Best SIM card for EU roaming data?

I will be traveling for 10 days in Germany (2 days), Denmark (2 days), and Sweden (6 days) at the end of this month. Voice and texting is relatively unimportant, but I do need data for maps, keeping in touch with my traveling companions, etc. What's the best way to do this, given that I'm in Greece at the moment and need the SIM card by Friday?

Best Multi-Country Cell SIM?

My son is going on a three-week school trip to several countries in Europe about a month. I'd like to either buy a SIM for his (out of contract, unlocked) iPhone 4s, or direct him to buy one in London, at the airport, when he lands. I'm specifically looking for decent voice rates to the US, some international texting, and data to include an available network of WiFi. [more inside]

Best prepaid cellphone service for travelling around northern europe?

I have a friend who will be travelling in Europe this summer. She'll be in Iceland for a few days, then Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and finally Stockholm. She'll be travelling with an unlocked iphone 3GS. What are her best options for prepaid cellphone service? There wouldn't happen to be a single company that could cover her for most of northern europe, would there?

Want to buy/send a cell phone US to EU

A friend lost her phone (ordinary cell, not smart) in Europe (Greece) and is distraught (has no money to speak of). I told her I'd send her one of my old ones, but the chances of getting it to work there (and finding charger) are slim, I suppose. I want to buy a new one and just send over and not worry. However, I don't want her to know it's "new." She'd freak. So. What's the easiest, not terribly expensive, non U.S.-centric option? Any other insight greatly appreciated. (I'm obviously not cell phone-savvy and yes, I googled, but got flummoxed). many thanks.
