1 Mobile Phones on 7th November 2009, 6:40 pm

So I'm still using (or, rather, trying NOT to use because it's so expensive) my English mobile. The problem is that I'm locked into an English contract until April, so don't really want to go onto an Italian contract. However, I would like to have an Italian phone so that I don't get charged for receiving calls from idiot telesales companies in the UK. Razz Also, my boss is bugging me about the fact that he has to pay loads of money to call me. Not that he ever does, but clearly it annoys him that I'm not fully integrated into Italian life yet. Wink

SOOO, I'm after an Italian PAYG, that I can just have available for emergencies and incoming calls. Does anyone have any recommendations of which provider to go with? Also, is it possible to get an iPhone on a PAYG contract? (I'm thinking probably not, but would LOVE for somebody to contradict me!)

Ooh, just looked that up. Very nice indeed!

Thanks for the info, ladies. I'll look into TIM and Vodafone. It'll probably come down to which one gives me the cuter phone in the end Very Happy

Hehehe. No, not yet. I was going to go on Saturday, but I had to do stupid examiner training in the morning, and in the afternoon I just wanted to go back to bed! I'm going to try to get one this weekend, when I can rope my flatmate into coming to the shop and translating for me Very Happy
