iphones in Europe

Jump to last reply

Our cell phone provider in the States is ATT. When i inquired about international coverage for a one month period, the rates they quoted were ABSURD!! $70 per line!!


A cousin who travels to Italy quite a bit said he purchases sim cards in Italy for the amount of coverage he wants, then swaps out the cards until he gets back home. He said cost was about 30e for quite a bit of coverage.

Mainly, my 24 y/o daughter would like phone, text and internet access for the iphone. Does anyone have experience with buying sim cards in Europe? are there any other economical routes for us to use? None of us will be bringing laptops, just the phones.

Thanks everyone!
