If you’re planning on paying a visit to France you might just as well make use of the fact that French laws have prohibited the locking of the iPhone to any specific company. Orange offers iPhones from approx 399€. That’s less than 600US.$.
So when you’re in the country anyway it might be a very good idea to change your cell phone into something you can truly use in many ways. If you haven’t yet done so, you might in fact want to know much more about Apple, iphones, Macs etc on my Mac-blog which you can find here: http://www.blunck.dk/loves-apple-mac
Watch out for more on vacation planning in the weeks ahead, and please don’t forget to give feedback. It’s more than welcome so I can include YOUR wishes on this blog. 🙂
