The 4 main mobile operators In France
there are 4 main phone operators.
Each one offers non-binding contracts that can be fully signed up for online:
- Orange /Sosh
- SFR / Red
- Bouygues / B&You
- Free / Free mobile
Online deals are the cheapest on the market and you will nearly always be able to find highly competitive promotional offers.
Cancelling your mobile contract
Mobile contract cancellation terms may vary from one operator to another. With most operators, the contract is cancelled online, directly from your personal account. You will usually have to wait 10 days before the cancellation request becomes effective.
- Sosh: Online request via your personal space
- Red: Online request via your personal space
- B&You: Online request via your personal space
- Free mobile: Request by phone + letter sent by registered post
Bear in mind
Generally speaking, a mobile deal including unlimited calls and text messages and between 30GB and 60GB of Internet access costs between €10 and €20 per month. Offers that cost more than that are not a good deal for you.
Practical tip: always check the fixed duration mentioned on the contract. Some deals are non-binding, but promotional offers often involve a mandatory 12-month binding duration.
