You need to say you want roaming while in France for data and you have to set up a Mobile Access Point Name. You would have to do this with SFR and Orange as well, if the standard settings on the sim did not work. I have an iphone and with the registered letter respectfully requested to have it unblocked.
This did not happen. Just another example of the SFR incompetence,I received an SMS from SFR yesterday informing me if I don't pay the unpaid account within five days by credit card the service will be terminated,I assume they are refering to the old contract which was terminated last month including cancellation of the direct debit attributed to their company within the respective time delays.
I'd like to sign up with free,we already have their internet,but does anyone know when they are getting the iphone in? I'm fairly sure you would get an answer to your question directly from the company themselves. I think I remember the CEO of Free saying that until Apple starts paying there workers fairly and stops using child labor that they will not be providing Apple products.
I have looked through this thread but can't find out any information on the cost of using internet on the Is this possible? And how much are they charging? Have the sim card already and everything is working good! Just wanna know what happens if I try using it away, will i get email? Just to say for anyone interested, I have been on FREE for 2 months now and it couldn't be smoother, recommended.
Thank you. I had intial problems just with my sim card a new one was sent and I have been with Free now for just on 2 months and could not be happier. I will repeat mine. I am a happy, happy, happy with my free phone. I won't even go into the joy I have when I call someone in the US and talk and talk and talk and again no hidden fees or tricks.
FYI, Virgins unlimited trick is you can only call 90 numbers a month unlimited. SFR only When free says unlimited they mean unlimited.

I have also the freebox, so I don't pay anything , I am very satisfied. Has anyone successfully managed to buy an iPhone from them? I can log in to buy the sim but whenever i try to buy the phone a message about paying by card flashes up and i cant log in? Any help greatfully received,thanks. Hi, I'm also looking into going for the iPhone 4S with Free Mobile, but worried about taking this 'risk' given I haven't heard fab feedback about this network.
Has anyone opted for this and had a good experience? Thanks, K. I have a Iphone 4 and it works fine I have had no problems at all. Reception is fine and I travel alot and have yet to find somewhere that it does not work. I now have my sim and iPhone with them and everything is great,both arrived really fast and it was very easy to set up.
