Not sure... how can one with a billing address in France be achieved? Should you have (access to) such a card, do let me know then we can test it.

It's easy enough to change the billing address for many credit cards, particularly a card that is marketed across borders. Unfortunately B&You doesn't accept American Express, otherwise that would be an easy one to try. The problem is that I don't have a French address any more.

My understanding is that the restriction (which applies for quite a few things, not just telephony) is based on the country of the issuing bank, not the billing address.

This card is impossible to get without a French debit or credit card. I have tried everything.

I also tried ordering a B&You monthly contract SIM, which asks for bank details (Relevé d'Identité Bancaire). As I have a French bank account (but no card), I have the necessary RIB. I got to the end of the order process and was asked to pay €1 by credit card, so I abandoned the order. When I went back into my B&You user account, I discovered that I had an open order with a 9-digit order number, despite not having paid the €1. You can't speak to B&You on the phone without entering an order number, so I took the opportunity to phone them on +33 9 81 66 26 66. They cancelled the order for the monthly contract SIM, and then tried to find ways for me to order a prepaid card. They confirmed that it is not possible to order a prepaid card with a non-French bank card or even with a French RIB. The latter is used only for a monthly contract, and they confirmed it is not even possible to buy a monthly contract SIM and then convert it to prepaid.

I can get a Carte Bleue debit card from my French bank at a cost of €40. I really resent paying this rip-off fee to French banks; illogically they charge for debit cards but not for cheques. However, if enough people here want a B&You prepaid card, then I'll get a Carte Bleue and we can split the cost.

I'd be very thankful if somebody could help me getting one of these SIMs.

@NFH
Are you sure you can order that many prepaid SIMs with the same bank card? I assume that SIMs are being automatically registered when ordering and there may be a limitation of how many SIM cards a single person may buy. Even if it was possible to buy a bunch of SIMs do you want all those SIM cards to run under your name and to have a common account for the customer portal? Also fraud prevention measures or verification procedures may hinder you from ordering SIMs under different identities but with the same bank card.

@inquisitor I think the CC/debit card is only required for payment.

The SIMs will be registered under the B&You user account (e-mail address) used to order each SIM. We will need a separate B&You user account per order. Therefore everyone participating will need to create a user account in their name and set a temporary password that can be divulged to me.
