If you wind up not being able to get a SIM before you leave, and if you find it difficult to find one at CDG--it is a very spread out airport and services are not evenly distributed it...

Hi Don,

If you're anxious about setting it up right (I know I was the first time I did this), just go to one of the providers' shops--Orange, Bouygtel, SFR--to buy the SIM start-up kit, and ask...
