Arrow [ITALY] Wind data offers - 11-10-2007, 09:10

Wind chaged some of its data offers once again, so here it is the complete overview updated at 19/11/08.

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

- Mega 1500: € 1500 worth of data credit for € 8.00
- Mega No Limit: € 8000 worth of data credit for € 20.00
- Mega 15000: € 15000(*) worth of data credit for € 30.00

(*) The data forfait for Mega 15000 is divided in two 15 days bonuses worth 7500 euro. Promotionally till March 9th, 2009 all data sent/received every day from midnight to 8am is free and unlimited, with fair use (Mega 15000 only).

HOW MANY KILOBYTES ARE THOSE EUROS?

Using the web APN internet.wind, the data credit in KB is:

- Mega 1500: ~ 488 MB
- Mega No-Limit: ~ 2600 MB
- Mega 15000: ~ 4882 MB

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

TIME BILLED OPTIONS

- Mega 10 Ore: 10 hours of Wap-only navigation for € 2.00
- Mega Ore: 50 hours of Web-only navigation € 9.00
- Mega 100 Ore: 100 hoursof Web-only navigation € 15.00

The billing is per 15 minutes sessions, making the Mega 10 Ore offer pure nonsense and the other two not so exciting as well.

ROAMING NO-LIMIT

Starting on May 5th 2008 a new offer for data roaming is available with Wind. It's called Roaming No-Limit, but it has many limits indeed.
With a monthly fee of € 3.00 you can have the same tariff for data both in Italy and while roaming on some selected countries, i.e. € 3.00/MB (1KB increments, no set-up fee).

The countries where this offer works are:
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Norway, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, USA.

No matter which operator you will roam on, only the country counts.

HOW TO ACTIVATE THE OPTIONS?

Just send an SMS to the short number 4533 (free while in Italy, € 0.50 abroad) writing (text in orange):
- Mega 1500: MEGA 1500 SI
- Mega No-Limit: MEGA SI
- Mega 15000: MEGA 15000 SI
- Roaming No-Limit: ROAMING NO LIMIT SI
- Mega 10 Ore: MEGA 10 ORE SI
- Mega Ore: MEGA ORE SI
- Mega 100 Ore: MEGA 100 ORE SI

All options will renovate automatically every month. 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 only every month.

In case you want to deactivate the option just send another SMS to 4533 writing "NO" instead of "YES" in the above mentioned activation strings.

Is this deal still available? If so, does the same rate apply when roaming elsewhere in Europe, or is it only within Italy?

Hello

My first post on this forum. I'm visiting Italy (Sardinia) in July, and I was looking some Italian data solution for my eee pc.


This seems very interesting, but do you know if this will be prolonged?

Mega 1500 is a good solution (data). Unfortunately it's possible to activate it only until 14th july (the same for Mega No limit)

Thank you! I won't be leaving until 16 July. Is it possible to activate prior to then from the US, via the web or long distance?

Thank you for your reply; however I think I have a problem. I've seen companies that will sell Wind prepaid SIMs overseas; however, it seems that one has to actually enter the country/connect to Wind's network to register/activate the SIM on the network. If this is the case I will not be able to activate the Wind SIM before 16 July even if I buy it and have it shipped to me before then.

Can you tell me if this is correct and I am indeed out of luck on this promo? Forgive the ignorance of this American CDMA user (never used a phone with a SIM before).

Best regards,
