Cheapest prepay mobile service provider in Italy

by song99

I am planning a 3 month cross-country trip to Italy , I need some advice on the cheapest prepaid mobile offer? What company has the cheapest SIM startpack with focus on local SMS? How much is 1 SMS? How much is the SIM card? I am interested in sending SMS (to mobiles only). No roaming, no international, or other extras, just a few local calls, and most importantly I need to know who offers the cheapest outgoing SMS, and where to send free SMS (online)? What company do you recommend? What offer do you have? Which company has the best local SMS rates? And, it's important: Which particular shop(s) sell each different SIM card, because some are sold online (only)! I think the best list is here: - 1) TIM NETWORK (Coop, Noverca, Tiscali), and then 2) WIND NETWORK (Telepass (from Punto shops), A-mobile (from Auchan supermarkets). Vodaphone is probably most expensive, so I forget it - Thank you.

Research you made quite right.I believe TIM has best deal on the market.
TIM - €5 to activate card, €0.13 sms to local numbers.Ther're also bundles like
unlimited calls (voice & video), SMS and MMS to 3 selected TIM numbers for €3, with activation fee of €9.

As for me i would get their unlimited data pland for €2 to make calls by this service. Freeje - www.freeje.com

Service makes incoming call for both people and you can also call to Skype the same way.

Ok i only need services relating to SMS, like free sms online, or unlimted SMS for 1 week. that kind of thing, also when you say TIM, do you mean the regular TIM, or some kind of TIM company like, Coop, Noverca, Tiscali, or another I'm not aware of?

first you need a 'codice fiscale'

Re: Cheapest prepay mobile service provider in Italy

by cgf

of course you might get a sim without a 'codice fiscale', you can rent anyway to have free SMS you should make (and pay) a contract for at least a whole year and as far I know it's only to some number, not to all and number of the same provider, vodafone to vodafone, tim to tim and so on.

btw why VodaFone is probably most expensive?

Re: Cheapest prepay mobile service provider in Italy

by song99

I have code fiscale, vodaphone is usually most expensive, i don't know about italy, but in other countries, vodaphone is more expensive than its competitor, about free sms, i mean free sms online, if it exits.

What do you think about this offer? Is it the cheapest SMS offer?

Re: Cheapest prepay mobile service provider in Italy

by cgf

vodafone in italy you have free SMS and MMs on line but to vodafone number only as the same as TIM, only to TIM's number and so on..
I know in Italy the SMS's cost from the phone is the same within Italy or anywhere else in the world, so if you had already a phone and codice fiscale you can buy only a sim, just have a look at any promotion, every month there is one.

To sms with a low cost you should use http://www.skebby.it/ (it's a kind of SKype for sms). And as provider you should take Tim or Wind. Vodefone is not working well all over Italy. I had to travel a lot trough Ialy, for my job, and I can tell you that Wind is the one with the best network coverage. Here in Sicily, where I live, Tim is working quite bad...

Travel Tips for Palermo

To get the real...

by SirRichard

To get the real soul of Palermo, take a walk at its markets. Almost every street is absorbed in some kind of chaotic and probably dubious commerce. Try the Mercato delle Pulci, for antiques and beautiful old handmade tiles.
But the maddest, smelliest and best market runs through another notorious neighborhood, the Albergheria. Via del Carmine is the bent and twisted spine of this fabulously seedy district. The church of Carmine is worth the visit too.

Cucina casalinga siciliana

by CliffClaven about Trattoria al Grattacielo

When old Cliffie first went to Sicily more than 40 years ago, the Trattoria al Grattacielo didn't even have a name but just a little sign which said "Vini". Customers came in with a bottle, which was filled from one of the huge barrels. Two brothers ran the place: one was the cheerful waiter and the other sang opera as he cooked in the tiny kitchen. But time passes: the singer died and his brother sold the place to a family who redecorated and reopened. It looks pricey but it definitely isn't. Trust your waiter: he'll recommend an excellent meal.

Piazza Marina Park

by al_mary

This area, now a park, has alot of
history surrounding it.
In 1601, Palazzo Chiaramonte became
the Sicilian headquarters of the Inquisition,
known as the "Spanish Inquisition."
Here prisoners were interrogated, tortured,
and sometimes burned at the stake for
heresies both real and imagined. The
executions were often held in what is now
the park, Garibaldi Garde, in Piazza Marina.

Palermo, Sicily

by Danalia

"Welcome to Palermo"

I arrived to Palermo for 2 weeks
I went to visit a good friend I met tow years before, accidently, on the net.
It was 8 years ago when I first met Alberto and Anna, both live in Palermo, and thanks to them I got to know the city from the eyes of locals , not tourist.
Apart of the beautiful sights of the city, the nice people and my great friends, I remember the fresh fishes's smell all over. Even though it was deliciious, I believe I have never smelled so many fishes in one period of time.
