Travel WiFi - France

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to figure out best way to use my iPhone for 2 weeks in Paris in October.
Has anyone used this service? I'll have wifi at the hotel, but who knows how reliable it'll be. Mainly I want service for my iPhone while I'm out and about - get uber, use google maps, etc. in Paris and some possible day trips. This looks kind of interesting on their website, Travel-WiFi.com. They have several different plans, starting at about 5 euros/day (€50 for 10 days, 5 gb total).My use would probably be minimal as I'll have just the phone and iPad for use at hotel. I won't want to stream videos or anything like that.

Admittedly, I'm pretty cellphone illiterate, as I'm from the "landline" generation, and hate cellphones generally! But I DO want to be able to use it on this trip, especially for data if not much for phone calls.
I have Verizon service in the US, and they have a travel plan for $10/day in Europe and that would probably be the easiest solution for me - but seems a little steep. Another alternative would be to drop Verizon temporarily (I'm on one daughters plan, no contract) and have other daughter put me on her T-mobile plan, which she has offered to do, as she has an extra line - since T-Mobile has no extra charge for overseas. Cost effective, but more trouble!

Anyway, I'd appreciate any thoughts on this, or if any of you have used that Travel-WiFi.com device. Or how does T-Mobile work in Paris?
