For the records...

I've just returned from Germany.

Got there last friday, bought an Aldi-Talk GSM card. It didn't work but I was busy through the day and only at night realized I had to fax-in a registration form.

Sent the form on saturday early morning.

By Tue evening when I boarded back to my country the card was still not working. Monday was a holiday which would explain a part of the problem, but the fact is that for me that card was EUR 15 thrown in the trash bin...

It would be nice if carriers would realize that tourists sometimes use their services! You can register by phone or on-line, but it is entirely in German. I managed to register on-line.

Even when you top up your balance, you have to understand German - you would think it would be as simple as entering the necessary numbers, but it seems you also have to press 1 a few times in response to questions to make it work.

Fortunately, I was able to ask someone to help me with it. It made me realize that something as simple as using a phone, isn't always that simple.

Sorry that your experience was so poor - now that it has been activated, it works very well. GPRS works fairly well, the UMTS is great where available, and the data is very inexpensive.

Kelly.
