Europe travel

I have an iPhone 4. Will be travelling to italy and have heard conflicting 'what to do'. Been told 1) buy new cell in italy with pay as you go plan; 2) replace SIM card when in italy; 3) purchasing telus travel pass before departing seems good idea but when in italy, their cell didn't work.
What is best solution?
2 ACCEPTED SOLUTIONS

Choice 1 is certain to work at the expense of a new number and unfamiliar phone

Choice 2 gives you a new number but a familiar phone

Choice 3 keeps your number and your phone, but has more limited data and minutes.

 

Choice 2 likely gives the best value combination.

TELUS recently launched new travel passes for Europe that may be a good solution (talk, text & data from $50). You'll need to make sure you have international roaming provisioned on your phone.

Only thing to add would be that Choice 2 has a cost of $35 to unlock your device if its not already. Consider that against the cost of the pass but if you plan to use your phone abroad in the future, could be a good investment.
