How do you call France from America?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by superbassman2000, Jan 18, 2006.

  1. I was just wondering what it would take to call someone in France...does it cost much? Would free nights and weekends on my cell phone still apply?

    Most cell phone plans do not include international minutes. You should check your plan or call your provider to see if yours includes them.

    Usually a calling card specifically for the country, or at least the region (western europe in this case;)) is about the cheapest way to go.

    Ehhhh...I was hoping for a good France joke.

    International calls are $3 a minute on my cell phone (Cingular). That might be a better option than using a land line depending on your plan.

    Use Skype (about 3 cents a minute), or, if the person you're calling has internet access from www.free.fr, they get an ip phone service that's free to USA or Canadian number, that's how my family calls me (from France to Montreal).

    That's if you are using Skype at your end and calling a number. Get someone on skype at the other end and it's free.
  10. If you're calling a pretty French girl, please post a picture! :)

    I was too... i'm thoroughly dissapointed.
  12. If you just convince Germany to invade them, France will call you.

    How's that?
  13. I was going to call my mom on her birthday (21st), and just was wondering what kinda costs I was looking at if i called her...i found out 64 cents a minute with sprint...It was just a spur of the moment thing, as she is coming home the next day anyways, and the original plans were to call her when she got home :)
    i can post pics if you want...i guess she's not bad looking...for being a mom...
  14. Being a mom has nothing to do with looks. ;)

    Good looks can make it easier for a woman to become a mom, IMHO.
