You are going to France and you want to know
about the mobile phone services, operators, and

there are plenty of providers out there so good
deals can be found.
Internet Protocol phones connected to a PC have been providing low cost or
free calls for a while, and they are gradually
becoming available as mobile phones - but a
truly global IP roaming solution is still some
