wco81 -

I should have added that, I think, my $5US was for a week of unlimited access, but that I'm pretty sure I went over into the eighth day technically, and I didn't get cut off.

Great! Nice find!

If I read it right, I just have to put in "kolbi3g" as my APN.

The time costs about $9US, but I guess there may be a card cost also.

So Telestial says their Passport SIM will work, but it's expensive ($1/MB). They say their TIM won't work for data.

Prepaid Data SIM for MiFi HUAWEI E585

I'd like to buy an unlocked HUAWEI E585 for use in Italy.

Is there any way to buy the prepaid data SIM in the US before I travel? The two options over at Telestial say they won't work with data.
