Getting Orange SIM in Paris

Jump to last reply

Ok, here we go again, but I need some help. I have never bought a SIM card in France but plan to buy an Orange the day my teenage granddaughter and I arrive in Paris. We leave the next day for a week in ISLS. Question: will the transaction at the Orange store (either blvd. St-Michel or St-Germain) "most likely" not take up a lot of time? With such a short time in Paris I hate to spend over an hour waiting in line to buy a SIM. The alternative would be just to get the AT&T international plan here at home, but calls are still expensive, and I know I will be making calls within France for cabs, restaurants, etc., since we are staying in an apt., not a hotel in L'Isle.
Any experiences at Orange stores in Paris?
Thank so much for revisiting the cell phone question yet again!
