    Hello, I'm travelling to greece, and I want to buy SIM-card with mobile internet on it as cheap as possible for my iPad Air Cellular... I will be there just 2 weeks so If is some mobile operator is offering first 30 days with free internet or so it would be great... In which carrier should I buy SIM card contract-free?

    Thanks

    Hello, I am from Greece! At this moment, the best option for prepaid data is this one:
    http://www.wind.gr/en/f2g/bundles/mega-bundles/absolute-surf/

    I am just not really sure whether it's also available to tourists or just to customers that live in Greece.

    I believe that if you go to a Wind shop and give a valid id, you will be ok! You will need to buy the sim card before you activate the mentioned package (I think it costs 10€).

    No info for you...but since you're going to Greece, I posted to say 'Kalo Taxidi.'

    Sadly, its been 14 years since I've seen my family in Chios, Greece.

    I did this last summer. Walked into Wind with my iPhone 4s and received a 30GB or 30 days data-only SIM for 13 Euros. Didn't desire to make any calls, just used text and email.

    SIM cards

    Just an FYI and an important thing to bear in mind: The iPad Air, both generations of iPad mini, the iPhone 5, 5s, and 5c all use nano-SIM cards, whereas all previous generation iPads along with the iPhone 4 and 4S use micro-SIM cards. The two are not interchangable and the latter type won't fit in the former slot. Similarly, the iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS all use full-sized SIMs and those SIMs are similarly not forwards compatible.
