Some little help to non Italian speakers:
- Seleziona Regione: Select Region
- Seleziona Provincia: Select Province
- Seleziona Comune: Select Municipality

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

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.

First of all check the COVERAGE.

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

3 PREPAID DATA OPTIONS
(they are not data plans; all options can be added to any 3 prepaid plan)[/CENTER]

- Naviga3 Week: 100 MB/day worth of data for € 3.00/week
- Naviga3 Month: 50MB/day worth of data for € 9.00/month
- SuperInternet: 3 GB/month worth of data for € 5.00/month

LIMITATIONS

From July 2010 SuperInternet can be used only for mobile surfing: no tethering, no USB keys.
All options are available only while in Italy using 3 network or abroad on other 3 networks ("3 like home" option applies).
Out of 3 network (national roaming on TIM), surchages per KB apply.
Outside of Italy (out of 3 networks), normal roaming rates apply.

HOW TO ACTIVATE THE OPTIONS?

Just call the tool free number 4321 and select 1. All prompts will probably be in Italian only.

All options will renovate automatically every month (or week for Naviga3 Week). When your credit goes down to 0€ you won't be able to use the option anymore until you refill. Consider also that 3 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/week.

In case you want to deactivate the option just call again 4321.

3 PREPAID DATA PLANS
(they are real data plans, no voice calls allowed)[/CENTER]

- SuperWebTime: € 0.90/hour
- SuperWeb: € 0.10/MB

On the SuperWebTime you can activate one of the following options:
- Super Web.day: 4 hours/day worth of data for € 1.00/day (valid from 0.00 to 24.00)
- Super Web.week: 15 hours/week worth of data for € 3.00/week (valid from Sunday to Saturday)
- Super Web.100: 100 hours/month worth of data for € 15.00/month (valid from the 1st of the month)

To activate the options to to BENVENUTO IN 3 INTERNET

DATA SETTINGS

- APN: tre.it, username 'guest', password 'guest';
- Known limitations: none, but it's always better to avoid the national roaming on TIM, since it's always out of bundle.

Default Small Update - 09-08-2011, 12:07

Thanks Effendi,
great job this list! Saved me at least a week in the price labyrinths of all these companies.
Here a few updates I found:
-Wind: All Internet No Stop options are limited to mobile surfing, for USB keys only Mega Unlimited or the time-billed Mega Ore option
-MTV Mobile: All Prepaid options have an activation fee of Ä 5.00
-COOP.voce: All Data volume options are restricted to mobile surfing, for USB keys only time billed options

Since my restriction was data volume rate for USB keys and no activation fee, I ended up with Vodafone, which strange enough is the only company offering that.
Cheers
Albo

If you use the plans with a Mifi device feeding mobile as well as laptops, how would they know?

I was able to use TIM that way.

AFAIK both COOP and Wind "suggest" to use those options on your phone, but you can use them for tethering as well, no problems at all, I have the Internet No Stop on my phone and use it regularly to connect to internet with my laptop too.
