    There is no 30 Day Plans in the USA. Personally I have no desire to help
    someone screw an employee or company by helping you use their phone for 30
    days fully knowing that your just going to return it, but thats just me
    being a product of my parents bringing me up with integrity. That being
    said, you can buy a Cheap phone off Ebay for $20-$25 and own it, probably
    cheaper then renting one, and buy a Prepaid LOCAL SIM card where you are
    going in Europe. And depending on how modern you need it to be, you can
    probably get a GSM 900-1800 phone less then that. The phone MUSTY be capable
    of GSM 900-1800. Many USA GSM phones do not have that, unless it is a World
    Phone.

    All of the big US carriers have free trial periods, and there's absolutely
    nothing wrong with taking advantage of them.

    Call your hotel in France and ask them about prices for local cellphones to
    go with your room. Attached to the room bill, let the company pay for your
    cell...(c;

    Most hotels have loaner cellphones for this purpose....
