Hey, all the details are here about prices:

 

http://giffgaff.com/index/pricing

 

france uses the same type of gsm network so yes you should be able to roam over there but i'm not sure which network they partner with

 

Cheers

it will work and you will be charged roaming rates as in eu see price list. you will not be able to use internet as not available outside of uk. you get charged to make and recieve calls and also sending texts. free to recieve. you cant use any bags or allowance outside uk too.

Re: using giffgaff abroad

yeah. I don't think theres anyth set-up thats needed.... just make sure that you have enough credit on the account... or have acess to the internet so you can top-up online (should work shouldnt it?)

 

bear in mind there is currently no internet access onyour phone abroad.

 

at the following costs, its still really reasonable:

 

Making calls (per minute)35p
Receiving calls (per minute)15p
Sending texts10p
Receiving textsFree
