Ive contacted free a few times and they have not been able to offer me any solutions.. They can't call me from abroad either.
I haven't as yet attempted talking to Free yet but have been summoning up courage to call the support because techy stuff in french isn't exactly my forte. Very disheartening to hear that Free can't rectify it for you. What to do. Any ideas anyone please? I have had my Free sim card I don't want to be caught out again. I had a mobicard for years and never had any trouble.

Incoming calls when abroad are 0. Drumcondra Hi. To keep your existing phone number you need a RIO which you can get from your old operator. Ras The biggest crime of the other mobile operators in France, in my opinion, is the expiration of pre-pay credit, and the expiration of the line.
Ras I meant the mobile cellular data. Thanks Like. ChristopherL Free are very easy to find. Their mobile deal is explained here ;. ChristopherL Free are using Orange infrastructure so your experience with Orange should prevail.

MelaNice I have been a Free client for 7 years and think they have one of the best customer services around.
MelaNice Ok so my friend ordered hers on the 25th of Jan and was told that her portability would happen on the 17th of Feb but she had not received her sim, so her line when dead at about 3 PM of Friday.
Crossfamily Try calling them in the middle of the day if you can as I have called them twice just recently and did not wait any longer than a couple of rings. K I ordered mine the day they announced the new policy and received the SIM card about a week after that, I have been using it fore more than 3 weeks and I have to say it is a bit disapointing.

Thanks for any help in advance PhilP Like. MelaNice Stuart06, If you cancel it yourself don't you risk losing your number?? MelaNice Here's a brief summary of my experience. MelaNice Good question ThinkLucky! Floridian I would walk into the SFR shop and ask. Depanordique thinklucky: Do not cancel your current contract with SFR, your new provider will do it for you.
TomTom We had 2 lines with sfr that had a base cost of 65 euros and with additional time come to between 80 to euros every month. BBCradio Like. Depanordique Brianna: As thinklucky says, skip 1 and go straight to 2.
Brianna Thanks so much for your reply. TomTom We have moved 2 sfr lines to free and it has been excellent. Crossfamily Thought I would give you my Free story so far as there seems to be a few variations.
I will update when I have more news. Louise and Dave signed up for the 20 euro offer for myself and the 2 euro offer for my son. TomTom Cross family: If the GreenLeaf I think I remember the CEO of Free saying that until Apple starts paying there workers fairly and stops using child labor that they will not be providing Apple products. RollerGirl I have looked through this thread but can't find out any information on the cost of using internet on the Many thanks, in advance Like.
TomTom see page 27 onwards for data costs abroad with the A rolling contract is a kind of hybrid tariff between pre- and postpaid: You pay in advance and have cost control like prepay, but you have to enable an automatically recurring payment system known as auto-pay in the US.
This can be linked e. But the contract can be terminated at any time by free will. You can change the plan monthly, but usually you can't turn off automatic plan renewal completely to pause.
That means that you have to pay a certain amount every month, even if you don't use the SIM card at all that specific month.
These rolling contracts normally give you a much better rate for data in France than regular prepaid cards. The problem is the payment system that is often not accessible to foreigners without French credit cards or bank accounts.
Creating a French payment system will set you back more than 40 EUR. To draw a line here, offers which are confirmed to have been purchased at least by a single non-French payment system are shown while providers requiring French-only requisites are taken off the list. Please have this in mind, when you add an offer, that it needs to be accessible for foreigners too. Some French providers apply the new regulations, but large data plans may be capped and others have stopped offering international roaming at all for their prepaid products.
For specifics about the new regulation check European Union chapter and every provider below. The French section was restructured to be in line with other countries.
The first part consists of the 4 MNOs in the order described above. This is followed in the 2nd part by all resellers, MVNOs or other providers listed in alphabetical order.
The last part is devoted to rental agencies, again sorted in alpha order, who rent SIM cards, routers or other devices for those travellers who prefer to rent. The order of this listing does not represent any kind of ranking or recommendation.
There are other MVNOs too, but they don't offer good data rates so far. On the other hand you get your number, before you depart and your card is activated to use your service as soon as you arrive.
Triple-cut mini, micro, nano SIM are available. The bonus of that is that the card will work straight away and has 5 EUR of credit. If you buy from anywhere else, you will have to send in a copy of your ID and it can take several days to be able to access data. Be warned that Orange Boutiques may be crowded and you can't just grab an item off the shelf and activate it yourself.
It may take an hour or more of waiting before you get assistance to set things up. If you don't know French, it can be a bit daunting as it seems every menu presents options you can purchase. It is definitely over-complicated, just as every French site. To add credit to your SIM, buy one of the classic recharge vouchers " Les recharges classiques " from a tabac shop, magazine shop, or grocery store the big ones like Monoprix, Franprix, etc.
These are common everywhere, including airports and train stations at CDG international terminal, you can buy them at the Relay newspaper stand at the RER-B station. To add credit, dial then find the " recharger " option and enter the digit code. If you plan on going to a boutique to buy a SIM, you can purchase these packs called recharges there too. It's recommended that you load the recharge options page on your phone beforehand so you can show them exactly what you want. Some stores have employees who are not familiar with the packs or may not even know that data is available for pre-paid so it is helpful to show them the site, particularly if your French is not very good.
To obtain your free password you need to dial They offer different recharge schemes that give data for a certain period and validity of the SIM for a longer period:.
Their promotions are not permanent and you'll pay 6 to 10 times as much when they are not on. Furthermore, French recharges can't be seen as top-ups as they are more like packs or plans that start from the moment you have recharged. They are not like value topped up on an prepaid account to be used anytime in the future.
