Throughout July NATEL® easy customers will receive a 50% discount with the network operators listed above on outgoing calls dialled directly.

The introduction of a new platform by Swisscom Mobile, which will enable further innovations to be made in prepaid business, made this upgrade possible. Further operators will be added on an ongoing basis. The current list can be found on the Internet at (activated as of 6 June 2002). Please note that before leaving Switzerland all NATEL® easy customers must dial *100*11# and then press the call key to enable their mobile for direct dialling from abroad.
