Sorry for writing in English here, but perhaps someone understands:

Could anyone advise me:

If I go to France and buy a French SIM card / new number there, how (from what operator) can I buy for example a prepaid week or month that would cover unlimited internet mobile connection using the same SIM card?

Basically I don't care about any specific operator, I only would like to know how to have a possibility to surf or use GPS and don't have to care about megabytes transferred or minutes spent on-line...

If there is some up-do-date webpage about this, that would be great.

Thanks for any hints.

It may not be possible... Oct 17, 2009

AFAIK to use prepaid cards for Internet browsing.

(Pas forcément possible d'utiliser des cartes prépayées pour surfer sur le Net - traduction libre).

Virgin Mobile "Tout illimité sans engagement" Oct 17, 2009

AFAIK, for the time being in France there is only Virgin Mobile's "Tout illimité sans engagement" (Unlimited without any commitment) that corresponds to your needs.

You can pay 90,90 € by Credit card to order the SIM for first month, but they will ask you a RIB (Bank identity record) in France (possible by a friend in France) as a guaranty. A few days before you leave, call them to cancel. If you forget to cancel, they will continue to take 89.90 €/month.

They say they have sb who speaks English.

http://www.virginmobile.fr/panier.htm

D'après ce que je sais, pour le moment en France il n'y a que de Virgin Mobile "Tout
illimité sans engagement " qui correspond à vos besoins.

Vous pouvez payer 90,90 € par carte de crédit pour commander la carte SIM pour le premier mois, mais Ils vous demanderont un RIB en France (possible par un ami en France) comme une garantie. Quelques jours avant votre départ, appelez-les pour annuler. Si vous oubliez d'annuler, on continue à prélever 89,90€/mois.

Ils disent qu'ils ont qqn qui parle anglais.

Hotspots FreeWifi Oct 18, 2009

Tu peux aussi essayer Hotspots FreeWifi pour naviguer gratuitement dans l'Hexagone si tu as un ami chez FREE. Il faudrait qu'il configure ton netbook ou ordinateur portable avec son Freebox HD avant.

Voir : http://www.free.fr/adsl/pages/internet/connexion/acces-hotspot-wifiFree.html

Il doit être possible chez d'autres opérateurs.

You can also try FreeWifi Hotspots to surf for free in France if your friend has FREE as his ISP. He has to set up your laptop or netbook with his Freebox HD first.

It should be possible with other ISPs.

thanks Oct 18, 2009

Thanks for all your answers!

To clarify - I have no close person in France to use their bank identity or (additional) ISP services.

I'm a bit surprised that the cheapest option should be 90 eur / month (involving bank identity trouble), because in the Czech Republic I can get the same unlimited service from one of local operators for one month for just 150 CZK, which is about 6 euro - and no-one asks about my bank account etc., I can simply buy a SIM card, "load" some credit and then order the internet service.
