        The SIM may need to have been "seen" by T-Mobile's USA network to complete activation.

              Prepaid roaming with T-Mobile is a special subject with many issues. It's not like most European carriers, where prepaid roaming works almost as well as postpaid. The only alternative that I can offer you is to buy a French prepaid SIM. Maybe someone else knows other tricks but I don't.  If you can't register on any network, you can't send any codes. I think what you probably needed to do was to log onto T-Mobile (US) and enter the code "#RON#" then <SEND> to activate your roaming. If your phone supports WiFi Calling, you might be able to use WiFi Calling to call T-Mobile's international support at +1-505-998-3793 to see if they can help you. Not sure if this will accomplish anything good or not.

              Hi magenta3002928! I know your trip may be coming to a close, but I wanted to check in here and see if you'd been able to contact our international care team for help, or enable roaming on your own using the short code that drnewcomb2 provided! How are things going for you?
