A new entrant named Free has launched an unlimited mobile phone contract in France. For 16 euros/month ($21; 20€/$30 for non-ISP customers), I'm getting unlimited calls to national fixed and mobile phones; unlimited calls to most countries' fixed phones; unlimited calls to some countries' mobiles (among which Canada, where my brother lives), unlimited texts and MMS, unlimited data (throttled after 3GB though), and net neutrality (I can do Skype, VOIP, torrents, newsgroups...).
They also have a 2€ ($2.5, actually free for ISP-subscribers) 1-hr, national calls only (fixed or mobile) , no data, some texts/MMSs, plan, that's great for kids and the elderly. My mom was shelling out about 10€/month for a handful of calls.
Those prices are anywhere from half to one-sixth of last year's prices. Plus we're lucky in France to have enforced phone number portability, so I kept my phone# while switching providers, and enforced phone unlocking, so I got my HD2 unlocked for free (and for Free ^^).
And I got to kick my previous operator to the curve, which was an overdue pleasure. And to brag to my bro, who's paying $100/mo for his Canadian contract (and couldn't even get an iPhone with it, because his MS consultancy requires all employees to have MS phones ^^)
In the end, this feels perfect. Cheap, no random exclusions, and nice extras, free calls to Canadian mobiles especially ^^
