Going to Paris with just 3 days stay. Would like local SIM card, no data. Is it possible to purchase at airport?

What is not the less important aspect, is it possible to activate the card immediately on the airport? – Danubian Sailor Nov 1 '13 at 19:28
I'd be very surprised if it wasn't, though you might end up paying a premium – Gagravarr Nov 1 '13 at 21:54

You can only buy Orange SIM card from an Orange store I think, and I've never seen one at CDG. All their stores are listed here: a new SIM card cost just under 10 euros and includes 5 euros of credit.

It's still called "Mobicarte" I guess. Expect very pricey communications for phoning abroad (from France) with this card. Also there may have a few days of delay for activating phone calls outside France (not sure though, but from personal experience it took 5 days of activation to be able to phone FROM abroad - Netherlands - to France with a Mobicarte) – FelipeAls Dec 8 '13 at 8:40
