Or my favorite, if I need to call in about my Freebox, I call with my cell and then I do not have to pay for the call!! My Solution: check voice mail more often the call is dropped Why: I don't really know why, but this rarely happens and this happened with bouygtel as well.
So when you try to make a call if there is a high demand at that moment we Free people get but to the back of the line, but again I had this problem with bouygtel but maybe a little more often now. I hope this helps. Thanks for your suggestions, MelaNice. We're in Nice. As for "fighting the power" other companies have already dropped their rates. In addition to EmondA's points: the data plan does not work in certain European countries which is ridiculous.
Then however I get stuck with a screen that says 'SIM verrou'? I have checked on my account page on the Free site and it shows that all should be well and the account active.
How do I get thru this screen? The phone was originally purchased on a 'pay as you go' SFR plan - is this where the problem is? Do you need to buy a new phone to use with the Free SIM? Cheers all! Looks like your phone is SIM locked. There is a great place halfway down the Boulevard Carnot in Cannes on the right as you head toward the town who will unlock it for between 15 and 30 Euros depending on the brand. I still have a couple of questions: 1 I take it the SIM card will work in an unlocked MIFI router and sharing the connection shouldn't be an issue as long as you stay within the 3GB download limit?
Presumably using their hotspots have no impact on your 3GB data allowance? Has anyone cancelled yet and is it straightforward to stop the direct debit payments? Many people have asked for such a solution. As a Freenaute, you already get WiFi hotspot codes. I don't know how you receive similar codes if you are a SIM-only customer. Maybe you don't? I would share exactly the same presumption. ChristopherL, thanks for the reply.
I've already jumped the gun on the Mifi router by purchasing one locally I'm not in France yet. I will try and setup a direct debit to my account at home - at least I can deal with my local bank in English rather than struggle with our French bank when it comes to cancelling. I'll bet you anything you like that you cannot use a non-French bank I already tried. The reason is that Free is very heavily automated and their systems expect the bank details in strict RIB format.
You are right, it's national bank account numbers only they don't accept an IBAN number with a country prefix. I just have to wait and see what the next steps are when the SIM arrives in post. Hey guys, I'm moving to France for a year in a couple months and I think I'm going to bring my Galaxy S2 over and sign up with Free Mobile, my question is, can I sign up for the sim now so I have it when I get there or do I need to wait till I'm in France to sign up for this service?
I'd call but my French isn't the best and long distance charges would kill me. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance. Hi, you can sign up for it before you leave for France. I ordered mine on 15th June, got billed for it on the 18th, and it was marked shipped the next day but still no sign of it, I'm starting to get a little worried its gone missing in the post.
Much better to do this online than calling - it is all very straightforward. Hi, does anybody have an email contact for Free. My sim card never arrived and my French is definitely not up to a technical conversation. As far as I am aware there isn't a direct contact email address,take a look at these links and see if you can find a solution. Looking at the dates you mention I would suggest maybe waiting another week or so,failing that I reckon a possible way forward would be a telephone call to the number by someone who could explain the situation.
Hi all, I've been with free for 6 months and have never been able to receive SMS from overseas. Does everyone else have this problem? Ive contacted free a few times and they have not been able to offer me any solutions..
They can't call me from abroad either. I haven't as yet attempted talking to Free yet but have been summoning up courage to call the support because techy stuff in french isn't exactly my forte. Very disheartening to hear that Free can't rectify it for you. What to do. Any ideas anyone please? I have had my Free sim card I don't want to be caught out again. I had a mobicard for years and never had any trouble.
Hi, I have the same problem. Mine lost service after a week in the uk, don't know if this is normal Came back as soon as we hit Calais. Discussions General Free Mobile Recent Discussions. Free Mobile ChristopherL It's a great offer.

To keep your existing phone number you need a RIO which you can get from your old operator. Ras The biggest crime of the other mobile operators in France, in my opinion, is the expiration of pre-pay credit, and the expiration of the line.

I had to compete with a lot of people for attention because people could not figure out how to use the kiosks. About the automated kiosks- at the time, the instructions were only in French.
I used Google Translate to figure some of it out but ended up asking for help. If you have to use the online services for any reason, it is only in French obviously, just be prepared for that.

Hi Lani, Thanks so much for the detailed information on Free, especially about the customer service situation. This is very helpful! After 5 days my 4G internet drop to 3G and stay with 3G for the rest of the trip, very annoying that I used the internet to navigate while driving. How do I know it will take 10 days?

It was a bad decision from the start. You have to buy from a Tobac shop, which happened to have an English speaker to help us set up the phone. However, when I got to my hotel, I discovered I could not use the internet service I had purchased.
Despite their limited English, I believe they understood the problem, but were unable to help me resolve it. Casey mobile. Good luck!!
