I think the offer by Swiss GSM was the very first one, but surely not cheap and without free incoming calls (except in CH, of course). Then I think Hop Mobile was the first real International card, not connected to a local opertor. But once again no free incoming calls. More or less at the same time also United Mobile started, it was cheaper than Hop (also because at that time € was lower than $) and had no free incoming calls.

The first offer with free incoming calls was Riiing, still ownded by United Mobile, but with a different brand. I cannot remember if it was Autumn 2004.
Then 09 started, then Travelsim and at last all the IoM based simcards.
