Amsterdam was my first stop in Europe. I got a Vodafone prepaid SIM in Amsterdam at a Vodafone shop on Rokin Street. I paid the guys 15 Euros and that was it! From then on, I was able to access Vodafone LTE. Most of the time, I saw the signal icon to show LTE+, which I believe indicates VoLTE or Carrier Aggregation active or LTE advanced or something. Interestingly, I have never seen that show up in the US, with AT&T. It worked everywhere I went, as long as there was enough credit. I was in Europe June 28 through August 12. My route was:
Once I got to Nice, my data ran out. I thought I could easily recharge via the Vodafone NL website but the website did not accept American credit cards. So I was stuck without data until I got to Turku in Finland. I had to get the help of my 2nd cousin who lives in Amsterdam. He used his iDEAL account to add money.
