    I am a dunce. I admit it. Technology is a foreign language to me.

    I have a MiFi and its unlocked (I know not what either the words 'MiFi' or 'unlocked' mean in this context, but I am trying...). Off to France tomorrow.

    Which 'data sim' (yes, thats another one of those words) do I need to be able to use the'MiFi' to access the internet with my MacBook and iPad in France? What do I need to do? I don't want any sort of contract. Where can I obtain the required 'Data Sim' from before the shops close today?

    Reread all previous threads on the subject but I still don't understand.

    Thank you muchly for any information and advice, 'specially if its in simple bullet points!

    If you get a 'three' data sim from pc world or Curry's for £7.99 which includes 1Gb of data and set it up and use it in the UK before you go then the same tariffs apply in France for up to 60 days. Instructions should be in the Mifi device for setting it up, I have only used connected to a PC but it should be similar for Apple products.

    If you can't get one of these then try an Orange shop in France who have reasonable deals.

    Forgot to say, you will need to buy the full size SIM card if it is for a Mifi as far as I know. :)

    Thank you! Brilliant! Exactly what I need to know and in moments of asking, where else could I get help like that?

    Off to my local out of town shopping centre now.

    I may be back with more questions later though...
