Hi and apologies for the dumb questions. I have a Droid Razr Maxx. I am travelling to Italy and want to buy a prepaid sim or micro-sim card when I get there to put in the phone. Question is, can I just buy one of these so-called international sim cards on Amazon before I leave and use that when I get there? Finding a place at the airport at 7:30 a.m. at Rome Fumicino airport is not likely to be an easy thing to accomplish and I do not want to spend my time driving around Rome looking for sim cards. P.S. I spoke to a so-called Verizon overseas techie on the phone last night and they said that the Razr Maxx is unlocked and compatible with Sim cards in Europe and should work. Thanks in advance. If you could copy your reply to my email that would be great.
Thanks Beefchopper. Another question. There are specific sim cards advertised on Amazon that are supposed to be "for Italy" from UNO and TIM. Would it be better to get one of these rather than an "international" sim card? P.S. I am not going to go driving around Italy to phone stores looking for a sim card. If I cannot get this at the airport when I land then I will just avoid using the phone except for emergencies.
This will give you the information on the prepaid carriers for Italy: Italy You can compare their rates to what you get on the international card. Make sure to look at data - that's the big difference. I chose Wind because it gives me 1GB for one month for 9 euros and I can shut it off until the next time I arrive there.
This is a great source on prepaid data in Italy: http://www.prepaidgsm.net/en/italia/data_italy.php
Hey everyone. Brand new to the forum and I have really learned a lot from this thread. However, I have one specific problem that I need help with. I'm sure bsweetness can answer this one I'll take all the help I can get.
So I arrived in Kuwait, picked up a VIVA prepaid SIM, had it activated, and put it in my RAZR MAXX. I get full bars a an "H" in place of the 4G symbol and can place calls for about a minute, then I get an error stating that com.android.phone has failed. I then lose all connectivity and this error continues to pop up over and over again until the VIVA SIM is removed. This happens every time I start the phone with the VIVA SIM.
now there only other thing I noticed is that the SIM looks slightly different from my Verizon SIM (see attached photo). The Verizon SIM is the one on the left with the smaller looking "chip".
Anyone have any idea what is going on and how to fix this?
