We have returned from our wonderful trip to Swizterland! Like most of you, we cannot wait to go back! I just wanted to tell you about our cell phone purchase. We were 5 adults traveling and , for peace of mind, we purchased 2 cell phones to be used locally in Switzerland. We did this at the Orange store at Zurich airport. The entire transaction only took about 15 minutes. We bought 2 prepaid cell phones that also included SFR10 worth of minutes for 78 Swiss francs- this included minutes and texts. In 2 weeks we used them to keep track of each other when our family split up, and never had to put any more money on the phones. For 2 weeks of travel, it was a bargain and a comfort. We did not use them to call the states or other countries so I cannot address the cost of that.
Thanks to all of you for the various advice you gave me in planning the trip. It really helped!
