    Hi anyone any ideas where to get a pay as you go dongle for the internet in France? I have tried several shops and just get the normal shrug of the shoulders. I went into an orange shop and they thought they sold them but could not find them. When I'm in the UK I use3 but they dont cover France. I'm sat outside a bar at the moment using there free wifi but would prefer to have my own connection. I'm sure I have seen a post on here about PAYG but cant find it now!

    I have a dongle which I unlocked myself free of charge.

    In France I have used an "Mobicarte" sim from an Orange store.
    They did require photo ID (passport or photo D/L).

    You have to follow the instructions which are in French to get it onto the correct data Tariff.

    If you don't speak French there is a web page somewhere with pics and instructions..

    I'm out and about just now so just posting on my iPad..

    If you want the link I can post it later. :thumb:

    I got mine from the French equivalent of Vodaphone which is SFR.

    I topped up at various SFR shops and some supermarkets.

    A mate of mine use SFR. He bought the dongle and topped up in the SFR shop. (No French address required he informs me.)

    This doesn't help you now but take a look at togglemobile.co.uk

    Reasonable data charges and mobile calls plus no charge to receive incoming calls. Great for France and Spain but NOT for Portugal.
