Default Vodafone Data Within Italy - 4 Euro Per Day? - 19-04-2014, 18:16

I have had a Vodafone Italy SIM for a while, but it has been some time since I've used it in Italy. I use the Smart Passport rate at 3 Euro per day for European roaming.

I am lending it to my wife who is travelling to Italy. It looks like the default data rate is 4 Euro per day, more expensive than the Smart Passport roaming! I am also not finding any discounted data packages that appear to be applicable.

Am I reading this incorrectly, or is there some package I can but for use within Italy?

You must change the APN to web.omnitel.it and it will charge 2EUR/day.

I think that 2 EUR/day is only possible on Europasim where they somehow activate an old offer from the past which cannot be booked on the original Vodafone Italy SIMs anymore.

For the original Vodafone SIMs the only possibility seems to be a change to a different prepaid plan. Either Tutti 500 with Extra 1GB or Smart 200. Both giving 1 GB of data per month at 14,90 EUR. However the activation of these plans seems to cost 19 EUR.


Nowadays there are more and more good alternatives for EU data roaming:

AldiTalk Germany: 120 MB @ 4,99 EUR per 7 days. EU/EEA+Switzerland.
Orange Spain: 100 MB @ 1 EUR per day. EU/EEA.
Simobil/Vodafone Slovenia: 500 MB + 1000 minutes + 1000 SMS @ 2,99 EUR per day. EU/EEA.
Europasim: 500 MB + 50 minutes @ 3,00 EUR per day. 47 countries.

Each of them has different conditions in its own country. There should be more coming before the summer.

Interesting - kind of strange that the Vodafone IT offer is better outside Italy than inside, at least for casual use.

Your list down below is interesting - any idea of the practicalities of obtaining and activating any of those SIMs from outside the home countries?

A few points you did not mention re the Vodafone.it/Europasim Smart Passport roaming offer:

-It includes Turkey.
-It includes 25 minutes of incoming and 25 minutes of outgoing calls each day.
-Until the 15 of June roaming in and calling to the US is included.
