Prepaid or Contract for the Cell Phone

You can sign a contract for your cell phone if you have a residence permit. This permit is necessary for the registration. There are two options:

  • Prepaid card: You always have to top up this card with a credit, for example 5€ or 10€. When the cash amount is used up, you can recharge it. This way you can always see how much money you are spending.
  • Contract with a monthly fee: Here you have a fixed monthly amount that you always have to pay every month, regardless of whether you use the phone or the Internet or not. Most contracts run for 24 months. On top of that, there’s often a monthly additional fee when you chose a cell phone at the beginning of your contract. So be careful: Here you have relatively high costs over a long period of time.

    If you don’t cancel your contract in time, it will automatically be extended by one or two years.

Internet Connection at Home

If you have your own apartment, you can can enter into a contract for an Internet connection, for example with the municipal utilities.

100 Mbit are usually enough.
