James, the new GBM guy, needed a mobile phone, so since the Maison de la Bible did not require my services this morning, and since the FNAC is one of my favourite places in the whole wide world, I offered to take James there, we met at 10 by the cathedral and we hied us off to the FNAC. Hurrah!
James had a particular phone in mind, in black, and we had already ascertained that it was in stock at the FNAC, so all we had to do was wait and wait and wait until a sales-assistant became available, contract the deal and swagger off with his loot.
There remained the question of connecting the thing.
He had hoped to connect to Free, but they require you to pay by bank card and James' bank card is not yet fully functional. He does, however, have a RIB, so after some checking again on the internet, off to the Bouygues shop we went to get a B&You sim card. Card obtained, installed in the phone, we then set ourselves up on the top floor of the shopping centre to connect to their free wifi and activate James' phone on the website.
I hope that by now all is accomplished and his phone is up and running, with all the rich possibilities for communication that it affords!
