Was ein guter fuer Plan das Handy ist... ?

Hallo,

I am looking at cell phone providers, and i am not sure which one is best. I need one for my iPhone from the USA. Any suggestions for making calls, texting, and somewhat of a data plan (not unlimited like in the USA)?

Danke.

There are literally hundreds of mobile phone plans from tens of providers available in Germany. It's a jungle of tariffs out there and you have to decide whether you want to spend hours of reading convoluted fineprint to save just a few Euros per month.
In my opinion, unles you want to get a subsidized phone with your plan, it makes no sense to commit to a year or more contract - better go for pre-paid cards with monthly plans that start at EUR5 - 15 for a packet of Minutes/SMS and GB, or EUR15-35 for an Alnet-Flat (meaning you can call and sometimes send SMS or even surf as much as you want)!

Thank you. I was hearing family in Germany mention this too however in the USA we are so use to being committed to a contract that i was completely shocked by how many do the prepaid method in Germany.

I use netzclub, had no issues with it.
