Where can I get a France number to receive SMS?

JyleeJylee Member, Provider

Hi everyone!

I am going to buy a dedicated server from France, which has the France-only restriction and need to verify the phone number. I need a France number to bypass the SMS verification. I've searched it on Google but find nothing. Anyone who can provide it? Thanks.

  • This means its restricted to france restidents only, an ordering will only result in your dedi being terminated mid contract. wouldn't it.

  • OP, have you ever considered that they require a French number for a reason? Maybe because they don't want non-French people buying their services? Hmm?

  • JyleeJylee Member, Provider

    @awson non-French people can buy their lower configurations with the same price- - what I wanna buy is online.net.

  • If I remember well you can find a france number at messagenet.it

    dedi.net Your dedicated server. Domain for SALE!

  • jeez, respect the host man.

    Normally I might agree, but online.net does in fact serve non-French customers, however they do not sell certain advertised models to non-French customers. I can't see any reason for that if they are willing to sell non-French customers their older models, as well as their more expensive models. OP almost certainly wants one of the lower tiered ones that a non-French account can't buy.

    Anyway, I think Skype offers French numbers, but you need to provide them with a French address, just google something maybe.

    Skype: You will need to enter your name and address. Only residents of France can buy a French Skype Number.
    it needs Verification too...

    @essebe
    it seems that messagenet.it only provides France voip, not SMS.

    Oh get off your f---ing high horse. That host doesn't respect us, non-french citizens -- so in my book they don't deserve any respect whatsoever. Personally I would just boycott them, but if @Jylee is adventurous then I see no reason what should stop him from trying to bypass their Nazism and get the same deal as FR people are getting.

    Compare http://console.online.net/fr/order/server and http://console.online.net/en/order/server

    There is simply no valid reason why people from abroad have to get by with a 160 GB disk instead of a 500GB one, for the same price. Or not have access at all to the 14.99 EUR model. Also people have pointed out that this is illegal by EU laws, they have to offer the same service to at least all of the EU, and not just France.

  • Are you a citizen of an EU country? If yes you should be able to put pressure on them to sell to you.

  • I can't add anything to what @rm_ said except that I totally agree with him. I have one of these deals myself, where I have 160GB but the same server is sold to French nationals with 500GB. Unfortunately in my case, I had two options-forego the lowest priced dedicated server offer or accept their discrimination with a sigh and nod. I chose the latter. I have since bought an ovh pre '13 server, and will be discontinuing online.net from next month.

    All I can say is, @op, there is every chance that your contract will be terminated later. I have had to contact online.net several times last month, and unless you have a French friend, you might find that hard. It's also likely that you might set off some alarm bells during the order, leading them to demand your documents for verification.

    If he had a French friend, @op probably would had been able to convince him to buy a pre-paid SIM for him to register with.

    If you live inside the EU, they can't make these discriminations.

  • Check out tropo I have international numbers through them.

  • MuZoMuZo Member

    @thedarkfox from what I read tropo only accepts sms on custom USA / CA numbers, all other are not sms enabled

  • JyleeJylee Member, Provider

    @joelgm
    I dont have a French friend and I wonder if I can get one here :)

    @gsrdgrdghd
    No, I live in Asia.

  • I think you can buy a French sim card on taobao...And your English is much better than somebody.

  • @Jylee If the provider is technically able to, but not offering their services globally, due to it's own misunderstanding of the world order, then they don't deserve Your money.

    They seem to anyway. At least they wouldn't sell the better models to any of my dutch friends.

    Also, I'm somewhat glad I wasn't the only one feeling a bit sour about this host @rm_ and @joelgm. I don't know what it is about French hosts, but they sure don't like non-French people.

    If you want to go with online.net I may warn you and tell you they are by far the worst provider I ever had, not only do they have constant problems with their network, their routing is also pretty bad and they totally oversell their network, if I can only get 500kb/s max to Germany, something on their side must be wrong. Also their DDoS mitigation is nonexistent, I was nullrouted multiple times receiving 500mbit attacks.
    Also I had tickets, where they lied to me, I showed them proof that there's packet loss in their network and they simply closed the ticket telling me everything is alright.

    They have to give the dutch the same deal. There's probably some commission that you could report this to.

    I just don't agree, if you dont like it dont buy from them, and if you do go out of your way to circumvent it and get kicked out when/if they find out then dont come and complain about it here.

    They own the company they can impose any rules they want, you dont have to respect them you dont have to agree but it is not right to circumvent it just because you can.

    That may be so, and using a fake phone number is not right, not to mention it puts your data at risk and well the money you pay for the server. However it is also not 'fair' that discrimination between nations is implemented, however I think the actual reason is that they get a taxcut/payback or something if they sell to French customers, because there was another dedi company from France some time ago (I can't remember the name) that offered services only to French students.

  • Well I suppose if that is the reason they may take a dont ask dont tell approach in which case that is on them. I just dont like the assumption that it is fine to fake your details to essentially get an anonymous server and ignore any registration requirements along the way, maybe that is just because as a host I know first hand what kind of trouble that brings.

    At the end of the day do what you want, skype is probably your best option, just dont expect any sympathy if it goes wrong and they terminate service without a refund.

    Go to the USA and open a business with rules that you accept only White race customers, no black people. Or go to Germany and establish a shop with a strict "No Jews" rule. We will see how well that goes for you.

    @Sakura The French sim card sold on taobao can only be used in Europe.

    @tr1cky ok, I'd better get a kimsufi. But kimsufi is only sold to Europe now...

    Right or wrongs, doesn't matter. My thoughts are quite frankly you find a way to bypass ordering for none fr customers, An give it a few weeks till we see another topic bitching about why you got server cancelled an no refund. For attempting to Defraud them.

    Yes providing fake information is clear fraud, This isn't a topic about get them back they cunts for not selling to none FR, its A "I want that good deal so help me bypass checks so then when i get cancelled i will bitch 2x as much"

    I can't believe the amount of people here some of whom work for hosts, An all advising that yeah you should try defraud them, an giving help on how to obtain fake number to process fake order. Personally from a legal stand point id call that being accessorys to fraud. Minor or major doesn't matter, Fraud is fraud.

    There's a difference between providing information about something, and actively participating in a crime, vis-a-vis aiding and abetting a person getting access to something illegally. If there wasn't most white/grey hats who've written extensive treatises on Hacking and Security vulnerabilities would be facing prosecution or in jail already.

    To make it simpler, you buy a prepaid phone for this guy, and you're an accessory to crime. You tell him where he can buy one, you aren't. From a legal perspective of most developed countries. Not considering those nations where an accused gets his eyes poked or arms chopped off.

    It's not a crime to bypass one company's silly country restrictions. It's not illegal to buy a FR-only service not being in France yourself. Seriously, even knowingly breaking a company's ToS/AUP is not illegal. Shocked, eh?

    lol get serious man, they are not doing that, they are offering a service to anyone in France regardless of ethnic origin, they are and should be allowed to do this for socio economic reasons.

    Why do you always have to find the most negative and far fetched bullshit angle to anything you don't agree with like some socio-path.

  • @AnthonySmith said:

    I'm sure you wouldnt be too happy if the Arab countries stopped supplying oil to your nation. How would you like to purchase oil at 30x the current price? OVH and Online.net use hardware manufactured in US and other countries for their equipment, and then create a virtual embargo on sales to other nations. If such a thing were done nation wide, France would find herself in embargo herself. Just because they're a major customer of hardware companies, OVH and Online.net think they can do whatever they please. Too bad the US doesnt have a rule on economic sanctions, when dealing with a company which blocks service to its citizens.

    It's akin to Neo Nazi bullshit, howsoever you try to justify it. Even if they arent suffocating anyone in camps, this, right here, is the start of the patronizing prejudiced supremacy shite.

    It's called 'hyperbole', and it helps to demonstrate the point clearly. The fact that you could not counter it with any factual objection and instead jumped directly to ad-hominem attacks proves that my little comparison was absolutely spot-on.

    This is exactly what they should do. The OIL belongs to the Iraq/Libyan/Iranian people and they should decide the price and who they want to sell it to and who they don't want to sell it to. But when the Iranian people decided to take control and ownership of their OIL, America started it a covert war against them which has intensified over the years.

    Iraq wanted to sell in euro's and was destroyed, Libya wanted to sell in gold and so was destroyed, Iran wants to sell in roubles so is NEXT in line to be destroyed.

    So, getting on point, if the French company does not want to sell to USA citizens, that is their right! Just like USA regime does not allow USA internet and other companies to sell to Iran, or allow USA companies to buy from IRAN. I bet you've never complained about that to te US regime. So AnthonySmith is right here.

  • Although I personally don't agree with the way OVH and online.net handle their potential customers or "differentiate" based on country of origin, it is their good right (I think). Just like many companies in the US don't ship products to Denmark or Norway. Maybe they get government money for stuff they sell inside France, who knows?

    I could think of a solution where they would only offer their website and support in French and if you don't get it, well, that's your bad luck. That way it has a clear, obvious and valid reason and there's not even a hint of possible discrimination.

    Err you never heard of contract law? Someone needs to do reading on basics of law. Esp within EU or as were talking about france, in specific french contract law. - http://www.legiscompare.fr/site-web/IMG/pdf/19._Guiding_Principles.pdf

    If terms an conditions means nothing in law, Lets all go max out our credit cards an not pay. Saying na the terms mean fuck all in law.
