SIM /Data while travelling in Italy
April 28, 2012 4:10 AM Subscribe
Staying in Italy for 3 1/2 months from June to October 2012. The Flashdrake and I need SIM cards for our mobile/cell phones while we are there. I must have data access as well, at least 1GB a month.
The TelCo industry changes so rapidly however, that I hoped that MeFites might help with current options.
In the past we have had not problem with SIM cards overseas, particularly finding the Lebara
plans great in Europe as they permitted us to call each other for free.

Lebara doesn't operate in Italy, and there is a great deal of bureaucracy in the requirements for identification for foreigners from what I can see online at the TIM
, and 3
site gives a deal of information, and we will have an address and my husband is an EU citizen. I have a visa to stay for 6 months, so am eligible for a statement of residency. We will not have a tax file number.
Do MeFites have any recent
experience or knowledge of Pay-as-You-Go mobile plans in Italy?
Bonus points for info on SIM card for an iPad and/or a mobile wireless device to connect phones and lapstops.
