See all. Re: Free Mobile. Destination Expert for Paris, Loire Valley. Reply to: Free Mobile. The Free internet boxes require a one-year contract where you pay a reduced tariff during the first year, after which the price increases , except for the Delta and Delta S boxes which don't come with a commitment.
It comes with the following:. The Crystal Freebox package comes with Internet and a fixed telephone line and includes:. As far as tariffs go, prices vary from one box to another and depend on how long you have been subscribed. Look out for Free internet promotions , too. Customer reviews for Free Mobile France - as is the case for all providers - are mixed. Here is a quick summary of what customers say about Free:. Free does not currently offer English-speaking customer service. 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. La Team Clubic Bons Plans.
