Aldi Mobile Switzerland, just Aldi Mobile, and not to be confused with ALDImobile in Australia or Aldi Talk in Germany and the Netherlands, is a Sunrise MVNO.

Because Sunrise is not active in Liechtenstein, unlike Swisscom and Salt Mobile Switzerland, you cannot use your Aldi Mobile SIM card for free in Liechtenstein (you will be charged roaming rates instead, which are not low).

This is what you will learn about Aldi Mobile:

Coverage – Aldi Mobile Switzerland

Aldi Mobile is a Sunrise Switzerland MVNO, meaning Aldi Mobile uses the Sunrise Switzerland network and does not have its own mobile infrastructure.

To find out what to expect in terms of coverage with Aldi Mobile, jump to the Sunrise Switzerland Coverage section in my Switzerland SIM card buying guide.

SIM Card Price – Aldi Mobile Switzerland

You can get an Aldi Mobile SIM card for 9.99 CHF with 20 CHF credit in Aldi stores.

Aldi Mobile has no eSIMs.

Note that the Swiss mobile operators require your identification (EU ID/passport) for (future) eSIMs and for physical SIM cards.

You can consider getting a travel eSIM for Switzerland, which can, in specific scenarios, be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Swisscom.

Especially if you get a Europe-wide eSIM (for when you visit at least two or more supported European countries) or a global eSIM (for frequent travelers visiting multiple continents).

In my Switzerland eSIM buying guide, I analyze various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

But I will introduce them here quickly:

  • Airalo: Pilatus Mobile (Switzerland only), Eurolink (39 countries in Europe) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + up to 200 worldwide minutes & 200 worldwide SMS) – use code APR15 (15% off – first-time users only) or APR10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Switzerland & Europe (32 countries) – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Switzerland & Europe (32 countries) – all variants in both options include unlimited data + up to 120 Europe-wide calls – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Switzerland, Europe (30 or 35 countries, depending on the variant) & Global (109 or 139 countries, depending on the variant) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

Once again, check out my Switzerland eSIM buying guide to learn more about these eSIM options.

Note that Aldi Mobile offers VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G)) if your phone supports it and you have enabled it in the settings.

Oh, you can also use VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi).
