Phone

How can I use my phone in France and Europe?

 

 

As an international student you have two main options in order to use a phone here: you can either pay simcard ( that gives you a limited amount of calls/sms that have to be used in a certain period of time) or get a monthly subscription.

 

 

We would advise you to get a monthly subscription as it is more costwise. But make sure that your subscription is free of commitment (in other words that you don’t have to pay something when you unsubscribe).

 

Here is a list of some monthly packages that we advise you to take:

  • 4,99€ per month : 2 hours of calls in France and from Europe, unlimited text messages and 50 Mo of Internet.
