    Default Very basic mobile phone needed

    I need some advice please. I have to go to France for a few weeks shortly, and I may need to ring my relatives who live there, within France. No need to call outside France.

    I gather it has to be GSM capable, unlocked, and I would buy a local calling SIM card for it when I arrive. Does that make sense, and any suggestions for what I should buy, here in NZ, please? As dumb a phone as possible, in other words!

    It is probably easiest to buy a phone and plan in France. There is a lot of competition and prices are reasonable from what I recall. There are lots of phone shops just about anywhere

    This may help? https://en.selectra.info/broadband-p...uides/sim-card

    Thanks for the link. There's plenty of information there. I don't speak French, but I may give it a go when I arrive.
