Vodafone are partners with SFR but do not have a link through using a Vodafone password. I have been complaining to them for 2 years over this.
BT Fon subscribers I believe can enter their FON password into SFR and get connection. That is the way I read the SFR opening screen.
We don't have a landline, being full timers, but use Vodafone for phone and data. €9.99 per day at 25mb data use limit while roaming.
We tried to obtain a French dongle when we were over and were told that even for PAYG you had to have a French residence and a French bank account. Visa was not acceptable.

I'm puzzled by @Grizzly's assertion that he can always get a code for free local wi fi on village Aires. Where do you go to get these codes?
I'm writing only as a visitor, not a resident wanting more permanent access.
When you arrive on the aire or park in the village use your device to find the local wifi. This will usually be locked -I use a kindle so it shows a small padlock icon next to the name. Go to the local maire, campsite, supermarket, office de tourisme or anything else offical-ish and they will give you the access code. Type that in the appropriate box and you can use the wifi as if you were using your home one.
We have usually been asked for our home address and name and been told that this was an official requirement but others on here state that this is not so and they have been given the password without any need to identify themselves.
