  Activation Instructions
 Your International SIM Card for France will arrive fully activated and ready to use.  You will receive a Welcome Kit, with your phone number, that will provide detailed instructions about how to use your new SIM card.
  • Follow the included instructions to activate your SIM card
  • Put the International SIM Card for France into the cell phone*
  • Be sure that the battery is charged and turn on your phone
  • Enter the PIN (if prompted) which is located on the same sticker as your phone number
  • Start calling**

Simply specify during the checkout process if you will need GPRS or BlackBerry Data activated for your next trip.  You will be contacted after you place your order to find out exactly when you need data services to be active.

*Your SIM card comes attached to the back page of your information booklet.  You will need to remove it from the booklet then insert the International SIM Card for France into your international cell phone with the gold contacts of the SIM card facing the metal contacts of your international cellular phone.

**When calling overseas from the United States to your International SIM Card cellular phone number, callers will need to dial "011" followed by the country code "33" and then your International SIM Card phone number, omitting the first "0" (zero).  To call abroad from your France cell phone, simply dial "00" followed by the country code and phone number.

Please Note:  The International SIM Card gives you a France-based phone number.  If you would like to make it easier for callers from the US to reach you while traveling overseas, our SmartForward service gives you a US number that callers all over the world can dial to reach you more easily.  For more information click here.

  Service Life


Your International SIM Card will be valid for four months from activation date without additional charges or usage requirements beyond the initial SIM card cost and a $29 activation fee.  As long as you use at least $20 of airtime every four months your SIM card will never expire.  It is possible to extend the service life of your SIM card even when you do not travel; please call us for additional information. 
  Data Capabilities



The International SIM Card is 3G/GPRS enabled.  This feature is provided for free and will allow you to use the data services of your unlocked device.

If you use a PDA, Smartphone or Pocket PC running on Windows Mobile (or an equivalent open operating system on Exchange Server), you can simply insert the International SIM Card into your device, and enter websfr (lower case) in the APN field of your connection settings.  GPRS Data rates are as follows:

Within France:    $5.00 per MB (billing increment 10 kb = $0.005)

Within Europe:  $15.00 per MB (billing increment 10 kb = $0.015)

If you will be traveling outside of Europe be sure to consider using our Mobilo International SIM Card with GPRS which offers GPRS in most countries for just $20 per MB.

BlackBerry Data

If you own a BlackBerry, our services are compatible.  Use our International SIM Card with your unlocked device and keep receiving your emails while saving a bundle on all of your data and calling charges!  Until now, when you traveled abroad, you had to activate an international data plan with your current carrier.  Some providers even locked you up in a yearly subscription...but you still had to pay high roaming calling charges.

For Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) or Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) users, we propose a flexible option that allows you to activate this service for the duration of your trip.  You then will pay simply for your usage.

Don't have a BlackBerry?  See the bottom of this page for all the BlackBerry models we carry.

How does it work?  Contact us to activate this option on your line.  Then replace your current carrier's SIM card with your International SIM Card and continue sending and receiving your emails. This is that simple and no settings have to be changed.  Or, if you already have an existing line with us, simply contact us before your departure to activate this option.

The option is only $4.50 per day (10 day minimum).  Tell us if you are a BlackBerry Internet Service user or if you are a BlackBerry Enterprise Server user.  You then just pay your usage as follows:

Within France:    Unlimited Emails - $5.00 per MB for web browsing (billing increment 10 kb = $0.05)

Within Europe:  $15.00 per MB for emailing and web web browsing (billing increment 10 kb = $0.15)

Rest of the World:  $0.090 per kb for emailing and web browsing (billing increment 10 kb)

Add and remove this option to your line without limit to suit your travel needs.  Allow up to 72 hours to activate or deactivate this option.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you invoice the SIM Card service?
Whenever you use your SIM card, we bill your credit card once a month any airtime usage and data transport charges incurred from the previous month. Any additional usage charges will be billed on subsequent invoices.

Do I have to pay something when I donít travel?
No, there is absolutely no monthly or any other fee. Keep the SIM card until your next trip to Europe, and you only pay for your usage. Nothing else.

How do you invoice the Blackberry option?
The Blackberry option is charged on a daily basis and the total will appear on your monthly statement. This option can be activated and suspended without any limit while you maintain an active line.
