Cell phone service

I just arrived and am curious what cell phone service provider to use for my wife and I. I use several Gbs of data each month and my wife uses less than 1 Gb. We brought unlocked iPhones with us so we just need SIM cards and to know what provider to use.  Thank you

Welcome to Germany!   My suggestion is to go to various carriers and get a pre-paid SIM.  The reason for doing this is to test the various carriers in the areas where you are going to be the most.  One thing I learned early on is that a carrier may work great at one location, and not work at all at another location.  By getting a pre-paid SIM, you are not locking yourself into a contract with a carrier that doesn't work in the areas you want.  Just get the cheapest amount you can get on the pre-paid.  Once you find the carrier that does the job, you can get yourself a contract.

I used Vodafone and Aldi Talk while I was in Germany.  I never got a contract because I am not a power user of my phone, so having a pre-paid was far less expensive for me than any contract I could have gotten.
