My girlfriend and I are going to be living in berlin for the next 5 months, and we're going to want to grab german SIM cards. I'm having a hard time however finding any useful information.

Which of the major carriers makes the most sense for us? We don't use our phones too too much, and have skype etc for international calls.
Does anyone offer short-term contracts? Are we stuck with pay-as-you-go?
Is there any chance I could get some sort of data-package without a multi-year contract? I have a 1st gen iphone and would like to be able to use the maps app while exploring around the city.
How does intra-euro roaming work? I'm going to be doing some traveling, and would love to have reasonable use of my phone during that period without having to keep getting a new number.
Thanks in advance, mefi.
