* phones in France 2008 – a piece of cake

Posted by Lew Weinstein on May 10, 2008

Last year, we had great difficulty understnding how to obtain French phones and add additional minutes.

This year, it was easy.

We had purchased new mobile phones in the US, so we decided to use our old US phones in France. To do this, you first have to contact your phone company and have the phone ‘unlocked.’ Once this is done, you can insert a new SIM card and use the phone with a new mobile account.

On our first day in France, we found an Orange outlet, purchased SIM cards, and added minutes while still in the store.

More importantly, we got clear instructions from an English-speaking sales person as to how to check remaining minutes,and add more minutes, procedures that were mysteries to us last year.

So far, so good.
