The 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 have trouble establishing a data connection you can simply enter websfr (lower case) in the APN field of your connection settings. GPRS Data rates for web browsing and emailing 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)
The main advantage of this package is that you can 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. Then you will pay simply for your usage.
How does it work? Contact us to activate this option on your line and walk you through the activation process. You will then be able to send and receive your emails. It is that simple. Or, if you already have an existing line with us, simply contact us before your departure to activate this option.
The option is only $0.50 per day. Tell us if you are a BlackBerry Internet Service user or if you are a BlackBerry Enterprise Server user. Then you 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
