I was happy with the 29.- Das Abo from the post office through salt. For 29 I was getting no contract, 10GB in CH, unlimited calls and texts from CH to almost anywhere in the world, and no roaming. I only use 1-3 GB/month typically, but I do make calls and SMS to numbers abroad form CH.
Over the holidays, I traveled abroad and missed two calls that were sent to voicemail. This cost me 5.56 CHF (each calls was charged once for receiving a call, and once more as if I placed a call to my voicemail.) I didn’t even answer the calls because I knew how outrageous the call charges were while abroad.
Salt told me this was perfectly normal, and you get charged because technically, the call goes from CH to the country you are in, back to CH to your voicemail. This is so outrageous that it’s not even funny. Never ever did I experience this with any other carrier the world over: missed calls are, of course, never charged. But not with Salt.
The only solution, I was told, is to disable my voicemail every time I go abroad (very convenient) or pay 20.- extra per month for a plan that includes roaming. Neither are acceptable solutions.
Anyway, I’m looking to drop Salt since they won’t refund these charges. What are you using, and what do you recommend?
