Effendi, thanks for clarifying the options for me. When I read the promotional offer (using Google Translate), it implies that the 100MB is a one time addition to the data, not per day-is that...

OK, since you appear to have a better idea, I'm all ears-how can I get a German SIM card delivered to me in the US (without access to the address of a German "friend") with low roaming voice/SMS/data...

Inquisitor, thanks for the new link-this looks like a good SIM for my needs (ie, tourist). Since Lidl is a piggyback on the O2 network similar to Fonic, can I assume that the roaming costs are the...

Effendi, thanks for the reply. I guess the best option is to activate the data plan a couple of days before we leave-that way the plan will be functional when we arrive.
