00 am the employe told the waiting people that they did not got any iPhone and will not get next days. To bad for the boys left the queue from swisscomstore when noticing the rumors that 16GB are sold out. If you're interested - I've paid 59,70 Euro tax at the austrian border.
Hmm.... so, what is the procedure to buy an Iphone nowdays from a swisscom shop?
(No contract, I'm a swiss citizen living outside Switzerland...)
I mean, do you have to reserve an iphone somehow because it seems they ran out of stock?
I intend to pass through Switzerland @ the end of the month (don't know yet if it's through Geneva or Zurich)?
I can't wait to put my hand on a new Iphone...only 500 Chf...... thought it will be more :)
Yes, every swisscom shop is sold out (swisscom is the only provider that sells the iPhone without contract at 516 Fr. The orange price is higher: more than 700 Fr)
Friday 11th I made a reservation so I'll know when they are receiving new pieces. I'll post here any news. However, the employee told me that they will be selling only iPhones *with* contract "for a while".
Also, keep in mind that in switzerland by law every SIM card (even a prepaid SIM card) must be associated to a person. So they'll be forced to ask you for your personal information and register them
