MAKING PHONE CALLS IN ITALY
Italy’s country code is +39 (The following 0 of
the area code also needs to be dialed when calling from outside
Italy, except when making a call to a mobile phone). Phone cards can be
bought at tobacco shops or at a post office.
MOBILE PHONES ABROAD IN ITALY
Nowadays, most of our students take their mobiles
with them. But be prepared - this could cost you a lot.
The second you turn on your phone in Italy you get
locked onto a local phone provider, that routes your calls and
incoming calls: You may be physically in Italy, but your mobile
still connects everytime you use it to your home provider, meaning
that for every call you have to pay two providers the local one
and your home provider.
This often leads to an unexpected and very unpleasant surprise
on your next phone bill.
What to do?
a) Do not use your phone frequently,
remember that you may also pay additional charges for calls you receive
b) Ask your service provider which
italian network will be the cheapest for you to connect to when
you arrive or even better: buy a roaming solution
(you can easily find offers on the internet) this saves between
20 - 80% on the costs when using your mobile phone in Italy.
c) Or buy an italian prepaid card.
If you already own a mobile phone you can buy a SIM card locally.
This is the cheapest solution, however ... you have to give your
friends the new Italian number (also check if your mobile phone
can use Italian SIM cards and networks - in Italy the networks
use the European standard GSM 900/1800).
The major mobile service providers in Italy are:
