Thumbs up B&YOU: carte prépayée - 13-09-2012, 08:59

Bouygues Telecom, using its other brand B&YOU has launched a new revolutionary (for France) prepaid offer!

- € 0,10/min for national calls
- € 0,05 for national SMS
- € 0,05/MB for data
- € 4.99 starting kit (including € 1,50 of credit)
...and, most important: unlimited validity, you just need to use it (paying event) at least once every 12 months.

The only drawback is that it's only sold online so it could be complicated to get it for a foreigner...

Hopefully some good person from France will soon enable foreigners to get hold of this!

Can you pay with a foreign CC and just have it shipped to a hotel?

It gets even better. They're already issuing nano-SIMs!

"Je choisis ma carte SIM en fonction de mon téléphone :
  • Carte SIM standard et micro SIM
    Compatible avec la majorité
    des téléphones
  • Carte SIM nano
    Uniquement pour iPhone 5"

One minor point - the €1.50 included credit is valid for only one month. It is the subsequent top-ups which have unlimited validity, subject to a chargeable event every year.

They don't make it easy by any means! I got myself a French address where I could send the sim card and right away I run into the next problem: they accept only pure French cards and nothing else.

Once one has got the sim card, it isn't a problem any more, because you can recharge with bouygues vouchers, but this €4,99 for the sim card really has to be paid with a French card...

Thanks for that information. I was considering using someone's French address, but it seems that I'll need to use their credit card as well, which is asking too much of a favour.

Somehow we need to order lots of these for all of us in this forum and then distribute them afterwards. However, I get the impression that the SIM card might be linked to the B&You login used to make the order. This makes ordering large quantities impractical, as a separate login will be required for each SIM card.

The other problem is that B&You doesn't have a phone number or e-mail address for non-customers, which makes it difficult to ask them for help on ordering.

I have the same thoughts, NFH.

I also don't think it is possible to order more than one sim card per account. And per account they require your passport number, etc. It al seems quite restrictive...

Are you sure, kuba.g, that B&You requires a credit card issued in France as opposed to a credit card with a billing address in France? The latter is easier to achieve.
