I don't understand what the problem is, the 2€ forfait is unlimited texts,unlimited sms's and two hours of calls to French landlines, French and American mobiles and landlines in 56 other countries, which includes the UK, we have between us seven free 2€ sims and we can ring UK landlines from France with all of them.

The travel option is to use the phone while you are abroad, not to ring international numbers while you are in France.

If you check out the website it lists all the countries included in the ,2€ sim forfait, the UK is one of them, the bonus also is you can phone US mobiles which is really really handy.not.

Maybe you should contact free and ask them, we have had ours for years, maybe they have changed the package?

Very strange.  I can phone almost all of the EU landlines and never get charge a cent?

You can't get in trouble bill wise as if you do not pay the 10€ fee it will not let you make an call to a destination not included in the 2 free hours call allowance.

ie if I try to phone a UK mobile whilst in France it will not connect.

If I try to use it in the UK it shows emergecy calls only as I do not pay the 10€
