Cell / mobile in Italy

Posted by on September 18, 2009

If you have a mobile phone and want to avoid the international roaming charges, consider getting a SIM card from the local mobile carrier.
Here in Italy, there are a few and I picked TIM (which I think is Telicomm Italia Mobile) it is working great! Good coverage and cheap service!
The SIM card with Italian phone number was only 5 euro! No contract. And it came with 5 euro credit for calls! I added a 10 euro data plan with 50Mb per day and I was set.
I’d mention that we did use the phone enough to burn through the credit in 5 or 6 calls so it’s not too cheap but very useful without the roaming charges and all the data I need for email and blogging.
You need a Phone that will use SIM cards. (Sorry Verizon people)
