Default SIM Card for Calls and Data - 22-06-2015, 16:57

I'll be in Paris for about a week. Any suggestions on a SIM card would be welcome. I'll need it for data, international calls and local calls. I have an unlocked Samsung Mega (US version).

Thanks!

Hi I would suggest the Bouygues XL prepaid card might suit u if it is mainly for local calls and data in France. If you plan to make lots of US calls I suspect a lycamobile sim may be a better option

As far as I know , lycamobile and lebara offer the best price for international calling.

I'm hereby using lebara, their calling rates are so surprising. Their "all in one" package gives you calling minutes, SMS and data. For the minutes, international callings are also surprisingly included.

Lebara seems to be the best. On my recent trip I used Toggle Mobile because the same SIM worked very well in the UK. Data was more expensive on Toggle (in France) but it was cheap enough for my purposes.


CA: SaskTel, Wind postpaid; Rogers, Bell postpaid iPad flex plans; US: T-Mobile postpaid data, prepaid voice; PureTalk (AT&T MVNO) prepaid voice/data; AT&T prepaid iPad plan

Hardware: Too much but notably iPhone 5, iPad Mini Retina LTE, Moto G LTE (N.A. version), iPhone 4. All unlocked.

Does anyone know how I could geta a Lebara France top up before leaving the US. I can get the SIM on eBay but would like to have enough to set up a data plan before I leave.

did you try on www.lebara.fr?
You need the SIM in your hand and activated though.


Germany: smartmobil, simquadrat, Vodafone (data)
Thailand: truemove (phone+sms+wifi), TOT 3G (data)
International: xxSim+372, toggle +44/+49/+41/+31
Phones: Huawei Mate7, Zopo ZP700

I've ordered a Sim on eBay. I was under the impression that I would need a French credit card or bank account in order to top up on Lebara.Fr.

I tried the 2nd link and it worked -- said my Sim card is on the way! I wonder if they will let me top up before I leave?
