My husband looks like being offered a job in Geneva. He's French and I am British and we have three children (ages 7,6 and 4) who are already in school in Brittany so they are used to the French schooling system and language. It looks too expensive for us to live in Geneva but is there a good place to live in France that is within good commuting distance of Geneva and not too pricey? (Is this wishful thinking?!) I've heard Annecy is nice but we are used to a more rural life so if there are any nice villages/small towns it would be good to know about them. I would like to have a garden! Any advice you could give would be brilliant - thank you!! FloraG

Hi there,Does anyone have any idea how many English nationals are resident either temporarily or permanently in the Geneva area. I am a lawyer thinking of opening an office in Geneva - any excuse to move my office from London - but specialise in English family and media law.Thank you.Matt
Hi Folks, I am considering enrolling for an online or part time MBA program. The Swiss Management Centre offers an online MBA program at very affordable rate, but I read mixed reviews about their accreditation. As per their website, they are accredited by the ACBSP and ECRE, but some reviews say they are not authorized to grant degrees by the Swiss government. Anyone out there who can shed some light on this? Any graduates from the school who can provide me with some concrete info to make a decision? Thanks in advance.

I started with MBudget pay as you go and found the network and prices pretty good, just over 6 months ago I went on a contract with Orange as I needed an upgrade / e-mail on my phone etc. for work. Since then I have had nothing but problems: the coverage in my flat is terrible (400m from Geneva train station), I constantly get messages saying I have missed calls and I have had extortionate roaming charges - 14chf / minute on one call!! The customer service is very bad too- I have complained several times but not been refunded the charges. Every bill comes to about double my monthly plan price (mostly due to roaming charges, I travel a few days per month) After my 3rd complaint about the network Orange finally admitted there is a problem close to my home and agreed to release me from the contract with no cost. It is such a relief to be rid of them though I am waiting for the change back to MBudget now and won't believe it's the end of the problems until I have switched over and paid the final bill. In short- if you are deciding which network you want please save yourself a lot of problems and avoid Orange. Swisscom / MBudget is great, I've heard decent reports about Sunrise too. Also beware of Lebara / Lyca etc -the per minute rate is great but they charge a "call set-up fee" for each call- typically 28 cents so fine if you talk to someone abroad for an hour, not so good for a series of 20 second calls to other swiss phones.
