Abstract. In this note we consider long range $q$states Potts models on $\mathbf{Z}^d$, $d\geq 2$. For various families of nonsummable ferromagnetic pair potentials $\phi(x)\geq 0$, we show that there exists, for all inverse temperature $\beta>0$, an integer $N$ such that the truncated model, in which all interactions between spins at distance larger than $N$ are suppressed, has at least $q$ distinct infinitevolume Gibbs states. This holds, in particular, for all potentials whose
asymptotic behaviour is of the type $\phi(x)\sim \x\^{\alpha}$,
$0\leq\alpha\leq d$. These results are obtained using simple percolation arguments.
