I am traveling to Paris in two weeks.
I have a gsm sim-unlocked android phone.
I would like to buy a sim card to use while in Paris. I will need voice and data.
I will be staying for approximately one week.
Looking online for information is confusing and uncertain.
I've turned up several resources, probably the best of which is:
France - Pay as you go sim with data Wiki
and this page also seems useful:
I tried chatting online with a cs rep at sfr.
They chatted with me in English as I requested, but there were still communication difficulties. They would not confirm that there was a 7 day unlimited internet plan- they said that I would have to go to an SFR store for that information.
SO.... can anyone tell me with some relatively recent experience, whether or not I can get:
A sim card with pay as you go calling and unlimited data for a short period of time (7 days ideally, or a month if necessary)?
And if there are any tricks like setting the APN and such, I'd be grateful to hear those too.
Here's what I can find on the sfr website that most seems to be the data plan referenced in the foodnut link:
Pretty much the last card/offer on the page reads:
Des recharges spécifiques pour votre iPhone 3G (12)

* Recharge 10€ valable 7 jours
* Recharges 20€ et 24€ valables 20 jours

Which translates to, using google translate:
Refills for your specific 3G iPhone (12)
According to charging selected:
* Refill € 3 for 24 hours
* Refill € 10 valid for 7 days
* Refills € 20 € and 24 valid 20 days

I'd ask this question at foodnut, too, but the comments section there is acting very strange for me. Here's what I tried to post there:
Thank you for this article. I'll be traveling to Paris in a couple of weeks for a one week stay.
Does this deal still exist?
Details on the sfr site are hard to come by.
Can anyone confirm this sim card plus iphone data plan works with a droid gsm sim-unlocked phone?
I have a droid 2 global and the unlock for it, but any android phone confirmation would be great.
