Strictly not on this thread as the B&You offer is gone. Bought a top up for my Orange simply from willemijns. Top bloke fantastic service. Highly commended

I'm in the US and my Simyo credit is about to expire. I have a Bouygues recharge number I bought from a tobacco store in France last year, but I don't know if there's a way to use it from the US. Anybody have a suggestion on how I can get it to work?

call 630 (not free outside France)

compose your ticket code + # key and wait (10 seconds ?)

Thanks much for your help! I was surprised that it worked from the US, but it did work after I got connected to the Bouygues roaming network in the US.

One thing to add to your instructions:

After entering the ticket code + # key, you will get a prompt to enter '1' to complete the transaction or '2' to reject the transaction. You must enter the '1' to have the ticket accepted.

BTW, I bought the Bouygues recharge ticket in France last May with the intention of using it to extend the expiration date of the card. I would recommend that anyone who has one of these cards and wants to keep it active do the same.

For this SIM card, one paid call per year is sufficient. no need to top-up if your credit is sufficient.

the official doc says you receive 2 sms (D-30 and D-7 before closing the account forever)

for me in France, i call 3 seconds every semester (cost 1 cent *2 per year)
my grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-son will empty the credit

That's a good plan. One problem is that I can't find anything on the website that shows when the card will expire or when the last call was placed. That means that you have to track the expiration date yourself. I'm going to be in France briefly at the end of May and I wanted to make sure that the card would still be working when I got there.

Also, I don't see any options for data packages with this card. Is per megabyte billing the only option available?

it is true that they are no expiration infos before the 2 last SMS informations...

they are no data packages on this offer.

With this SIM now being simyo, what is going on with the credit? 5 EUR is only for 15 days or so, which is crap!

I still have 8.84 EUR credit left... I'll try to extend it for as long as possible until a better prepaid offer comes around, but still - I signed up under the original conditions of B&You, not simyo!
