*Your SIM card comes attached to the back page of your information booklet.  You will need to remove it from the booklet then insert the TIM International SIM Card for Italy into your international cell phone with the gold contacts of the SIM card facing the metal contacts of your international cellular phone.

**When calling overseas from the United States to your TIM International SIM Card cellular phone number, callers will need to dial "011" followed by the country code "39" and then your TIM International SIM Card phone number.  To call abroad from your Italy cell phone simply dial "00" followed by the country code and phone number.

Please Note:  The TIM International SIM Card for Italy gives you a Italy-based phone number.  If you would like to make it easier for callers from the US to reach you while traveling overseas, our SmartForward service gives you a US number that callers all over the world can dial to reach you more easily.  For more information click here.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you invoice the SIM Card service?
Whenever you use your SIM card, we bill your credit card once a month any airtime usage and data transport charges incurred from the previous month.  Any additional usage charges will be billed on subsequent invoices.

Do I have to pay something when I donít travel?
No, there is absolutely no monthly or any other fee.  Keep the SIM card until your next trip to Europe, and you only pay for your usage.  Nothing else.
