We'll be visiting Italy next year for about 3 weeks and I was just trying to figure out which is easier. I know you can get a SIM there for my phone but mine would need to be unlocked and AT&T won't do that unless it is paid for. Unfortunately I just got a new one. I really only need it for maps probably. On previous trips, we were able to use wi-fi for everything else. We'll still use our regular phones for everything else, as far as I know.
1. Pay the $10 a day that AT&T charges. (Not my favorite option even though it is easiest)
2. Buy a phone there and set up a prepaid plan.
3. Buy a phone here and get a SIM there.
4. Something else that I am not aware of.
Thanks for any help you can provide,
