Bank and mobile basic info (Paris)


My name is Tomasz I am a Polish guy in late 20’s, I will be moving to Paris from Milan on Saturday 16th of June. I don’t know completely the French reality nor the language, that’s why I would like to ask you fellow expats for some advice regarding basic stuff like:

- Which mobile network is “best” to get a prepaid sim card and what kind of documents are required?
- Where to open a bank account, which bank has an extensive internet offering and provides at least some sort of customer service in English?

I don’t know anyone in the city, so if you would like to meet after work to eat something and/or get a drink let me know. I will be more than happy to get to know new people. I will be working in Av Matignon (8th Arr).

Thanks in advance for info and see you soon;)
