One more tip. You can purchase a card through a U.S. service such as Telestial, or you can get them directly in Italy. Either way, you'll need to give them a passport and an Italian address so they...

I had a TIM card for my trip. It got decent 3G and 2G reception in lots of places (although note that buildings in Rome have very thick walls and sometimes I'd go from 5 bars outside to 0 inside). ...

That's too bad. It's yet another thing we seem to be losing to the terrorists (either that, or it's a convenient excuse to force us into ridiculous roaming charges, particularly on data). Anyway,...

Yes, there are lots of shops that will unlock just about any phone. If I recall correctly, most PAYG plans don't support GPRS/UMTS.
