    I don't have any answers to your questions although I'm sure AOL's help page might have something. Generally in Europe, you pay for local calls so it could get quite expensive if you're on the internet for a long time. Here's a link to a Portuguese Wifi provider, that might be less expensive in the long run. http://www.ptwifi.pt/Default.aspx

    Wifi is pretty prevalent and will be a lot faster than dial up, also many hotels seem to offer wireless as well. I guess it just depends upon your needs and where you'll be. Good luck!

    If you want dialup, then just google for "free internet/dialup *insert country here*". Don't bother with AOL
