I thought it was possible to pay France Telecom in cash at the agency.  You still need the EDF bill and the benediction but not the bank account.

Why not open a French bank account?  You only need to put a bit of money in it to pay the utility bills.  You dont need to be resident to have an account

It may be worse than you think. It is tough to get a phone line without a gas/electricity bill from the EDF, a signed note from the property proprieter with a copy of his/her ID, and possibly something from your previous village priest declaring you of sound mind and spirit.At least that is what we needed when we moved here a few years ago. (OK-the phone company gave us dispensation for not knowing a priest.)Good luck,C J Flynn
