Yes, Vodafone offered 2€/day for 100MB in a limited period. They won't deactivate that old offer on sims that have that offer... but this demonstrates how illegal is EuropaSim: it means they've made bulk activations from ~May 2011 to Sept. 2011, resulting activated to a certain person, and reselled throughout Europe. This violates italian regulation: you can't resell a sim which has been already activated to a person.

Which product exactly is behind EuropaSIM? Is it just a roaming tariff activated for a random Italian prepaid SIM or is it some special product?

Also I cannot find these data roaming options (100MB for € 2/day and 150M for €6/day) on Vodafone's website.

All I can find is...

..50MB for € 2.50/day: http://www.areaprivati.vodafone.it/1...obile_internet

..and 150MB for € 6/day + the domestic data tariff: http://www.areaprivati.vodafone.it/1...ablet_passport

Can these tariffs advertised as "EuropaSIM" still be activated somehow?

Apparently it's an old Vodafone Passport Data option that's now been withdrawn from the Vodafone IT portfolio but is still grandfathered for those who managed to get it activated.

The card I got from EuropaSIM was activated the day I ordered it, so the folks behind the site may have a way to get it activated through the back door.

I just noticed EuropaSIM's daily 100MB plan is not EUR2.50, up from EUR2.

Does the rate change affect all users or just new ones, with legacy users being grandfathered?

2.50€ should be the correct rate for users who activated Vodafone Mobile Internet Passport after mid-2011. But probably there's a bug in Vodafone billing system, as I recently activated that offer, and in the counters I see I've an allowance of 100MB (instead of 50MB), but I haven't tested it yet.

To sum up, the official situation should be:
- old users (until mid-2011): 50MB for 2€/day (if you have Mobile Internet activated) or 2€ + national tariff (now it should be 4€ per day in Italy, without any offer - so 6€ in total abroad)
- new users: 50MB for 2,5€/day

The current situation, as far as I know, is: 100MB for 2€/day.

Default 100MB EuropaSIM rate is no more... - 09-03-2013, 18:04

I just got back from a German day visit and checked my balance - it seems I used 55MB of data and my balance reduced by around 7 euros - checked with a colleague, he expereinced something similar in the UK last month.

It looks like Voda IT have quietly halved the 100MB for 2 euros option.

This isn't a problem for me, as I use the 150MB/6 euros daily option most of the time whilst tapping on my laptop in hotel rooms.

2 easy data packages (you can choose just by changing the APN):
100 MB at 2.50 € per day
150 MB at 6 € per day
Special price for Italy: 2 € per day with 500 MB included
it is now 2.5 euro for the 100MB option!
