Italian SIM Card

Hey All,

We have a trip to Italy in June and would like to have an Italian SIM card for our phone ahead of time so we can give the number out to some people we are meeting. Does anyone know where I could buy one online and have it shipped to Switzerland? Vodafone seems to only sell at their locations in Italy.

Alternatively, if anyone has an Italian (micro)SIM they aren't using and that could still be topped up, I am interested! Thanks

Re: Italian SIM Card

Getting a SIM card in Italy is difficult for foreigners. Until a few years ago a passport was enough, recently the operators have insisted upon a "codice fiscale". So if you do buy a SIM card on line, make sure that it is registered and activated in advance.

Re: Italian SIM Card

I'm not sure when they became strict regarding SIMs for foreigners, but last July I was able to pop into a TiM shop in Florence and buy a PAYG sim when i presented by Swiss drivers license as ID.
