A safer option, if you don't know exactly what you want, is to walk into a shop and talk to someone who knows the product range.

Be sure about what service provider you want to go with first. Don't go to a Base shop for Proximus for instance, and whilst Media Markt usually have good, knowledgeable staff, there are also predatory sales people from the providers who will sometimes try to pounce on you unawares.

They will fail, I will not be buying him a contract, he's on pay and go. If all else fails I play the I don't speak any other languages card with them. I won't be switching to any big provider, he's with Carrefour
. I know more or less what I'm after so just want a good online store.
