France Prepaid SIM Card

On a moonlit night, you're standing on top of the Eiffel Tower with your boyfriend of three years, overlooking the Paris skyline. He turns to you, goes down on one knee and pulls out a diamond ring...

It's the moment you've been waiting for...

And you just can't wait to call your mother and friends back home to tell them the news!

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in France or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid France SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.

What our partner Telestial says

The prepaid SIM card for France with a world cell phone is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch while in France. All incoming calls while in France are FREE, regardless of where they originate. Pay the local rate for local calls and use your cellular phone in France like you do at home. And unlike home, your France SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for France includes:

  • ($10.00 USD) starter airtime credit
  • FREE incoming calls
  • Voicemail / WAP
  • SMS text messaging
  • Data capable (data cables and laptop/PDA may be required)
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check

Please Note: Your France SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM 900/1800 compatible international cell phone. If you do not have your own international cell phone, Telestial has several compatible models available for your review and consideration.

Global SIM Cards

Both Telestial and ekit offer a range of region specific and global SIM cards. Starting at just US$ 9 (with credit included!), these cards represent good value for travellers interested in having only one SIM card and phone number to cover multiple countries, whilst keeping roaming charges in check.
