Red face 3 Skypephone in Italy - 10-01-2008, 03:55

Hi,
I am about to go to Florence, and I will be there until May. I’ve been looking at the SIM cards and phone options that’s best for me. I really like the Skypephone from Three. I have a few questions. I would really appreciate your help since I cannot understand the www.tre.it site at all! Thanks.

1. Can you tell me the rechargeable plans I could get with this phone from 3? (prepaidgsm is out of date) 2. Does the Skypephone and the 3 rechargeable plan get mobile internet access included, if not how much? 3. Are there any 3 stores in Florence or do I have to order it online? 4. Have you heard anything about this phone – quality, etc. (or should I just get the Nokia 6120 which apparently does the same thing)?

Any input at all would be great!
Thanks so much!!

Sorry, my fault, now the page is updaed:
http://www.prepaidgsm.net/en/italia/h3g.html

I added some info on the Skypephone too...
BTW, basically the Skypephone works quite differently than programs like Fring on a Nokia Series 60. You are not using VoIP on the UMTS network (with often very low quality and long delays), but it's a normal (toll free) call to a special number which forwards your call through VoIP to the other Skype user. So quality is really not bad (even of course a bit lower than a normal phone-phone call).

With 3 you have a very good option for mobile internet which is called "Naviga 3": it costs € 9/month and you get 50MB of data every day.

There's plenty of shops in Florence, take a look HERE. You can also ask help to my "colleague" AndreA, he's from Florence.

The Skypephone is a ZTE, so Chinese phone, but it shouldn't be bad...

Ciao from... Firenze

In Florence you have three official store (and dozen not official) by 3 Italia. The best one imho is in downtown, Via dei Calzaioli... they are friends of mine, too. So if you want to buy it you can go there without any problem.

About the quality actually I read some troubles about display, but in the months hope they will fix the bug. Anyway... 6120 is different, symbian based and you need a 3rd application (Fring) to use Skype.

See you! Maybe a in Florence
