Hi. Are you sure that your Droid will work in Paris? I have a first generation Motorola Droid, and I've been told that because of a conflict with some French ISPs, the Droid is blocked from accessing the internet when outdoors. I don't know if this explanation is correct, but I can tell you that I spend every summer in Paris and for the past two summers, I have never been able to connect to the internet if outdoors (there is freely accessible internet throughout the city, and in most parks, and I can always connect with my laptop). I can connect when inside my apartment, though, so I know it's a problem with outdoor access. If you are able to use your Droid when you get to Paris, I'll be happy to hear that. Good luck.
