So to better understand, i'm a simple mind, i have HTC M8 also and am heading to Italy - I can buy or rent a sim card and just place it in the phone and do nothing else other than follow their instructions -- then when I return I just put in the old sim card and everything back as it was?

Hello TCT!

This phone does support the type of cellular networks used in Italy. However, your phone is optimized for the Verizon cellular network. You can certainly try using a SIM card from an Italian carrier, but all of the features and services on your device may not be available.

Verizon Wireless also offers rates and international roaming services in Italy. You can check out that option here: http://vz.to/1oVFiwM

To me Like Car Renting there art to be Cell phone Renting,  I looked that up doing a Google search and Found Rental Places that have phones)   Not sure what the prices are but if there cheaper than using your own phone and running up a cellphone bill it may prove to be a better solution. b
