Lebara pre-paid SIM cards purchased in Paris?

In previous threads, people have recommended buying a Lebara Sim. I know some have been successful in having these mailed to the U.S., setting it up online, then buying the airtime card in Paris. However, if that doesn't work, and you have to buy the airtime/SIM package in Paris, do you have to have online access there to activate it? If so, I have to find another alternative. Perhaps Telestial? The trip will be 8 days long, and I'm only interested in prepaid options.

No, it can be done with the phone itself.

It is however very easy to recharge the SIM online and usually Lebara will add extra talk credit if you do recharge on line. Their website will accept US credit cards.
