After 3 days I received the 2 sim cards. And both worked perfectly. I have now 2 very inexpensive mobile phone and there is NO restrictions about termination, and there is no abonnemt of FREE mobile telephony. Hope that's help There is no doubt that the other operator will try to do everything possible to make mistakes in terms of number portability When you transfer the number from one operator to another.
I have experienced that many times when you should have the phone number from the FTC orange they now switch it off on a Friday so you have no phone all weekend.
In the past they always cut it off one of the weekdays. I cannot find the details about this. The details are marked in a link previously posted on this thread. I was reading the tarif's and one thing to watch out for is calls to Monaco mobiles are.
But other then that it seems great. I called on the phone and the guy walked me through the internet sign up very nicely. When that comes and is activated I will order my I'm doing it that way so if they cut my service over the weekend I will still have a phone. I will keep you all posted!! Anyone else have an experience they can share.
SIM arrived and worked perfectly however, my phone does seem to be sending multiple texts Does anyone know the costs for calling UK and Italian mobiles? Landlines are free however.
I have just been speaking to Orange, and said I wanted to change over to the free network.. They offered me a new 2 year contract for 49 euros a month unlimited calls in France, but nothing outside of France, this is their answer to the all in I have ordered the free sim card so I hope this works okay, but I have three months until my orange contract runs out so I should know better by then.
I also tried to lower my monthly bill but apparently you cant do this without signing up for another 12 months!! I also have a UK mobile and tried the same and they lowered the contract down to a third of what I had no problem at all.. I guess the companies here are still wanting to go for the big profits, and I suppose if they lost half their customers its cheaper than dropping to compete with free, so it does not look like they are going to get into a war with free over pricing Has anyone been using the free system?
Yes I am in the queue since Mmm,, another discussion.. I was once a free customer and I have to say they were very good with broadband and TV. What I am interested in is listening to any comments about the free mobile service, now that it has been available for a little while and people have used it are there any downsides or upsides.. To be honest for the price, which is fantastic if all works well its a winning package. I believe the masts can cope with all the calls, as it is SFR..
Even if orange can do it for 49 euros its still 2. At the moment my orange is 55 per month for 4 hours on a 1 year contract I pay an extra 6 a month for a 1 year contract.
I know you dont get a phone from free but who really cares, you can buy a sim free phone cheaply , and its not that its too cheap its that other operators are making a killing, and no one has had the guts to take them on until now.. SO,,, anyone been using their free mobile sim??? I've got my Sim card, kept my old phone number, Free took care of everything. It took them 2 weeks to send the card, but then as a former Orange customer I'm used to so much worse. As far as I'm concerned, win win situation.
Also, I have been calling customer service a couple of times and they helped me right away, again, I'm used to so much worse from Orange. Can't wait until the rest of familys contracts are up so I can switch them, too.
Thankyou ange03 that's what I like to hear, I also cant wait, I have had bills up to euros from Orange and it is frightening, they just run away with charges,, I must say everyone I know has said they are going to change also at the end of their contracts as it seems that a lot of people have had bad experiences also.
I have been a Free client for 7 years and think they have one of the best customer services around. I'm not saying that it is perfect, but for France pretty close. But when I put it into my phone I found that it does not work in Monaco. Apparently you are roaming in Monaco and it only works in France.
