I will be travelling from France to Germany / Poland / Austria later this month and I will have a French new SIM card shipped to me when I will be abroad.
Is it possible to initialize such a card on a foreign (roaming) network without the card having been in a phone in the country it was issued from? (if it matters, the card will be from the Frech provider Free Mobile).
- the card has roaming enabled
- I can "activate" the card remotely on the company web site. "Activate" means "flip a switch which will make it allowed to get into the network at all"
- it will not be opened in France (I need the package to be intact - not because I am a bandit of some sort but because, long story, this is what I need)
