The National Geographic Talk Abroad 'Lite' Phone

 
Taking your iPad to Italy See our rates and packages below

Traveling to Italy and want to take your iPad, but aren’t quite sure how it will work when you get there? Wi-Fi is Wi-Fi the world over, so no matter what type of iPad you have, you can get on a Wi-Fi hotspot and use your iPad for free, or for what ever cost you may have had to pay to join the hotspot connection. You can join the hotspot the same way you login to any hotspot here in the states, so there’s no learning curve just because you are in a foreign country.  Some hotels will offer free Wi-Fi or you may be able to find a café that has it.  This is great if you don’t need your iPad while you are on the go, but it you want to use it while you are walking or driving around you’ll need to figure out a data service. 

iPad International Data Services:

Verizon iPad international roaming option for Italy
If your iPad is through Verizon it won’t work at all outside of a Wi-Fi hotspot.  Verizon uses a separate technology and isn’t compatible to roam on the Italian networks or anywhere else in Europe. 

AT&T iPad international roaming option for Italy
If you have AT&T you can pay international roaming rates for data in Italy, which can be quiet expensive. 

Apple iPad international roaming option for Italy
If your iPad is directly from Apple and has no carrier it will also only support on Wi-Fi. 

Other options:
Get a local service through a portable Wi-Fi hotspot or SIM card - First you need to determine if your iPad takes a SIM card or not.

If your iPad does not have a SIM card slot or you want to use your iPad and other Wi-Fi devices. You can rent a portable Italian Wi-Fi hotspot and link not only your iPad, but any other Wi-Fi devices you have; smart phone’s and laptops. The portable Wi-Fi hotspot for Italy will support up to 5 Wi-Fi devices at 3G speed.  This will give you 10G of 3G data in any 30 day period and will support wherever there is cellular coverage.  Cellular Coverage is excellent in Italy.

The hotspot device is the same size as a smart phone and comes with the password labeled on the back.  No configuration is necessary for the hotspot or your Wi-Fi devices.  Simply power on, select the hotspot and login using the password.  You will receive your portable Italian Wi-Fi hotspot prior to your departure! Hotspot rentals include an international charger and plug adapter.   

If your iPad does accept a SIM Card.

The good news is that all the versions of the iPad are unlocked and are compatible with any SIM Card.  You will need to opt for a micro SIM card to fit your iPad.  We offer local Italian Data SIM Cards with 10GB of data in any 30 day period.

Walk around Rome, Milan, Florence, Naples or any Italian city or countryside area and enjoy the safety and security of being able to Skype, pull up maps, send email and check restaurant and hotel information. Coverage is excellent and encompasses virtually any town or city in Italy as well as most roads.

You will receive your Italian Data SIM card prior to your departure so you can be sure the settings on your iPad are correct to sync with the SIM before you go!
