Data plan while traveling in Paris

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone, thank you very much for your comments regarding my taxi ride from my previous post this afternoon. I think I will in fact take a taxi from the queue at Charles de Gaulle airport and call for a taxi from my hotel when needed.
I have just been talking to a work associate who has been to Paris recently and she has told me that she was able to buy A sim card that she was able to use with her unlocked cellular phone.
This Sim card included all services such as voice, text, and data of about 20 GB for roughly €20. She said the most popular cell phone provider in Paris is orange.
I do have an unlocked iPhone and I'm now Considering using it in order to get data in Paris as opposed to calling my local service provider to add a travel pack.
Can anyone confirm that a Sim card with data plan can be purchased by a foreigner. My work associate did say that the store did ask for a copy of her passport which they photocopied. I'm not sure if this is a safe thing to do.
Any thoughts? Thank you very much.
