If someone woke you up in the middle of the night, even half-asleep, it’s likely that you could reel off a list of reliable mobile phone operators in your home town. But what about in France?
Our experience has shown that 90% of students who move to France do not even think about which SIM card they will purchase on arrival. Really, what could be easier?
Probably, buying a SIM in your home country is very simple. You go to the mobile operator shop and buy a SIM card with your passport details. The sales assistant will suggest a good plan. Actually, the other plans this operator offers don’t see to differ that much.
In France, everything is different. Registering your SIM card means concluding a long-term contract with the mobile operator. What’s more, it’s not even that simple. For example, you will not be able to enter into a cost-effective long-term contract without a French Bank account. Some operators will want to make sure that you plan to stay in France for a long time and will ask you for a copy of your visa or confirmation of place of residence.
Overall, the process of registration can be rather long. In some cases, you will your SIM card by mail a week later, if the letter doesn’t get lost. Now, the challenge is getting to grips with the local tariffs. French marketing specialists are very creative people. It is highly likely that the standard booklet of available mobile phone plans will contain no less than five unknown variations.
