phones in paris

Probably should be in travel - sorry! But i'm going tomorrow so just wanted a quick answer if possible!

I'm going to paris tomorrow, my friend is also in paris. we both have english mobile phones, will i just be able to call her as i normally would? Or is there something special i'll need to do? Will i need to use the +44?

    you will need to use +44 and take the first 0 off of the number. If your calling a number in france then you will need to use +33.

    You will need to make sure that you have overseas roaming set up on your phone and that your handset is compatable for use in France (though this is very unlikely to be a problem these days).

    You should just be able to turn it on and it should find a local french network however if your having problems then you will need to choose to manually select network on your phone.

    This is true - I would call your phone provider to check you have international calling set up though as there are still a few that require you to do it before you get there.

    The thing to remember is that when you talk on it, both you and whoever you're talking to will be charged for the call -no matter who called whom.
