Telephone Number
by Frankie • Mon 05 Mar 2012 11:15

We are due to move over to France shortly, we have had our house in Creuse for over 12 months, the previous owner had a land line for which we have the number, but this was disconected prior to them leaving, The question is will this number still be allocated to this house, or do the French recycle numbers as they become available, I need to get this sorted so i can get an intenet account up and running.

Your best resource may be the English-speaking help lines. Sometimes there's a rather long wait, but it can be useful both to answer your question and to set up your internet account, if you want the internet via Orange.
btw, if you plan on living in France a longish time, it may be better to buy the Orange Livebox rather than rent it. The downside is that if the Livebox gets fried by a lightning storm, Orange will generally replace a rented one. Be sure to unplug all electronics before storms.

- France Telecom (Orange) 09 69 36 39 00 or from outside of France +33 9 69 36 39 00

There is now an english lady in the Orange Shop in Guéret, see her when you come over, but not mondays, it's generally closed.

lestroisours thanks for that, I will go in next time we are over, looking for Internet, maybe mobile. Not sure what the score is regarding having a land line, I dont think we need it but we will see.
