Rachel GallardIf you have Free as your phone provider in France you might wonder how to get the 3G (Clé 3 G) working.

Although everything was turned on on the phone, I could not use the 3G. I asked various friends who knew a bit more than me but they could not help. I looked online for answers.. I was told my phone could be faulty.. I was getting frustrated..

To sort it out was very easy! I contacted Free on their help line (3244 – premium call!) and they told me to simply download an application called ‘mobileconfig’.

Once downloaded, it worked straight away!

I hope this post will help others who live in France and who have the same problem that I had!

Drop me a line if you have found this post useful.

Please help us!
