Default Joe Mobile - 27-07-2013, 08:03

Seems not be mentioned yet in this section? Is this offer not a big deal? Afaik Joe Mobile is using SFR to provide service. All you can eat with 3 GB for 20€ a month. Sounds pretty good. Somebody sells the card on amazon. Are there other ways to purchase a sim card? Except online...

Maybe because it's not a prepaid offer

I don't think so.

It is explicitly written that it's a postpaid offer ("forfait" in French means that)

Well, yes, but it also says sans engagement, so it's not like a long contract. Like many prepaid offers nowadays, with monthly bundles, it's like a hybrid somewhere in between.

The monthly arrangement will auto-renew by default, but it can also be switched off, then the SIM cannot make any active/outgoing use but will still receive text messages (incoming calls, I'm not sure yet.)

So for someone visiting once, or who foresees repeat visits in under 6 months, it might be an interesting option.

I have had a SIM for just over a week, and I regret I didn't discover it a few weeks earlier, or it could have been useful then as well.

The monthly selection can be added to mid-month, which might be a little unusual for things like this, so for instance I have 1 GB selected, but can add more if people get carried away with data use on a joint family visit from next week.

There is a referral scheme, which gives bonus credit to both new customer and referrer, so anyone interested might contact me. N.b. Joe itself will post only to a French address, but some members of its community are willing to post to abroad (so go there and ask).

Forgot to say: Joe accepts foreign credit/debit cards, initially only from countries bordering France, but maybe(?) with addition(s?) since e.g. Netherlands

The bold part is the most interesting thing about Joe, and without that it couldn't be an interesting option for foreigners (especially in this forum)

For frequent travellers to France it is surely an interesting option (but I'll keep my B&You anyway ). You can activate their bundle for just a month (30 days) and suspend it for a maximum of 6 months, with a French, Italian, Spanish, Belgian or Swiss (?) card. Will keep an eye on Joe.

Thanks for this thread it seems an excellent offer now that BoT have pulled thier B&you prepaid service. Heading over to Joe to register on thier forum to request a godfather card.

It appears that Virgin has a plan that matches the Joe 20 EUR plan - Forfaits Sans engagement Idol - Virgin Mobile - and I believe that Virgin Moible SIM cards can be bought at retail.
