Some little help to non Italian speakers:

Here is a MAP which can help you with Regions and Provinces

WHERE TO BUY
Wind - Privati - - Rivenditori
here it the official list of Wind dealers.

PREPAID DATA OPTIONS
(they are not specific data plans; all options can be added to any Wind prepaid plan)

MOBILE SURFING ONLY

- Internet No Stop: 1 GB/month(*) of data for € 9.00/month
- Blackberry No Stop: unlimited surfing and e-mail on BB (max 150MB of video streaming) for € 9.00/month

MOBILE SURFING + TETHERING + TABLET/PC SURFING

- Mega Ore: 50 hours of Web-only navigation € 9.00 (15 mins billing)
- Mega Unlimited: 10 GB/month(*) of data for € 20.00/month

All options automatically recur after the end of their validity period (30 days).

All options, except Blackberry No Stop, have an activation fee of € 5.00.
You don't pay the activation fee if you activate the option on a new sim-card within 24 hours from the sim-card activation.

(*) If you use more MB/GB than the limit of your option you won't pay anything more, but speed will be reduced to 32Kbps.

Bandwidth cap at 32kbps makes navigation almost impossible.
The cap will be active up to 48 hours also after the renew (automatic or with Wind Restart) of the option.

All options are available only while in Italy using Wind network. Outside of Italy the normal roaming rates apply.

DATA OPTIONS FOR INTERNATIONAL ROAMING

WEB TRAVEL WEEKLY
With this option you get a 100MB bundle to be used within Europe and the USA. The option has a cost of € 15.00 and is valid 7 days. It doesn't recur automatically when it expires.
If you use more than the 100MB, all exceeding data will be billed at € 0.90/MB (1KB increments)

EASY TRAVEL INTERNET
With this offer you get cheaper rates for data: € 0.50/MB (1KB billing). It has a monthly fee of € 3.00 and it's available in the EU and the USA. To activate the option send a free SMS to 4033 writing OPZIONE INTERNET SI.

HOW TO ACTIVATE THE OPTIONS?
Just send an SMS to the short number 4033 (free while in Italy, roaming rate when abroad) writing (text in orange):
- Internet No Stop: NO STOP SI
- Blackberry Internet Bundle: BLACK SI
- Mega Ore: MEGA ORE SI
- Mega Unlimited: UNLIMITED SI
- Web Travel Weekly: TRAVEL WEEKLY SI
- Easy Travel Internet: OPZIONE INTERNET SI

When your credit goes down to 0€ you won't be able to use the option anymore until you refill. Consider also that Wind will go on debiting the options also with no credit, so it's important to deactivate the option if you are not using them for a while.

You can activate 1 option at a time.

If you finish your bundle (or get lower speed with the "unlimited" options), you can use the "WIND RESTART" option to reset your counter and start again with the full bundle, paying another monthly fee of course. Just send and SMS to 4033 writing RINNOVA SI.

In case you want to deactivate the option just send another SMS to 4033 writing "NO" instead of "YES" in the above mentioned activation strings. Your option will cease to work at the end of the bundle days.
