49 EUR?!?

Unless France's market is dramatically different from Germany's, this sounds like a recipe for failure. I've never walked into an electronics store here without seeing some Vodafone or T-Mobile PAYG handset for 10-20 EUR (including 5-10 EUR starting credit), rechargeable at any grocery checkout counter or ATM nationwide.

Though 60 min * 0.39 EUR = 23.40 EUR, so let's say that the thing comes with 20-25 EUR credit.

They're still asking a 15 EUR premium for a charged-up battery.

No, not the battery. Yeah, yeah I'll get it in a minute.

Just the other day I managed to pick up a (surprisingly) decent little Sagem on one of the better UK networks for £20 (including £10 mandatory top up). The battery was roughly 50% charged too.

Looks a helluva lot nicer (and smaller) than that colourful (-blind?) monstrosity.

What exactly are we paying for here? The convenience of a pre-fitted SIM?
