French sim in France

Hi all

I'm off to Paris in a few days and trying to think of a way to avoid paying an enormous bill (short of not using my phone of course!)

Is it possible to buy a French iphone pay and go sim while I'm there that will have browsing included?

I'd mainly like to be able to use the maps app and check facebook and email and stuff, not bothered about calls or texts back to uk - will just email.

Any help or thoughts gratefully received!

Sorry your Iphone is locked to an O2 uk sim.

You can use the iphone at any free wi-fi location but that will be it for free otherwise data is £3.00 a mb

Just ensure you have data roaming switched off if you do not want calls then put into airplane mode and then turn wi-fi on .
