Great start to the trip. Too bad about your T-Mobile sim not working in your iphone. I guess somethings couldn't go as planned. I had a slightly different issue last time I used T-Mo out out of the US. Granted I was using a dumb phone, but I couldn't connect to data internationally because the phone was originally from AT&T (it was unlocked). Not a big deal, but I really didn't like carrying around 2 phones the whole time. Although in truth one of them was always in my wife's bag so it wan't too bad.

IPhones are notoriously bad at roaming

Setting>general>reset>reset network settings often helps

Not everything on the iPhone but all the network settings do, which includes any wifi networks and passwords that the phone has "memorized".

Real updates to come. In Eilat and the hotel charges for wifi plus my data plan is limited so therefore I'm MIA. Just found a store with free wifi so I got a post in here :)

I did a 2 week Europe trip and I think the most relaxing part was not having a cell phone.
