Getting a prepaid sim in Italy for data - help needed...
 
Hello,

I need to get a prepaid sim for use in Italy mainly for data, so would use it in a mifi device probably.

Can I just walk into a store and buy one?

I have generated my own tax code number as advised.

I will be flying into Venice next month for a vacation, so need to buy at Marco Polo airport if possible.

Looking at maybe Wind or TIM - but looking at the sites it seems like you have to enter into a long contract and I am confused, as I only need it for 3 weeks.

Thank you.

Italy is the land of prepaid, no need for long time contracts.
Take a look here for all the offers:
Prepaid data overview (Italy)

And yes, you can just enter any shop and get a prepaid sim for 10€.

Hello Friend. I have just learned something new. The easiest way to get a italian sim with data plan are as following: Go to any electronics store and buy a 10euro Wind card(remember your passport) then wait a couple of hours for it to work(in worst case up to 48 hours). When it's working: go to www.wind.it and create an account with your new tel.No. and your codice fiscale. Viola now you can choose between most of Winds offers

On the Wind cards, can you also purchase them at a Post Office or some other more common store, or does it have to be an electronics store?

I will be in Ortisei to ski and looking for one.

Thanks.

Also, are there any sim's other than 3 that will work in Austria as well?

Thanks.

There's a Wind dealer in Ortisei:
PITSCHIELER EUGEN
Rivenditore Autorizzato Wind
VIA J. B. PURGER 35
39046 - ORTISEI - ()
Tel: 0471798071

All Italian prepaid cards work in Austria as well, but you have to pay for roaming. With 3 Italy, roaming on 3 Austria network, you get better rates. But I fear 3 Austria's coverage up on the mountains won't be that great...
