Telephoning from France: important information

American and other international (as against European) students should be advised they will generally need to make special arrangements with their cellphone providers to be able to make or receive calls once they arrive in France.

In many cases it is necessary take out a temporary supplementary contract (involving extra cost), download a special application,or possibly purchase a separate SIM card.

As students very often want to phone home as soon as they arrive in France, or receive incoming calls, we strongly recommend they contact their providers BEFORE they leave their home country, to make the necessary arrangements.

Thank you in advance for heeding this advice.
