    Just wondering ...why not use the post office to get your new sim delivered?
    You could have a mailbox for a week or so in a French post office. Probably far less expensive than to get your friend to come to France

    Think twice before you answer as you're only allowed 5 posts , unless you pay your membership, 15£.
    Also, depending where you are at the moment, you could use some funster's address here in France....if you ask nicely;)

    Amicalement

    Why not go into an Orange or SFR shop and get a French PAYG sim.I have done this with both, currently use Orange because the signal is better where we are in France but both can be topped up but unfortunately only in the shop and not online.

    I'm on payg with 3 and am now, despite all the posts to the contrary, now into my 5th month using the same sim
    Had over three months earlier last year and returned to Spain in November and still using it.
    Have no idea why...but have read previous posts suggesting that contract differ from payg.
    Have a second sim ready if needed!

    I have just changed to 3 contract and was wondering about this 2 month limit as I could not find and reference to it on the stuff I have from them and we are away normally for 2-3 months at a time. So its good to know your actual experience than a third party third hand opinion. Thanks.
