Does anybody have any suggestions on which offer to take?

Hello,

a new secret / hidden condition has been added without warning to this offer, i lost my credit due to that !

now, credit is not kept forever even if you call or SMS or does one DATA connexion every year, you need to load new credit (minimum 10€) every 2 years !!!

after 2 SMS warnings one week and 3 days before their own date, you lost credit and maybe you can lost your number...

Thanks for that, willemijns. Still, 5 euros a year is better than any other French offer I'm aware of. It's possible that being the only French offer with generous expiration, they got a large share of "parked" numbers that weren't getting much use.

FYI: On 14th june, roaming will be forbidden with this offer (and the day after, the EU roaming law will apply we know we know we know )

they push out every prepaid cards / PAYG customers who want to use their SIM card outside France => pay a plan or leave us buddy !

1) You can still call outside France of course

2) This card still works if it stay in France

Thanks for this information! I live in the US and only use this card when I visit France occasionally. I guess that this new policy means that I won't be able to use my SIM card in the US to add a rechargement, send a text, etc. If I can't use the card in the US, then I will have no way to extend my expiration date. Do you have any ideas about a way to extend the expiration date if I'm not in France?

Well, it's the evening of the 16th here in Berlin, and my Bouygues SIM is still working fine.

And it's still working fine on roaming 10 days later. Did B&You change their mind about this? Willemijns, where was the announcement that they were going to cut off roaming?
