There's no shortage of French living in the United States. 

Naturally, a lot of these ex-pats do a lot of calling back to France, and it's paramount for them to find cell phone plans that allow them to do this without having to take a second mortgage out on the house. 

Generally speaking, most carriers offer pay-as-you-go rates, allowing customers to use their monthly minutes to make international calls. Many also offer international calling pack add-ons for more frequent usage that typically run between $5 and $15 a month. 

In the following article we'll show you the calling rates to France for dozens of carriers, then pick a few of our favorites. First, though, here are the actual mechanics of dialing France from the United States, in case you were wondering: 

Dial 011 +33 + the number in order to complete your call. If you're calling a cell phone, you'll need to remove the 0 from 011 to complete the call.
