GeneralNeed some travel advice for Paris (besides 'just avoid it') Pin

So, I'm traveling to Paris in a couple weeks to handle a personal matter with my wife and mother-in-law. I'll be there for a week and it would be nice to have a couple phones. So I'm hoping that our group who country hop more often than I do have dealt with the problem we are trying to figure out.

The wife and I both have unlocked GSM smart phones (Nexus 5) that we could easily pop a pre-paid sim into and be on our way. What I'm wondering is, would it be easier to just buy a couple of burner phones at the airport and leave ours at home? I'm assuming they sell them there but I'm unsure of cost and hassle of a sim vs cost of a throw away phone. Never done it before.

Her mom wants to spend some time in the city alone, which given the reason I understand. I don't feel like we need phones, if we want to meet somewhere at six, look at a watch or clock and be there at six. She wants us to have phones so the two of us can do stuff while her mom is out and still allow communication if she needs, like if her mom gets lost.

Thoughts? I've lost the "We don't need phones." battle, not one worth fighting. I just want the easiest option for the money.
