This policy is similar for other providers, so plan on refilling in a shop versus online.

There is a TIM stand in departures in Rome Terminal 1. TIM will ONLY accept Italian credit cards, so if you intend to use an American credit card (or one issue in any country other than Italy) to add credit to your account, TIM will not be a good choice for you.

One issue with Italian cell providers is that unless you speak Italian, it may be difficult to navigate through the options such as adding talk time, checking your call credit or accessing voicemail.

You will also have acces to the English speaking customer service, which is particularly important if you intend to use your SIM card for data. Purchasing a SIM in Italy requires presentation of proper identification, such as valid passport or European ID card.

There are no real differences between purchasing a PAYG (pay as you go) SIM and purchasing a contract, except for the rates applied.

Please note: SIM registration is required by the Italian government prior to service activation.

This can be done using your passport when purchasing a SIM card.

Vodafone is also known for engaging in such slippery shenanigans (and they're more expensive - 2.5 gigs for 10 euros).

WIND seems to be less so, but naturally all companies here have their own interests in mind.

If your SIM card is WIND, it will take about one hour to get activated after purchase. 9 Euros a month for 1GB data, plus card costs (around 15 Euros, plus min 10 Euros top up.

If in any doubt, get a wind dongle, around 40 euros.
