  Because many of our customers have struggled with registration issues with the Orange France SIM Card, we strongly recommend you consider our SFR International SIM Card for France.  The SFR International SIM Card for France is a native French SIM Card and only charges 39 US cents per minute to call back to the USA from France but has the ability to be used all over Europe and inexpensive rates.

This Orange Mobile SIM Card For France Includes:

An Orange Mobile SIM card to fit your phone.
Free incoming calls.
A local French phone number while in France.
No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check.
Voice mail, WAP, and text messaging.

Domestic Rates:

Domestic rates for Paris and throughout France are per minute for outgoing calls within France (while you are in the France). All incoming calls are free, regardless of where they originate.  Your Orange SIM card allows you to choose from between 2 calling plans however the default Classique plan is usually best. Per minute airtime rates, which vary depending on which airtime voucher you purchase, are as follows:

Your cell phone number will be dynamically assigned to your cellular phone once you arrive in France by simply following the instructions outlined below:

Be sure that battery is charged
Insert the SIM card into the mobile phone*
Turn on your phone
Set you cell phone to the GSM 900/1800 frequency (as needed)
Dial 225 to receive your phone number and call credit
Start calling **

Customer service for your France Orange prepaid SIM card is available 24 hr./day by dialing 722 at any time from your France cellular phone or 0892 701 722 from a landline phone in France.

*You will need to snap out the thumbnail sized France SIM card along the perforated edge of its holder and then insert the France SIM card into your international cell phone with the gold contacts of the France SIM card facing the metal contacts of your international cellular phone.

**When calling overseas from the United States to your France cellular phone number callers will need to dial 011 followed by the country code 33 and then your France cell 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.

Adding Credit:

To credit your France SIM card with additional airtime you will need to purchase Orange recharge cards. These scratch cards may be in purchased in 15 Euro 25 Euro or 35 Euro (includes 45 Euro of credit) denominations at most convenience stores, tabac shops and petrol stations throughout France.

Orange recharge cards are available at face value and so a 15 Euro airtime voucher will cost you 15 Euro and subsequently will credit your Orange SIM card for 15 Euro.

To charge the France SIM chip with an airtime voucher proceed as follows:

1. Rub off the gray protective layer.

2. A 14-digit number will be revealed.

3. Dial 224 from your own mobile phone then follow the instructions.
