Default Italy SIM: time needed to activate - 03-02-2013, 17:43

Going to Roma in May 2013. Lots of great information here and lots of thanks and appreciation to all taking the time to supply the info.

In getting the SIM, I assume either FCO or Termini will be fine. But I'm not finding a consistent answer to how long it takes to activate the SIM. I was last here (Venezia) two years ago and waited far too long to actually be able to use the SIM.

What carrier offers near-immediate activation so that I can actually begin using the SIM upon arrival? If there is no carrier that can offer immediate activation, would anyone be willing to work out an arrangement with me via PayPal or other method so that I could receive a SIM and top up prior to departing?

I'm looking for mobile data (handset only) and voice (calling/receiving Italia, EU and USA). Also looking for a SIM that I can keep active to use once/twice per year for short periods of time (two days to two weeks). Use of the website to manage the account would be a plus.

Grazie mille.
