Otherwise, ask ChrisL , he knows a place behind NiceEtoile. Another question to Forum here - my wife has SFR several years standing and wishes to switch to free - we seem to get a very unclear picture from SFR about what the proceedure is to cancel their contract and switch the same number to free - if anyone has successfully done this I'd very much appreciate a step by step guide, and timings of their experience, particularly to avoid loss of mobile and endless marketing calls once you have decided to resiliate.
Thx in advance. First call This will give you your so-called RIO number. Don't bother writing it down, just hang up and it will be sent to you by sms. Now, when signing up for your new contract you'll be asked if you want to keep your current number. Say yes and put in the RIO you received earlier. That's it. We had 2 lines with sfr that had a base cost of 65 euros and with additional time come to between 80 to euros every month.
We have moved both to free and the quality of calls is as good as SFR. We pay 40 euros a month line rental and we will have almost zero extra charge as we can call as much as we want.
The extra is the data package which means we now access facebook and email via our phones that we did not do with sfr. Does this make sense? Have I understood this correctly? Any comments, anyone? From what I'm understanding with your orange mobile, you just order your RIO pass it on to free filling in their subscription, they will deal with the rest with orange terminating your contract and switching your number, your mobile should not go down - therefore I'd suggest move 1 in your proposed plan of action whilst in principle a good safeguard would be a waste of money and time, as simply by going to 2 for starter would get you there without loss of service, but others on this forum may wish to correct me on this.
Brianna: As thinklucky says, skip 1 and go straight to 2. Switching mobile service provider is totally painless. The only risk is that you may not receive your new SIM card before the old one is shut off this actually happened to me because La Poste was on strike , but while that was a problem in the beginning the chance of it happening now is very small.
Thanks so much for your reply. But one way or another it certainly seems like the right move I can now disconnect it but I will keep it and offer it to my guests when they are here.
But it is true you can just order your box and sim at the same time. I personally would get the box set up and then order the sim. Did everyone notice that free has dropped the prices of their phones!!! Gotta love em!!! Gonna change my name to Proud2BaFreeSlave!!!
Cause they had me at hello!!! Thanks for all the info, this was far simpler than anticipated, even SFR tent text advising when the line will be cut, in all hassle FREE. We have moved 2 sfr lines to free and it has been excellent. No issues. So far I very much like what I'm hearing.
Thought I would give you my Free story so far as there seems to be a few variations. I ordered the My However my 2 euro sim card is not working it states "invalid or missing sim" no matter what phone I but it in. My guess there is a problem with my sim. I have tried calling Free a several times and seem to get cut off or they hang up not sure. Does any one have any suggestions?
Don't get me wrong I am not complaining as up until now all ran very smoothly and have been very impressed. So far, so good. Cross family:. If the You need to check the setting on your phone.
This is quite simple if you follow the screen shots on the free help website. 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. You are billed by the second. I have also been with then for 7 years for my land line, internet and TV.
I am a FREE slave and happy about it!!! Hi, I am with Free mobile since January and it works fine. 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. The only difficulty I'm having is that I can't send or receive photos,do any of you know what I have to do so i can? I have tried free.
In half of Monaco your are offline. It should be quite easy, just dont know where to find this option. Yes, Alex, Monaco is not France free. FR , Read your terms of service or download it from the website to find out how to un-suscribe. Hi Alex,. I had orange before and it worked everywhere with no problem as it uses monaco telecom antennas Month 4 and still in love. We've had nothing but problems with free.
We each got a card and loved the price but not the service. We don't receive texts from abroad. The network is terrible in the afternoon: the line goes straight to voice mail without ringing or the call is dropped. Outgoing calls won't connect, we have to try numerous times before a call will go through. Giving it another month hopefully the company can sort things out! In which locality do you experience those issues EmondA? AlexMCai, Yes that is the address and it will get there. However even though there are these problems, IMHO they do not come close to outweighing the benefits like, much cheaper international texts and being charged by the second for my non included international calls!!
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. Clubic Shopping Bons plans Bons plans Free. La Team Clubic Bons Plans. Les meilleurs forfaits 4G sans engagement.
