Question prepaid 3G SIM for data only - 1 week in Paris & surroundings - 24-08-2013, 18:15

Hi,

Planning a 1 week visit to Paris & surroundings.
I have a 3G iPad2 and want to purchase a data SIM card with a 500MB-1GB data package.
No need for test messages/voice.

On previous visits to France I purchased the Carrefour SIM card for my iPad2 (had to cut the regular SIM down to a micro SIM, the sales lady almost fainted...).
Now after browsing through their Web site it seems that they do not have this option any longer?


Regarding the Orange offer, I understand that I'll have to pay 10 Euros for 500MB valid for 1 month (the recharge internet mobile)?
What exactly do I need to ask for in order to get this type of SIM card and data package? (unless there's a better option).

I need the simplest option, so that I'll be out of the store as soon as possible (last year I purchased an Orange card near Calais, took me more than 1 hour...).

Thanks.

France is almost as bad as France for having to jump through hoops to get a working data SIM card

Myself I use EuropaSIM (Europa SIM-Card - Mobiles Internet in Europe, jederzeit, überall - ab ? 2 pro Tag ) across Europe, owing to its 500MB per day for 3 euros rate - I think you get 25 mins of calling as part of the deal - which is great for `it just works' data facilities.

Hope this info helps...

Question Their Web site is down since they are on vacation - 26-08-2013, 11:34

I'll read the details there in a few days.

But in the meantime - does this SIM have an expiry date, as all prepaid SIMs have?
In this case it's no use to me.

Thanks.

Strange that a Web site is shut down for days due to a vacation.
What about customer service for existing customers?
