Yeah I already have an unlocked nokia, its a particular handset Ive seen in france that I wanted

If you buy a phone that's unlocked, it'll be expensive. If you buy one with a pay-as-you-go card, it'll still be expensive, but not outright highway robbery. The only way you can get a phone at a reasonable price is by having a contract included. Having said that, have you tried shopping for an unlocked phone on the internet?

Hi Kate

If you already have a phone there is no need to buy another, just contact your service provider and for a fee (ie UK 02 charged me £15 for the unlocking code) you can go to any mobile shop and for around Euro30 they will supply you with a French sim card.  This way you get the best of both providers, just switch your sim when travelling back and forth.

This site is very helpful if you can read French:

Your phone will be tied to a service provider, but you can get it unlocked for a fee. There are shops around that will do this for around 25 EUR.
