I’ve searched the forums and the closest post I found had to do with data plans in Europe but that seemed to stray off course.
I’ll be in western Europe for 35 days – starting in London and working my way down to Rome. I plan to bring a netbook for use at hostels but I also want to bring my iPhone for music and phone calls – and hopefully data (see below).
My phone is from AT&T so I will have to unlock it. I have no problem doing this and it will be safer since I won’t be tied to my AT&T account while abroad and worried about usage charges. However, what’s the procedure for acquiring a prepaid sim in Europe? Can I buy one in London and will it work in the other countries or so I need one in each country? I don’t plan to use the phone that much but it will be nice for calls home as well as to call the hostels or or make other advance arrangements.
Has anyone done this? What about data? Any good/cheap prepaid data sims available throughout Europe?
