I am going on vacation to Italy for 3 weeks. I plan on bringing my unlocked phone and purchasing a sim card either from vodaphone, Wind or TIM. Though, I am hearing different things from different people. I am travelling to 7 major cities and I am told you have to buy a new card in each region? Isn't the SIM simply the phone provider then I can choose to buy my minutes either prepaid options or in a package monthly deal?
So if i buy my sim card and minutes in the Rome airport and travel to Florence will the minutes I purchased in rome work in Florence also? Is it considered long distance and therefore I need to pay long distance charges onto of my regular charges per minute?
Thanks in advance for your responses!
