Default Italy: How to activate a Vodafone pre-paid SIM card? - 14-07-2010, 15:36


I received a pre-paid Vodafone SIM card when I bought an iPhone in Italy last year. The card is a USIM 128K 15.21; it has a PIN, a PUK and what looks like a serial number, but no phone number. When I plug it into an unlocked phone, the phone says "inactive SIM". I tried the web site, and there is an option of activation (I think; my Italian is very basic) here:

but it requires registration, which in turns requires a phone number.

What am I doing wrong? Is there any way I can activate the SIM before I go to Italy?

Thanks a lot for any help!
