Cell Phone/SIM Card Paris purchase NOW. Emergency Situation

Jump to last reply

I'm asking this as a favor for a relative who currently has friends in Paris who did not bring or rent a phone ahead of time. This is how the question was sent to me:

"two friends from Philly came over for a week, husband is very sick and in hospital. Wife does not have phone - what is the best thing - cheapest and most practical - to getting a phone for, say, a week to ten days. She needs to make calls in Paris and to the US. And what sort of store does one go to?"

Any Fodorites have some practical suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Also, my relative is also currently in Paris and speaks French, so that could help the situation.
