I did buy an Italian prepaid SIM in 2013 and do not recall that I was asked to provide a codice fiscale (I didn't even know at that time what it was and certainly did not have one assigned by the authorities). The process was smooth given that I knew beforehand the option I wanted and only basic Italian or English was involved. A passport / official ID was ...

The three main operators (Tim, Vodafone, Wind) have shops pretty much everywhere, as well as in/near the airport. You can buy a prepaid sim easily, don't worry, Italy is a very touristic country. You might need to sign some papers when buying the sim but that's all. Just make sure it works in your phone, and that your phone also works with the network ...

There are more than a few prepaid service alternatives in Canada, none of which are (IMO) really good value but nearly all of which will sell you a dumb phone to use. For a particular example Koodoo Mobile sells a basic phone for C$96, including the SIM card and a C$20 service credit. The Mobile Shop, 104 Starrs Road, Yarmouth may sell this. Looking at ...

Last year we spent a month in SE Asia. Our flights were routed through Tokyo & Singapore. With an AT&T SIM in our phones, we were able to connect to WiFi in both places with no problems, and no extra charges on our bill. Digression: Now, once we got into each country we visited, I'd purchase at least one local SIM and tuck the AT&T SIM for ...

Unless you have a phone the manufacturer of which has partnered with AT&T to only allow you to use Wi-Fi if you paid a ransom to AT&T (which would be very, very, very, surprising, and would most certainly only be the case for an AT&T-branded phone), as others have said, you are free to connect to any Wi-Fi network you like, and the "package" is ...

Here is a clear case of the representative being asked a question they don't know the answer to. As others have pointed out, their training is minimal. They are not allowed to admit not knowing except in very extreme cases as that would be bad for the corporate image. If they say "It will be free" and is wrong, the customer (you) will be very very angry ...

When your handset first talks to the phone company's cell tower, there's an authentication procedure. For example, your phone or its SIM card may have been blacklisted as stolen, or you could simply be too far behind on paying the bill. So at that point, whatever arrangement between Foreign Telecom (if you connected to their tower) and AT&T kicks in, or ...

AT&T can't charge you to use WiFi. From the page you linked to, that's talking about a service where you connect to WiFi somewhere (like an airport) that you might normally have to pay for, and the provider of that WiFi has partnered with AT&T to allow AT&T customers to log in and use the WiFi. This does not affect your ability to connect to any ...

It is probably possible to make calls from the US to Vietnam, but it depends on your provider. (e.g. Viettel - yes, Vietnamobile - not possible for prepay customers). Before you go, you'll need to turn on roaming. Your provider will have instructions for doing this - searching for Viettel Roaming or Vietnamobile Roaming got me what I was looking for, so I ...
