Pre-paid SIM card + data plan?

by okim

For a trip to Rome in just a couple of weeks, I've unlocked my TMobile phone and am told the best thing to do is get an Italian pre-paid SIM card to use while there. This seems simple enough, but I can't seem to find info about data plans. The whole reason why I'd like to take my own phone is for the GPS and data (Google maps, directions, etc), and I see that Rome has pretty solid 3G covereage.

Can anyone tell me if these pre-paid SIM cards include data as well? I'd hate to get there only to find that I can't use my phone as I had hoped.

Hi. I'm sure you'll get a reply to this, but you might consider posting it again on the Technical Forum. They are pretty fast with answers to cell phone questions.

Enjoy Rome.

Re: Pre-paid SIM card + data plan?

by Manara

Pre-paid SIM cards exist in several versions: phone only, data only and SIM for smartphones.
I suggest to go and buy your prepaid SIM at a Vodafone shop, asking specifically for a "Sim prepagata per telefono e internet". If you show the type of telephone you have it may help. Even if the salesperson does not speak English words like smartphone and internet are used by everybody.
Remember that in Italy we usually pronounce acronyms as if they were one word, not letter by letter, so it may be hard for a salesperson to understand if you spell SIM letter by letter, but they will understand if you say Sim (pronouncing the "I" as in pizza).
There are several tariff plans also for pre-paid cards, and I suggest to ask for the one called "senza scatto". It means you do not have a fixed charge each time you call or connect and you pay only for the time you stay connected.

Great - thank you!

Travel Tips for Rome

Just walk!

by magyarozag

The best thing about Rome is, you can just walk, and when you walk you are bound to find something not in the Berlitz guide or Lonely Planet. I decided to walk off into the city and was pleasantly surprised by the things I saw. I saw three of the infamous cats of Rome, a knife grinder (which you barely get in England) and a market selling all kinds of fruits and at twice the size of back home.

sip a cappuccino

by chicabonita

... a short break, enter one of the many bars and have quickly a cappuccino at the bar and op on the way again!

I really was surprised how cheap a cappuccino is. In a bar in Trastevere we paid EUR 0,90 for one! I know no place in Germany were you would get a cappuccino for this price or any other drink. Not even a glass of water!

As I understood they have different prices depending if you sit down or if you stay at the bar. We stayed at the bar ...

Michelangelo's House

by icunme

The large avenue which today connects Porta S. Pancrazio with Gianicolo is embellished by the facade of the Renaissance house (it is only the facade hiding a water reservoir) that was once the facade of the house where Michelangelo lived. It was located near Macel de' Corvi at the foot of Campidoglio when it was his residence. Michelangelo preferred to live there rather than near the Vatican to have a greater privacy. The building was pulled down with the whole area towards the end of the XIXth century and the facade was rebuilt on the street (Via delle Tre Pile) leading to Palazzi del Campidoglio, but in 1941 the need to enlarge this street led to a second move of the facade to its current location.

Easy and Quick

by jlanza29

A taxi to the center of Rome has been known to run about $100 Euro's with traffic....forget that and jump on the train to Termini Station if you fly in Leo Da Vinci's airport (the main international airport in Rome) where you could transfer to the metro, or catch a bus or even get a long distance train to other parts of Italy, make sure to validate your ticket if not you risk a big fine. And unfortanetly be aware of pickpockets....they work in teams and target this train from the airport specifcally !!!!! The round trip cost 15 Euro's and trains run every 15 minutes.

Napolitan Pizza

by OttoMarzo about Alla Corte Dei Borboni

Napolitan pizza is heavier and thicker than the Roman one. So it's up to you. "Alla Corte dei Borboni" is the best example of Napolitan pizza you can have in Rome. The atmosphere is great, waiters are dressed in typical ancient napolitan dresses, the menu is typically napolitan. Something that can change your life. Booking necessary on weekends. "Pizza Amalfitana" (buffalo mozzarella, rucola and lemmon slices) and "Mozzarella in Carrozza" (fried buffalo mozzarella slices)
